    Try this
    Code:
    <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>

    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
