VISTA won't play embedded windows movie
I have a site that embeds a windows media player. It plays just fine on XP &
MAC using safari, ie 6 or 7, and firefox. But VISTA won't play it. It makes
the video look like it is on qualudes or something. It says it is downloading
and then gets all funky.

Take a look:

Any ideas why the video won't play on my VISTA machine?

Thanks for all of your help and happy holidays.

Here is a copy of the code if you need it:

<!-- BEGIN HTML FOR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER -->
<object id="MediaPlayer" width=610 height=500
classid="clsid:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6."
codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,4,7,1112"
standby="Loading Windows Media Player components..."
type="application/x-oleobject">
<param name="FileName"
value="http://seanwilson.org/lectures/conlaw1/10/h.wmv">
<param name="ShowControls" value="True">
<param name="AutoStart" value="True">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="True">
<param name="EnablePositionControls" value="True">
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2"
src="http://seanwilson.org/lectures/conlaw1/10/h.wmv"
name="MediaPlayer"
width=610
height=500
showstatusbar=1

</embed>
</object>

Re: VISTA won't play embedded windows movie

This worked fine for me on Vista/IE7. It's a 2mbps file, though, so it's
not going to play well for average users not on broadband.
