I experienced this yesterday. I dual boot Xp, and I've been watching a lot
of news and experimenting with the new MSN Video and Yahoo Video players --
until last night!
For one thing, both players seem to really want you to run them in IE.
Running it in Firefox(windos) produced a popup player with lessened
functionality and a video image that filled 1/4 of the page.
Why would I use Firefox then, you ask? Well, because my IE seems to have
picked up a virus. I had my IE home page set to MSN ( "When in Rome..." ).
So, what happened is the MSN home page came up fine. Then, I went to
www.yahoo.com and it threw a page error that looked as if the DNS was down
or my DSL was off line. Went back to Firefox to test and yahoo was fine.
Then, with IE again, tested Google -- that threw the error. Then back to
MSN and *it* threw the error. Shut down IE and restarted, MSN came up and
went through the same cycle and the three sites failed again!
Good grief! So, it's like even when they build in all this "functionality"
the basic building blocks are on sand, and one little thing being out of
whack or some virus can expose the whole thing.
