           Summary: sign cortado applet so that it works for people with
                    outdated java
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: ops
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: TimedMediaHandler
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

So I was testing timedmediahandler on computers at my university (I figure they
represent a fairly common config).

*I hit play button on an audio file
*Goes to java cortado fallback as it should
*Prompt comes up saying my java is out-dated
*I click continue anyways
*Pop up says applet is blocked by your security settings (My security setting
is "high" which is the default. Apparently this blocks all unsigned java
applets when you need an upgrade.

There's probably a good portion of our user base using old java. Signing the
applet should get around this. There's a signed version at, in my experiments, the copy of IE I did the test
on successfully loaded this version (After a are you sure prompt).

We could potentially just use this signed version, however it would probably be
ideal if instead Wikimedia signed the applet we serve, as then the publisher
would be listed as "Wikimedia", so people would be more likely to trust it vs a
publisher as some random person.
