[icecast] Vorbis streams on Windows Media Player

I was under the impression that Tobias's Direct Show filters would allow
Windows Media player to play Ogg Vorbis streams, but after testing it
here, apparently it doesn't.  Does anyone know if there is anyway of
making WMP play vorbis streams?

The company I'm involved with who will be creating thousands of internet
stations will most likely need WMP to play the streams, since it is the
most used player software.  I know most of you are
anti-Microsoft/Windows, as I am, but this really needs to happen as soon
as possible if Ogg Vorbis is going to become mainstream.  Perhaps Xiph
needs to employ someone to do it if there are no volunteers.
