For people having problems...

...here's a page I whipped up so all you have do is drag the link to your bookmarks bar:

Sadly, after further testing, it seems this doesn't work in Firefox. Sorry for getting your hopes up FF users. Although the links are rewritten properly, Firefox doesn't seem to be able to play "raw" WMV streams (application/x-mplayer2), even though it is clear that Firefox sees the file by reporting the correct file type in the window title. If it's any consolation, Firefox in Windows has the exact same behavior with this bookmarklet.
