- trying to embed video by mime type

I have a test page at
I am trying to find a way to embed the video as simply as possible
without specifying WMP or QuickTime player (or any particular plug-
in). When I used "video/quicktime", of course it called the quicktime
player, so I changed it to "video/mpeg" but this didn't seem to work
in explorer. I tried first with the quicktime plug-in, and that
worked, but when I left it with just the WMP plug-in, it didn't work,
even though WMP claims to support mpeg and h264. It didn't even show
the alt text link as it should according to spec.
Re: trying to embed video by mime type
On your page you say: "This should work, and if it doesn't a text link
should appear... theoretically at least. It doesn't in firefox3 on mac.
Does in Safari."
What doesn't in FF3? The movie or the text link?
On my Mac, on Safari, FF2 and Opera and iCab, the movie appears fine and
embedded. You need the expertise of cwdjrxyz, he is a subscriber. You
