Try this

<object type="application/x-mplayer2" width="686" height="686" data="videos/swk/starwars_kid.wmv">
<param name="src" value="videos/swk/starwars_kid.wmv">
<param name="filename" value="videos/swk/starwars_kid.wmv">
<param name="type" value="application/x-mplayer2">
If you are seeing this your system cannot find the windows media player that was specified.
</object>

still doesnt work :( ... although it could just be my firefox... can one of you have a look and see if it opens in your firefox browser? alanmonger.co.uk (http://www.alanmonger.co.uk/video.php?video=videos/swk/starwars_kid.wmv&type=wmv)

Ok, i think i see where i went wrong... but i dont know why i am....

What i was doing, was changing the link so i was able to link to the video i could store it within php, having the link be videos/swk/swk.wmv , instead of the full link... which stopped it working...

Cheers for your help. Its all good now
