Windblows Media Player

edited April 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
OK so I have a .wmv movie embedded in a discussion, on my Mac it plays in place, as I expect and as it should.

However, on a PC in both IE and Safari, it plays externally in Windows Media Player.

Where is the setting to tell it to play in the discussion? I don't want it to launch the player.

    Tools->Internet Options, advanced tab. Scroll 2/3rds way down, multimedia section. 'Play animations in webpages' Don't know if it will work or not. I play all my media in Ubuntu.

    post the code as to how exactly you're embedding it.

    <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=",4,7,1112"> <param name="filename" value=""> <param name="Showcontrols" value="True"> <param name="autoStart" value="True"> <embed type="application/x-mplayer2" src="" name="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=240></embed> </object>

    don't know if it matters, but you have your width/height in there twice, and the height is different in each.

    Yes, once for the player and the other for the movie within it.
    Doesn't make any difference, still plays in an external player, will check it again when I get back on my Mac.

    In any case, I am going to convert the .wmv to a .mov first chance I get.
