Embedding WMP on my web site
« on: February 22, 2005, 01:37:49 am »
As does happen more often that not when you're developing a web page, things that work on your development platform don't always work in the real world (uhg, did I just call the Net the real world?). I've been fiddling with embedding Window's Media Players on my web site. I hope that it works, but in need of a little feedback.

Can you guys hit my page and let me know if the player plays the vid? Thanks all for your feedback.

Just looked, and If It's supposed to be to the Left of the Recipe King, all I got at the Bottom of a blank space was the cookie has been Wriiten

Cool and thanks. I thought it might be a Firefox issue.

Btw, how'd you like the vid?

DOh! , I never even thought to use IE. It seems everytime I use IE, I get some Problems. I can hardly wait though for IE 7.0

This tutorial might help?:
http://www.wdvl.com/Multimedia/Windows_Media/index3.html
(says it works for IE and Nestscape)

Sounds like an issue I had with embedding sound files:
<bgsound src='Web_Music_40-5.WAV' autostart='true'>  // Works for IE
<embed src='Web_Music_40-5.WAV' autostart='true'> // Works for Mozilla
... but something funky was happening if I put both lines in... I couldn't be bothered to use a javscript browser detection cuz nobody has javascript enabled anymore (at least they say they don't)... so its virtually useless, one must design for IE or Mozilla, one or the other... or do it all with serverside scripts (php, asp etc..) that detect the browser before sending output...

I'm not sure that tut is valid anymore. When I get some time I'll run some tests on it and see how it goes.
