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
