    No. What type of plugin do I need? Firefox cannot find a plugin.

    Yeah it is cool, but that wasnt my point. :)

    I am wanting to see if any OS X browser can play it.

    Doesn't play in Safari for me, but (some of?) the other videos on the site do.

    Edit: I've taken a look at the HTML. I'm no good at embedding, but it appears that they're trying to play an MPEG file in Windows Media Player, which I don't think would work.

    Plays dandy for me in Safari, I'm sure it's just a matter of having the right codec installed.

    What's in your /Library/QuickTime folder? I have these, and it doesn't play:

    3ivx D4 4.5.1 for OSX
    AppleIntermediateCodec.component
    DivX Fusion Decoder.component
    DivX Fusion Encoder.component
    Flip4Mac WMV Import.component
    AC3 Codec.component
    MayaIFF.component
    XVIDDelegate.component

    Do you have something that I don't?

    The movie is nothing special, no need to go checking codecs... it's just MPEG1. Not sure why safari isn't bypassing the WMP embedded object statment and loads up the QT web plugin (like munkle screenshot).

    But if you are interested my tech specs are..

    OS 10.4.2 build 8C46
    Safari build 412.5
    QuickTime 7.0.3 Pro
    Acid Search .51 (was off)
    Pithhelmet (was off)

    in /Library/QuickTime
    OggVorbis.component
    Flip4Mac WMV Import.component
    FLAC_Decoder.component
    AC3 Codec.component
    3ivx D4 4.5.1 for OSX

    in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins
    QuickTime Plugin.webplugin
    QuickTime Plugin.plugin
    JavaPluginCocoa.bundle
    Java Applet.plugin
    Java Applet Plugin Enabler
    NP-PPC-Dir-Shockwave
    nsIQTScriptablePlugin.xpt
    flashplayer.xpt
    Flash Player.plugin

    This page was also tested in Webkit Thu Oct 27 2:53:12 GMT 2005 which worked.

    I got also a link that prevent Safari to load the content. It showed the dialog box that Safari doesn't have MIME installed. :(

    Works for me

    Plays for me in Safari (2.0.1) under 10.4.2. I have Windows Media Player 9 for OS X installed on my computer, if that makes any difference.
