J7N is an unknown quantity at this point

BSPlayer is a graphical frontend to DirectShow. It is far from a web browser add-on. For starters, BSPlayer does not have a decoder for Mp3 or any other format (except some obscure Vorbis decoder which nobody uses).

On the server side: To decode a file format in your web browser you'll need a decoder and some lightweight user interface for it. The interface might mimick BSplayer v1 or v2, like many skins already do for other software. But you don't need BS development team to do that.

If anybody actually attempted to somehow embed BSPlayer into other software on the client side, we would end up with very unstable product that would highly depend on proper installation and work only with certain web browser versions.
