View Full Version : wmp html embed-really need some help please

08-15-2009, 04:56 AM
I simply want 2 stream on my website
i found a standard wmp in html-player inserts fine+shows on page buttons work etc +is confirmed by the sites add gadget feature.-thats all good-however...

i simply cannot play anything on it
in the player html(i looked at several) all have a section roughly sayin the same
"insert media file path or stream url here"

inbetween " & " -then delete the insert media file path or stream url here bit

infuriatingly NONE of these html players hav 1 iota of instruction
do you insert+remove "" do you put the full url?
if url is

do you insert the WHOLE url? a portion
given html can be the difference of 1 charactor between success+failure it beggars belief that there are no instructions
have posted the 2 i tried below-thanks in advancve if anyone can help me,cheers

1st one was this [code]
<OBJECT id="VIDEO" width="320" height="240"
style="position:absolute; left:0;top:0;"
