1 In Safari, I don't see or hear anything. Instead, clicking on the link downloads a "webm" file. In Chrome — Dick Dale, Homura and I all expect an apology. At least there's no "harem" ending.

IE-11, I get asked if I want to download a file.

Firefox 34.0.5, I get a screen load of garbage.

3 Firefox 37.0.2, junk characters.

4 Chrome, duplicate of Don's findings there *in the Chrome tab*.  
IE 11 for me directly opened media player with the same file.
No harems were harmed, or shown, in these tests.

5 I should mention that I don't have WMP installed on my system because it was causing me a lot of trouble. I don't know what a ".webm" file is, and apparently nothing on my computer does either.

6 Chrome mobile; I get a prompt to open a media file with either Chrome or VLC.  Open with Chrome and I get a streaming Madoka AMV that uses Misirlou and ends on pocky.

7 Thanks to everyone who participated. Apologies to Don, Dick Dale and Homura. 
.WebM is interesting, but it looks like the support isn't really there yet. 
Kind of like .APNG

IIRC, Microsoft has said they aren't planning on adding support for it in the browser, so it probably isn't ever actually going to get there.  (You supposedly can make them work with an extension from Google, but I'm too lazy to try it out.)

9 Also--ugh, sorry for hosing up that comment.  I did a copy and paste out of your post, and I guess the editor took the link.  I meant to just put in text.

Oh! Now this is interesting! The comment looks fine to me in Epic. Chrome, Opera and Safari. What are you seeing and what are you seeing it in?

11 In both Chrome and IE, the wiki link survived--I didn't just wind up copying plain text.  I didn't realize it until I hit Post, and I was afraid it would cause the kind of ugly bare link that Wonderduck hates.

12 (and, just in case you don't like them either, I wanted not to do it.  I forgot that sometimes browsers copy+paste more than just plain text.)
