Thread Name: PermaThread: Getting Mudcat MIDIs to Play
Subject: RE: PermaThread: Getting Mudcat MIDIs to Play
Something mysterious has happened here since the upgrade; Netscape 4.7 no longer recognises the midis here or at the Mudcat Midi pages, and only offers me a "save as" option. This doesn't happen anywhere else at all (except for the occasional site which uses stupid proprietory plugin software that prevents other programs from loading perfectly normal midis; which is not the case here). I can still play midis housed elsewhere but linked to from here, of course.
IE 5.5 does better; Winamp handles midis there, and can manage everything (with the added novelty of displaying embedded lyrics, now, I notice) but IE can only access the new Midi pages if I'm logged in (I only store cookies in Netscape); if not, it returns a ColdFusion error message and I can't get to the pages in the first place.
Opera 6 behaves as IE, though I don't actually know what plays the midis. Some native plugin, presumably.
