As of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Internet Explorer 7, the mediaBar feature is obsolete and no longer available.

enabled was introduced in Internet Explorer 6.

Setting this property to false does not change or update the appearance of the player controls. No visual cue appears for the user in the UI.

Because the mediaBar behavior is an implementation of the Microsoft Windows Media Player, some Media Bar members are essentially the same as those used by the Windows Media Player 7 and Windows Media Player 8, notably the onopenstatechange and onplaystatechange events, and the openState, playState, and enabled properties. For more information about the Windows Media Player object model, see the Player object reference and the Windows Media Player SDK.
