Having trouble embedding wmv files in my website. I am currently running dreamweaver 4.. Do the usual thing insert===media---plugin---. Then when I try to play the movie I receive an error that states " Unable to find the plugin for this media type."

Exactly.. you need to have a plugin for what you are trying to install.
Why use WMV anyway? You would be best to use quicktime as that is more than likely what most have installed as far as a plug is concerned.
Windows Media Video files are slow at streaming and the end file is huge.

That's MS for you.

But seriously, try and load the file into a browser out side of DW and also remove the plug from DW.
I would seriously consider quicktime.
