    Hello all, I have WMP version 10 and Firefox 2. Recently, the appearance of an embedded player on a site I visit often changed dramatically. I made no changes to either application and I cant think of any reason this would happen. If you look at the attached images, player1 is how the player should look on the site, but it now looks like the player2 image. I would love to know how to duplicate this issue because I think it would be useful to some of my clients but I cant for the life of me figure out what happened. By the way, the player worked fine before, and it still works fine. Just cant figure our why it changed! Thanks much.

    did you upgrade to WMP 11 recently? I went to voice America and got the standard WMP 10 interface for an embeded player I always get (using FF2). That second pic you show looks a lot like it belongs to WMP 11, and WMP 11 did come down as an update already

    No I didnt download WM11. The only change that may have happened to either application is maybe an update to firefox that downloads automatically.
    I installed Firefox 2.o and it and it seemed to include the proper plugin for .wmv objects. Then I had to uninstall a player object plugin that I had installed in order for it to work, then I had the current player like that. weird.
