WMA Streaming

Does anyone know if netscape can spawn the Windows Media Server to stream WMA files by using code resembling the following?:



<tr>
      <td valign="top" align="left"><img src="images/spacer.gif" width="1" height="27" border="0"></td>
      <td valign="top" align="left"><a href="mms://audio2.*.com/165/229/956.28.wma" onMouseOut="di20('listen','images/detail/listen.gif');" onMouseOver="di20('listen','images/detail/listen_on.gif');"><img src="images/detail/listen.gif" name="listen" width="26" height="10" border="0"></a><br><img src="images/spacer.gif" width="1" height="17" border="0"></td>
</tr>


The (mms://) format works fine with IE 4.0, but netscape doesnt seem to support it.  Are there any alternatives to stream the WMA file format within Netscape?

probably not since this is a Microsoft product...not likely to be supported by Netscape..

I'm not sure of your answer,DreamMaster,
 it seem that Netscape put the Http:// prefix on the url href="mms://audio2.*.com/165/229/956.28.wma

so, the Nescape look for
href="http://mms://audio2.*.com/165/229/956.28.wma

and it doesnt work

I think this problem is due to the Mime configuration.
I'd the same problem a few month ago with the Xing Streaming Server (protocol XDMA that is not provide by Kro$oft)
We finally decide to use a IE5 client but i'm interested in the good  solution.
