Webpage: Default static image on unplayed windows media video?


please visit this page using Internet Explorer.  How do I get a default picture to show up on the blank screen?

my code:
    document.write('<object id="MediaPlayer1" CLASSID="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,4,5,715" border="0" standby="Loading Windows Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject" width="509" height="375"><param name="fileName" value="http://www.theravive.com/temp/theravive-second.wmv"><param name="ShowStatusBar" value="1" /><param name="animationatStart" value="1" /><param name="transparentatStart" value="0" /><param name="ShowAudioControls" value="1" /><param name="AllowScan" value="1" /><param name="ShowPositionControls" value="1" /><param name="showControls" value="1" /><param name="autoStart" value="0" /><param name="Volume" value="-0"> </object>')

<SCRIPT type="text/javascript">
