Ever wanted to have a .wmv file play automatically when a user visits your website? This is how you'd do it. Each embedded player instance on your Web page needs the object definition to clarify which version of the Windows Media Player will be called. This is identified by both the CLSID reference and the CODEBASE definition.
Here's the code to embed a Windows Media File into an HTML page:
<object id="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=286 classid="CLSID:22D6f312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" standby="Loading Windows Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject" codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,4,7,1112"> <param name="filename" value="http://yourdomain/yourmovie.wmv"> <param name="Showcontrols" value="True"> <param name="autoStart" value="True"> <embed type="application/x-mplayer2" src="http://media.pmcmovies.com/SixtiesLove.wmv" name="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=240></embed> </object>
