Intriguing. On Win2K SP3, clicking a Play in Netscape starts playback with no visible player; in MSIE, it brings up a player unique to that site and the audio begins.

I suspect that the unique player is part of the redirection scheme which
precludes your retrieving the original file. Of course, that can be
circumvented by capturing the audio during playback, but those concerned
with protecting rights seem blissfully unaware of reality.
