    Hi,

    Using this code to play a WMV file:

    <embed src="videos/Fondue-Hair.wmv" width="600" height="400" ></embed>

    I want the video to NOT start automatically. I want the user to press play.
    Suggestions?

    Thanks!

    <embed src="videos/Fondue-Hair.wmv" name="media player"
    controller="true" autoplay="false"
    loop="false" hidden="false" width="600px" height="400px"></embed>

    Don't use that code Search google for "wmv object" Look at the
    examples and you will see how to do it

    Be nice to users and link, don't force the loading of a mediaplayer just
    to display a UI widget: http://www.spartanicus.utvinternet.ie/embed.htm

    Take a look at the code at www.multimediaforbusiness.com. You need the embed
    tag for Netscape and the Object for IE. This video does not autostart in IE
    but does in Netscape. I would need to add a line of code to the embed
    section.
    Hope this helps.
