Clicking on the video link on this article I get a pop up that says (in an image, just to make it even dumber):
In text, it says:
The CNN.com video experience is optimized for Windows Media Player 9 or above.
No Windows Media Player detected
They also give you a “GET THE PLAYER” link to click on and when I do, the Microsoft site helpfully tells me that:
Your operating system is not currently supported by Windows Media Player.
What a suprise.. I’ve sent a whinge to CNN to ask them to fix this bug and support more video codecs – be interesting to see what (if anything) happens..
