Microsoft MediaPlayer

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I want to set up a page where there are 4 links to multimedia files.
When you click on a link an embedded Microsoft MediaPlayer will play the
file for that link. I already know how to embed the mediaplayer but
don't know how to do the links. This will override the MIME settings for
the browser.

Any help will be appreciated

Using Javascript you can run the embedded player.  Stop, start, load new
media, the whole shebang.  Search MSDN for media player properties.

people, anywhere from 7%-15% depending on who you ask.

1) Leave the choice of media player to the user, ideally by using a file
format which is not proprietary.

2) Don't embed, it won't work for a significant number of users:
