I shouldn't think this such a problem, did you try the obvious? That would be to make a page with your object/embed code on it. Call the page say - mediawin.htm, then for your iframe:

<iframe src="mediawin.htm"></iframe>

no, i didnt try the obvious (so like me!!) but i see what it is going to do, but i have several links that all open pages up in the same iframe, so will what you say above still work?

Sure, you can target the iframe from the top page, give the iframe a name:

<iframe name="mwin" src="mediawin.htm"></iframe>

Then links on the top page could be like:

<a href="mediawin2.htm" target="mwin">Content Two's Description</a>

the trouble im having now is that i have 17 different videos i want to play within that iframe, all 17 have their own links on the main page. so, for example i click on one of my other links (about us etc) these pages open in the iframe. then i chose to open up media item 15 say, how do i get that to open in that iframe?

Put it on its own page and use the method from my previous post.
