View Full Version : need help with windows media player streaming in html

Ok, I'm hoping someone can help with a Microsoft Windows Media Player issue.

I am trying to have a small video clip play on a web page when the page loads. I have accomplished it in Internet Explorer the way I want. The clip plays with no control buttons around it. Meaning the clip plays but there is no Play/Pause, Forward, Back buttons, just the clip.

However, I cannot get the same results with Netscape. The clip plays but the control bar is there with all the buttons.

I have been to Microsoft's site and read and read and I am stuck.

This is the code I have for both IE and netscape:

<OBJECT id="VIDEO" width="150" height="100"

<PARAM name="URL" value="http://www.kazoo11.com/wmv/<%=(RS("FilePath"))%>.wvx">

<PARAM NAME="AutoStart" VALUE="True">
<PARAM name="uiMode" value="none">

<EMBED TYPE="application/x-mplayer2"

The problem in the code occurs within the EMBED tags - that is where the Netscape code is used.

If anybody knows what additional code needs to be added in the EMBED tags to elimate the control buttons or any of the exisiting code needs changing, please pass on your knowledge.

If you would like to view what I am talking about and have both IE and a Netscape browser, go to www.kazoo11.com (http://www.kazoo11.com)

Perhaps setting the width & height to "0" would work...
