i am actually using 'iframes' if that helps. I'll post the url up so you can see what i;m trying to achieve.
basically if you click 'life as a man' link (none of the others work) it starts playing the video in the iframe ID'd "video". I am trying to get the buttons below to control the player (i will replace them for my custom ones when it is working). currently i;m only interested in IE browsers tho will include netscape 6 at a later date. Hope that helps.
If you click the monkey see link it writes monkey do into the iframe ID'd "video". therefore i assume that it is the actual reference to the object of the player that doesn't work
