    Question embedded media player object

    I've embedded a windows media player object on a webpage but it has an ugly uneven black border around 3 sides. The problem doesn't seem to be the html tags and I can't seem to fix it with <img src... border=0>. I tried embedding it using <embed> and <object> tags, same problem with both.

    Please help, this is urgent and I need to fix it today.

    sorry it's not on the www, it's on a network so I can't post a link

    isn't there anything I can do to remove object borders?

    There probably isn't anything that can be done.

    You could possibly place it inside of a <div> tag that is the same height/width as your media object. At least give it a try.

    pyro, that would not work. You couldn't cover up the object because it is not an HTML element.

    thanks anyway

    seeing as it's to do with the windows media player plugin, isn't there some way I can adjust how the plugin displays?

    The <object> is a replaced element and can accommodate plugins however when we are talking about specific players, like QuickTime, or Media Player you tend to use the <param> element with proprietary attributes for example: <param name="DisplaySize" value="4"> concerning the prefered plugin in question.

    I presume you have given the <object> container a width and height dimension, and mime type to work from.

    With embedding video and audio the <param> attributes vary quite a lot you'd have to visit Microsoft to get the specific display attributes for their player control panel displays.
