Any stats on this?

Wanna use VC1 video and I'm interested in the figures we can expect from an average website audience, how many of 'em have WMP 11.

Wish Google Analytics scoped this, the Flash stats are gold.

You might consider using h.264 instead - the quality is the same as VC1 but you can play back via flash (latest versions) which means the bounce rate will be a lot lower if you're embedding the content, as I don't imagine wmp 11 has nearly as high as an adoption rate. You can also stream over rtmp if necessary to protect the content, plus h.264 can be provided as a download too (quicktime will play it)
