Frontpage 2002-activemovie-sound plays but no video- help

I am trying to include streaming video into one of my web pages.  I have added the Activemovie control to the page, then I converted the video to .wmv and palced a .wvx tag inside of my html code.  When I post the page or even preview it, the player begins to play the file.  The sound plays and the status bar moves, but there is no video.  If I set its height manually, the windows media player animation plays throughout the length of the video.  If I don't set the height, the video screen disappears when the video begins to play.  I have gone in and changed all sorts of parameter settings.  Nothing works.  Please help.

You can try using this code:
<OBJECT ID="MediaPlayer1" width=350 height=250

classid="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"

codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,4,5,715"

standby="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..."

type="application/x-oleobject">

<PARAM NAME="FileName" VALUE="405.wmv">
<PARAM NAME="animationatStart" VALUE="true">
<PARAM NAME="transparentatStart" VALUE="true">
<PARAM NAME="autoStart" VALUE="true">
<PARAM NAME="showControls" VALUE="true">
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" SRC="405.wmv" name="MediaPlayer1" width="350" height="250" AutoStart="true"></OBJECT>

(Make sure you change the source in both places.)

I have implemented your code.  Unfortunately, it still does the same thing.  The sound plays fine, but the only thing playing on the video screen is the "windows media" animation.  I just need to know how to make video appear in the window of the player.  I assumed it would appear by default, but this is not the case.  I know that the .wmv file contains video info since it plays on my computer when I run it from the C:\ drive and also when I make it available for download from the page itself.  If you have any idea why it plays the sound without video please help.  I have tried changing the "widowlessvideo" parameter.  Thanks.

Above, I meant to specify that it only cuts out the video window when it is embedded.

Are you still having a problem with this?  If so - could you provide the URL?
