I use Windows Media Player 11 to put WMV format video's on my site (e.g. http://www.pmm.nl/basics/PMM%20basics.htm). It would be nice if viewers could scroll to a specific moment of the video for instruction and help. However, there seems to be no way to get a timer control from the player or added to it. Does anyone know if this is possible and if yes, how? I use FrontPage to create the site.

I have not tried it yet but I assume you are right, Pjasnos. I have a little trouble with creating the inline Javascript for I know how easily this can generate serious errors, not knowing Java, from experiences in the past.

Ok, here are samples that don't use JavaScript (but won't work for Firefox for a change):

These should work for any media file that wmp can render; pay attention to the uiMode parameter.
