This is the code that is in an html page that I inherited.  It takes a video created in ms producer for powerpoint 2003 and plays it in media player.

            <!-- ---------------- MEDIA PLAYER  --------------------------------- -->
            <div id=LeftSideBackground style="position:absolute;display:none;WMPrerollDisplay:none">
                  <div id=MediaPlayerDiv>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">             
<!--
if (ClientCaps & Browser_SupportsNavigateCSS)
      MediaPlayer_Create();
-->
</SCRIPT>                  
                        <div id=MediaPlayerControlsDiv style="position:relative">
                              <!-- MediaPlayer buttons -->

                              <div id=PlayerBL class=PlayerBL></div>
                              <div id=PlayerBC class=PlayerBC></div>
                              <div id=PlayerBR class=PlayerBR></div>
                              <a id=PlayerPlayPause OnMouseOver="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOver(this)"; OnMouseOut="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOut(this)"; OnMouseDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnMouseUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" OnKeyDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnKeyUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" TABINDEX=2 ></a>
                              <a id=PlayerPrevious OnMouseOver="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOver(this)"; OnMouseOut="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOut(this)"; OnMouseDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnMouseUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" OnKeyDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnKeyUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" TABINDEX=2 WMEnabled=0></a>
                              <a id=PlayerNext OnMouseOver="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOver(this)"; OnMouseOut="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOut(this)"; OnMouseDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnMouseUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" OnKeyDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnKeyUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" TABINDEX=2 WMEnabled=0></a>
                              <a id=PlayerDiscussion style="visibility:hidden" OnMouseOver="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOver(this)"; OnMouseOut="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOut(this)"; OnMouseDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnMouseUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" OnKeyDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnKeyUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" TABINDEX=2></a>
                              <a id=PlayerSkipBack OnMouseOver="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOver(this)"; OnMouseOut="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOut(this)"; OnMouseDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnMouseUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" OnKeyDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnKeyUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" TABINDEX=2 WMEnabled=0></a>
                              <a id=PlayerSkipForward OnMouseOver="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOver(this)"; OnMouseOut="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOut(this)"; OnMouseDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnMouseUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" OnKeyDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnKeyUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" TABINDEX=2 WMEnabled=0></a>
                              <a id=PlayerVolume OnMouseOver="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOver(this)"; OnMouseOut="MediaPlayer_ButtonRollOut(this)"; OnMouseDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnMouseUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" OnKeyDown="MediaPlayer_OnMouseDown(this)" OnKeyUp="MediaPlayer_OnMouseUp(this)" TABINDEX=2 WMEnabled=0></a>
                              <div id=PlayerClock NOWRAP style="visibility:hidden"></div>
                        </div>
                  </div>





I want to be able to tell when the movie ends and write some javascript to do something at that point.

Thanks!

If you knew how long the video was, you could use a timer to load a function...

Great idea.  Except there are going to be lots of different videos added by a non-techie who probably will not have a clue on the duration.  That would be an excellent way of handling it....If only ;-)

hmm

The only other way I can think of doing it is writing your own flash thing that loads up the video and tells the page to execute some JS when its done... that would work.
