You set it with the param command in conjunction with the object.  Here's an example in javascript from;en-us;279022 (note the width & height):

<title>Embedding Windows Media Player</title>

<!-- Check Media Player Version -->


var WMP7;

if ( navigator.appName != "Netscape" ){  
     WMP7 = new ActiveXObject('WMPlayer.OCX');

// Windows Media Player 7 Code
if ( WMP7 )
     document.write ('<OBJECT ID=MediaPlayer ');
     document.write (' CLASSID=CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6');
     document.write (' standby="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..."');
     document.write (' TYPE="application/x-oleobject" width="286" height="225">');
     document.write ('<PARAM NAME="url" VALUE="http://ncnetshow/station1.asx">');
     document.write ('<PARAM NAME="AutoStart" VALUE="true">');
     document.write ('<PARAM NAME="ShowControls" VALUE="1">');
     document.write ('<PARAM NAME="uiMode" VALUE="mini">');
     document.write ('</OBJECT>');
