A while ago I called Windows Media Player a skeleton in the compatibility closet.
Now, here's an experimental compatibility layer for WMP ActiveX scripting, implementing some of the ActiveX version's API in User JS, and I would very much appreciate your help testing it:
Please install it as a User JS and go surfing for video sites (you need Java installed too for it to work). Please leave a comment on this post when you start using it, giving your WMP version. Also report in the comments any broken sites, as well as ones that are broken without the user script but works with it. (Ignore video.aol.com because there seems to be a lot more work to do to get that fish working.) Also be sure to report any stability issues.
A good place to test is here:
Video should not work in a normal Opera but work if the User JS is active.
Thanks in advance!
Edit: note that the user script requires Opera 9.20 or greater.
