    embedded wmv file not working in all setups of FF

    Synanto MeetingPod Video

    The above appears to work well in IE6 and IE7. It's a wmv file embedded in a web page using windows media player. But in some setups of Firefox (versions 1 and 2) I'm hearing of problems. It works ok in my installations of Firefox, but those with smaller screens and smaller resolutions (only guesing here), I'm getting reports that only a quarter or half of the video is viewable within the media player.

    The relevant code is below. Any ideas?

    <OBJECT id='mediaPlayer' width="350" height="295"
    classid='CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95'
    codebase='http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701'
    standby='Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components...' type='application/x-oleobject'>
    <param name='fileName' value="http://www.synanto.com/meetingpodmovie.wmv">
    <param name='animationatStart' value='true'>
    <param name='transparentatStart' value='true'>
    <param name='autoStart' value="true">
    <param name='showControls' value="true">
    <param name='loop' value="false">
    <EMBED type='application/x-mplayer2'
    pluginspage='http://microsoft.com/windows/mediaplayer/en/download/'
    id='mediaPlayer' name='mediaPlayer' displaysize='5' autosize='-1'
    bgcolor='darkblue' showcontrols="true" showtracker='-1'
    showdisplay='0' showstatusbar='-1' videoborder3d='-1' width="415" height="350"
    src="http://www.synanto.com/meetingpodmovie.wmv" autostart="true" designtimesp='5311' loop="false">
    </EMBED>
    </OBJECT>

    Your height and width values are different for the <object> tag and the <embed> tag. Embed is for older browsers while the newer recommended tag is the object tag.
