Windows Media Player maintains a list in the registry of executable names that WMP9 will work from so the fix is to add mozilla.exe and phoenix.exe as keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\ShimInclusionList key in the Windows registry.

I saw that MP9 was being used properly on the test site mentioned in the bug (after I'd made the registry change), but other MPG files still load MP9 externally for me - I have no inline player. I'm not sure if that really matters to me, but it's interesting.

Hi! Need help on how to make WMP9 work with Mozilla.
I was already able to let WMP9 work with Mozilla under Win98SE by adding the mozilla key under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\ShimInclusionList. However, how would I do this now that I'm using WinXP? There's no ShimInclusion under MediaPlayer in the registry.
Thanks man. More power!

:oops:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\ShimInclusionList
Would not 'search' in my WinXP Pro. I had to manually go to that key, then look at the inclusion list.

not in my list either. BUT i am using WMP 8.0, not 9.0. Haven't upgraded yet. This could be why its not there. If you just installed XP or haven't upgraded to 9.0 yet, you might still have the 8.0 that comes with XP. Try upgrading to 9.0 and see if it shows up.
WinXP SP2 & Mandrake 10
Firefox 1.0 RC1 on both
Thunderbird 0.8 on both

I Have WMP9.
WMP9 is in the inclusion list.
It works well as a standalone, with Firebird, Netscape, Opera, and IE.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\ShimInclusionList
IS in my registry.

Somehow the registry search tool does not Find it by copying and pasting the above key in the Find box.
I can view it by manually going to that KEY.
