My experience was just the opposite. Firefox 2.0 works and IE7 does not. Under IE7, I get a message telling me to download Windows Media player (which was already installed). I downloaded the latest version from Microsoft, and it still tells me that I need the media player.
There does not seem to be any support on whooda.com, so I looked up the parent company at www.vdc.com. It is a subscription service, but NASA TV is free and the viewer can be resized and moved around on the screen. Under IE7, I got audio at www.vdc.com, but no video. Just for grins, I tried Firefox 2.0 and the site recognized my browser, asked to install an add-on to firefox, and it worked great! I did not try www.whooda.com prior to installing the add-on. BTW - The high definition video loop demo is impressive. You need about 3Mbps to get the HD stream.
I watched ANDE, FCAL and RAFT deployment via the NASA TV Landing page. Sure wish I had known about these other sites. The resolution is much better! and... mentioning amateur satellites makes me feel better about responding to an off topic post. :-)

whooda.com does not appear to work under Firefox, so I suggest you open in
