Stupid is as stupid does
I was looking around the net for news during lunch, and there was a video news alert for a tornado that ripped through a Wisconsin town. I hadn't heard about it, so I clicked on the link and up popped the Fox News video player. It played the pre-roll advert video just fine and then when it was time to play the video I had requested, BLAM! I got the missing plug-in notification.
What the hell?? The pre-roll video is flash, but then the actual video is WindowsMedia? And I DO have the WindowsMedia player on my Mac - use it several times a week.
Stupid. Just plain stupid.
