I tried this, doesn't work...
It shows up not in the separate window, but on the left side of the window....
Something to do with the settings of the machine.

THe embed code is:
<embed src="../Media/Videos/test.wmv" width="338" height="300"></embed>

the javascript is:

<script language="javascript1.2" type="text/javascript">
function setFilePath(fileurl)  {
var player=document.getElementById("mediaplayer");
player.URL=fileurl;
player.controls.play();
}

Let me know...

You should use a combination of <object> and <embed> tags to reach a broader audience.

Here are two easy links you should read:

Did you want to embed it or just create a link to stream it?
If it's for streaming then you'd need to create a .asx playlist file.
