embedded players change on link click

On my web page I have an embedded plugin with links in a div. Depending on the media type clicking on the link opens the needed plugin in the same embed. It has windows media, real player, quick time and flash plugin. The problem is with the flash. If I put a link to a flash file the no matter what flash link I select it opens the link to the flash in the code bellow. I need a solution that when I click on a flash link it will play the link in the div in the html.
I think there is a small problem with the real player part too.
Here is the code:

// JavaScript Document

function cDisc(ob,tn){

function mPlay(stream,player){
            var PlayerDiv=document.getElementById("mPlayer");

// document.all.mPlayer.innerHTML = "";

      if (player=="wm"){
            PlayerDiv.innerHTML = "<object classid='CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6' type='application/x-mplayer2' width='400' height='300' id='WMP' ><param name='enableContextMenu' value='0'/><param name='autoplay' value='true'/><param name='SendPlayStateChangeEvents' value='true'/><param name='url' value='"+stream+"'/><embed src='"+stream+"' width='400' height='300' autostart='1' autoplay='1' align='middle' type='application/x-mplayer2' pluginspage='http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/Downloads/Contents/MediaPlayer/' showcontrols='1' showstatusbar='0' showdisplay='0' autorewind='0' enablecontextmenu='0' border='0'></embed></object>";

            document.title = "FAMILY JANUSEVI MEDIA";
if (player=="rp"){
            PlayerDiv.innerHTML = "<OBJECT ID='RMP' CLASSID='clsid:CFCDAA03-8BE4-11cf-B84B-0020AFBBCCFA' WIDTH='400' HEIGHT='300' ><PARAM NAME='SRC' VALUE='http://5fm.com.mk:8011/listen.pls' /><PARAM NAME='CONSOLE' VALUE='_unique' /><PARAM NAME='CONTROLS' VALUE='ImageWindow,ControlPanel,StatusBar' /><PARAM NAME='CENTER' VALUE='true' /><embed src='' width='400'height='300' console='_unique' controls='ImageWindow,ControlPanel,StatusBar' center='true' name='RMP'></embed></OBJECT>";
            document.title = "FAMILY JANUSEVI MEDIA";
if (player=="qt"){
            PlayerDiv.innerHTML = "<object classid='clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B' codebase='http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab' width='400' height='300' id='QTP'><param name='src' value=''/><param name='autoplay' value='true'><param name='CONTROLLER' VALUE='true'><param name='SCALE' VALUE='tofit'><param name='pluginspage' value='http://www.apple.com/QuickTime/download/' /><embed src='' width='400' height='300' autoplay='true' controller='true' scale='tofit' pluginspage='http://www.apple.com/QuickTime/download/'></embed></object>";
            document.title = "FAMILY JANUSEVI MEDIA";
      if (player=="swf"){

      PlayerDiv.innerHTML = "<OBJECT classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000'codebase='http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0'WIDTH='400' HEIGHT='300' id='myMovieName'><PARAM NAME='movie' VALUE='& url &'><param name='allowScriptAccess' value='always'><PARAM NAME='quality' VALUE='High'><EMBED SRC='& url &' allowScriptAccess='always'quality=High WIDTH='400' HEIGHT='300'NAME='myMovieName' TYPE='application/x-shockwave-flash'PLUGINSPAGE='http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer'</EMBED></OBJECT>";
      document.title = "FAMILY JANUSEVI MEDIA";
      if (player=="nw"){
            document.title = "Opening New Window (Stream Website) for nw stream in new window";

You only use +stream+ in the MediaPlayer

You need to change



in the rp code and

<PARAM NAME='movie' VALUE='& url &'>


SRC='& url &'


<PARAM NAME='movie' VALUE='"+stream+"'>


in the Flash code

in the qt you need to change

<param name='src' value=''/>

<embed src='' width='400'

<param name='src' value='"+stream+"'/>

<embed src='"+stream+"' width='400'

Hi mplungjan
I have a related question.
I am trying to make the flash movie to autostart.
<PARAM NAME='movie' VALUE='"+stream+"&autoplay=1'>
<EMBED SRC='"+stream+"&autoplay=1'
also tried
<PARAM NAME='movie' VALUE='"+stream+"&autoplay=1'>
<EMBED SRC='"+stream+"&autoplay=1'
I tried also true for the 1 with no luck.
I feel I am very close.
Can you help on this one.

Yes, you are mixing the name of the file into the options for the plugin


 PlayerDiv.innerHTML = "<OBJECT classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000'codebase='http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0'WIDTH='400' HEIGHT='300' id='myMovieName'><PARAM NAME='movie' VALUE='"+stream+"'><param name='allowScriptAccess' value='always'><PARAM NAME='quality' VALUE='High'>
<PARAM NAME='autoplay' VALUE='true'><EMBED SRC='"+stream+"' allowScriptAccess='always'quality=High WIDTH='400' HEIGHT='300'NAME='myMovieName' TYPE='application/x-shockwave-flash'PLUGINSPAGE='http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer' autoplay='true'></EMBED></OBJECT>";
