View Full Version : help with displaying a wmp video

I'm doing a redux of a site at school and I need to put up a video on the site for the 'client'.

here is my code:

<object classid="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" width="320" height="290" align="middle" id="mediaplayer1" name="mediaplayer1" title="Condo tour">
<param name="FileName" value="videoTour.avi" />
<param name="AutoStart" value="False" />
<param name="ShowControls" value="True" />
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="False" />
<param name="ShowDisplay" value="False" />
<param name="AutoRewind" value="True" />
<embed src="../videoTour.avi" type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" width="320" height="290" autostart="False" align="middle" filename="videoTour.avi" showcontrols="True" showstatusbar="False" showdisplay="False" autorewind="True"></embed>

the problem is not that the media player doesn't show, but that it won't play the video.

hey never mind the code was fine, you just need to have the video in the same folder as the page calling it:D

This may not be an issue because of your "client" but you should be wary of embedding for cross-browser compatibility.

You can see this site (http://joliclic.free.fr/html/object-tag/en/object-audio.html) for more information and compatibility work arounds for various file types.
