req help: code to stream video from PC to embedded media player

Threaded View
I want the embedded media player in my web page to play a file streamed from
another PC running Windows Media Encoder. I've managed
to create an embedded Windows Media Player in a web page using the following

<object width="320" height="290"
    <param name="Filename" value="video.wmv">
    <param name="AutoStart" value="False">
    <param name="ShowControls" value="True">
    <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="False">
    <param name="ShowDisplay" value="False">
    <param name="AutoRewind" value="True">
    <param name="Loop" value="True">
    <embed src="video.wmv"
width="320" height="290" autostart="False" loop="True"
showcontrols="True" showstatusbar="False"
showdisplay="False" autorewind="True"> </embed> </object>

but this code will only play the 'video.wmv' file already on the site. I would
like the embedded player to stream video from the PC
that is running Windows Media Encoder. To stream from this PC one would normally
open Windows Media Player, click File/Open Url and
type http://my.ip.address:portnumber eg: http://123.456.789.101:1234 and Windows
Media Player would pull the file from the other PC
and play it. How do I code this into my current embedded media player?

Thanks for any help.

Replace video.wmv with the URL and port for the media encoder.  But
rather than http:// use mmp://

Or use an ASX file and tell the media player where it will find the
stream in that.
