Javascript for firefox to catch events from embedded windows media player targeting a frame?

Dear Experts,

This is a long standing problem of mine and I thought that I had found the solution when Microsoft published this:

The trouble is that I can't seem to make it work.  I have tried to replicate it here:

There isn't a slide in the RH frame.  Of course it works in IE, but doesn't work in Firefox and I don't want to install the other player.  The crux seems to be this function:

    <SCRIPT for="Player" event="ScriptCommand(scType, scParam)">
      if( scType == "URL" )
        str = scParam
      str = str.replace("&&sld_pres","");
      alert("The string is " + str);
      parent.frames[1].location = str;

Which won't fire in Firefox.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

    <SCRIPT for="Player"  event="ScriptCommand(scType, scParam)">
is IE only.

Script commands aren't implemented in the firefox plugin.
 It only offers basic top level stuff like play/pause/stop.
 NB the classID and object model you have below is only marginal now,
 it's been depracated for 4 player versions, you should really be using
 the WMP9 object model in IE embedding.
