View Full Version : Live Music Control

04-19-2005, 01:43 AM
Hello All,

Long time no see :D

Okay right now I can control WMP with the following codes (in IE)



Now when I run this code in Firefox It won't work. So I decided to try and use netscape type code.


These codes do not work.

Does ANYONE know what codes that will work in FIREFOX, because this is driving me crazy!

Thanks for any help provided! :thumbsup:

Okay I am using this code:

I recieve this error:
Error: document.getElementById("player").Stop is not a function
Source File: file:///C:/AC/CustomScripts/charlotte/templates/playtime_controls.html
Line: 5

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

I've never tried to control the wmp control using javascript frankly because I haven't found or heard of any javascript that was able to, but if you gave us a link that we could work with, we might be able to figure something out.

Apparently, this requires the "The Gecko ActiveX Component", according to the following article: The Windows Media ActiveX Control Not Just for Internet Explorer Anymore (http://www.streamingmedia.com/r/printerfriendly.asp?id=8584)

Okay this makes sense now, I do not have activeX controls installed for firefox.

I located this page:

Now I know this is a stupid question, but what version should I download.

I looked at the "about Firefox" display and it says FireFox 1.0.2.

Thanks for all the help! :thumbsup:

Their plugins are outdated, it says the firefox 1.0 version doesn't work for any other version of FF, but FF is up to 1.0.3 it might work so I guess you can give it a try.

Hmm, well that doesn't seem to do the trick.

This is weird, when I go to say live365.com their radio does not play either, it justs asks me to download the .js scripts.

So I think its just me, but if other users "just" download firefox they will have the same issue.

This is the code I have now:

<EMBED type='application/x-mplayer2' pluginspage='http://microsoft.com/windows/mediaplayer/en/download/' name='player' id='player' displaysize='0' autosize='-1' bgcolor='darkblue' showcontrols="false" showtracker='-1' showdisplay='0' showstatusbar='-1' videoborder3d='-1' width="0" height="0" src="LINK" autostart="true" designtimesp='5311' loop="false" enablejavascript="true">

and for javascript:

function stop_player(){

Any ideas?

it seems that stop is only a function in IE

It works in netscape. So I guess Firefox just doesn't work with these functions yet.

Oh well, thanks everyone for the help I truly appreciate it! :thumbsup:
