Not yet, but it looks like Microsoft is trying to duplicate this functionality. The first generation of in-browser video always added the interface "chrome" from Real, Apple or Microsoft... one of the reasons Flash Video took off, aside from the lowered support costs for configuring the audience, was that it was chromeless... would simply add video to the HTML page, and you could choose/create what type of playback controls to expose. The Microsoft "WPF/e" plugin, now in first beta, seems to be mostly about duplicating this chromeless approach for Windows Media, with rights-management if you use the Microsoft video server technology. I don't know what its eventual consumer adoption might be. jd PS: I haven't been able to successfully post to this list for awhile... messages keep getting returned.
