Rhapsody.com is the online version of Rhapsody, providing access to basic playback and playlist capabilities from a web browser (non-IE).
install works perfect -- When I went to log in at the site with the Windows version of FireFox 2.0.x under Wine it prompted me to install the plug-in. It provided a ".msi" installer file to download, which installed perfectly
Playing files works perfectly, with even less lag, skipping, glitching, and crashing than the (under-maintained) Linux version of the plug-in. Processor load is also surprisingly lower than the Linux version of the plugin. (This is very similar to behavior of the Linux Flash plug-in.)
I highly recommend installing faster-fox for your Windows version of FireFox or otherwise adjusting your http-socket settings on FireFox as otherwise the large number of graphics will slow down your browser.
What does not
I could not find any issues
What was not tested
Playlist functions -- These are not technically related to the plugin. I just didn't have time to test them yet.
As a note, the site is difficult to view without flash player. I also recommend blocking 3rd party cookies from ad companies known to violate advertising sites' privacy policies.
Works perfect, possible even better than on Windows.
