    Hi,

    Could someone please help on - how to capture the windows media player
    (version 9.0 or higher) events on Machintosh Safari browser? Events like
    PlayStateChange(), positionChange() etc. Is it possible ?

    Thanks,
    Preeti

  2. I'm not clear that this can be done : It looks from the ADC
    documentation that Quicktime and other browser plugins require a
    'cocoaized' or 'carbonized' interface to the plugin (eg
    http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn/tn2020.html and
    http://developer.apple.com/document...dateGuide/Chapter02/chapter_2_section_11.html

    My feeling is that since WMP9 was created waaaay before Safari, that
    no such interface exists (unless you can get the Netscape java proxy
    plugin to work). There's no apparent chance of WMP being updated for
    Mac far as I can tell.

    Good luck though !
    Cheers - Neil

    Thank you very much for responding. I am having the same problem with firefox
    too...not being able to capture WMP events. Could you please throw some light
    on this?

    Thanks,

  4. No I can't but I'll be looking at it over the xmas break.

    Without using the NSObserver Java proxy class I can't seem to find any
    exposed events (FF doesn't expose the plugin's methods and properties
    through the DOM like IE does).

    Hopefully I'll have some clues by new year.

    Cheers - Neil

    I am sorry...I forgot to mention firefox on Windows. Unable to capture the
    events in firefox on windows machine. Did you mean the same?

    Thanks,

  6. Yes - but it shouldn't matter that much which platform - if I can get
    it to "work" on Safari or FF on a Mac I'll check that too.
