whooda.com works on my Firefox on Windows XP, although the display is no
better than than the smallest NASA RealMedia feeds. The issue appears to
be that it uses Microsoft's proprietary Media Player, software that has
serious portability, DRM and privacy issues.
whooda offered to install an MS Media Player plug-in on my Linux box,
but I'm unwilling to let it try. The link offered saying "Click here to
learn more" doesn't have any explanation, it just starts trying to
download the WMP plug-in.
