I know many radio stations and other such sites use javascript for the 
players and they don't work in elinks. At least on most of those sites 
the first link which opens a popup window does work. Then you could view 
the sorce and look for a reference to the URI of the media and put that 
in MPlayer or something. You don't even get that far with mlb.com. I'm 
not looking for complete support, if you could just get that playmedia2 
function to work it might be good enough.

As for that General bug, I'll try to get around to filing that soon.
