I am not sure what NS7.2, which I don't have does with some plugins. Your music uses Abobe Flash Player 9. If it was not updated, or it was installed before NS7.2, the program may not be able to figure out how to use it.
Flash10 has just come out. Downloadl it. But, wait, until I say that it is ok to install it. Your playlist does well using Firefox with Flash 9. I will install Flash 10, and keep my fingers crossed. I will let you know.
Done! It works fine. I noticed during the installation that it placed a plugin file in Opera. Plugin files are not needed in either Firefox nor IE. Seamonkey, which is closely related to NS7.2 uses Flash 10. I, also, noticed that the player took a while to show up.
Good stuff, and good luck! I am listening to the last song in Seamonkey.

Mind you that, as I said before, I don't use Netscape7.2, but Seamonkey1.1.12 is its direct successor. I don't see why activeX would be required with Flash10, and, surely I am not asked for it. Looking in the plugins folder there is no npswf32.dll file, the .dll of Flash, so, presumably Flash will work directly. If I type about:plugins in the address bar, I get a list all plugins. That of Flash is the first one, and it tells me that I have:
File name: NPSWF32.dll Shockwave Flash 10.0 r12
.
I, also, have:
File name: npmozax.dll Mozilla ActiveX control and plugin module
which I have had forever, and carried on from NS7.2. But, it is supposed to work with .ocx files, and not the .swf file of Flash. The activex for IE is different from the control used for "gecko" browser, but that should not be the point.
I did not uninstall the previous Flash. I just started the installation of Flash.
