WVC54GC and non-IE browsers

In reading up on the WVC54GC, I see a lot of people complaining about the inability to view the output on anything other than Internet Explorer. The answer is quite obvious/simple: look at the source code for the viewing page. The link that you want to point at is http://your_ip_address/img/video.asf

Of course, you have to have the proper plugin too (that handles ASF video). Alternately, for Linux users you can just type "mplayer http://your_ip_address/img/video.asf" (without the quotes). It takes a bit for the cache to fill but there's also a switch for that if you care to research it.
