Below is an example of using a MPG in a html page with all relevant params:
 <OBJECT id=WindowsMediaPlayer1 width=320 height=264 hspace=5 

            vspace=5 classid=clsid:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6 border="5" align="middle">

              <param name="URL" value="jogi.mpg" ref>

              <param name="rate" value="1">

              <param name="balance" value="0">

              <param name="currentPosition" value="0">

              <param name="defaultFrame" value>

              <param name="playCount" value="1">

              <param name="autoStart" value="-1">

              <param name="currentMarker" value="0">

>>cross browser and cross platform?

try customize this example that using M$ Media Player....

tested working in IE6/7 and FF3.



<SCRIPT type="text/javascript">

    function createMediaPlayer(id, width, height, url, autostart, playcount, showdisplay, showstatusbar) {
      if(-1 != navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE"))
      {
        document.write('<OBJECT id="'+id+'"');
        document.write(' classid="clsid:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6"');
        document.write(' width='+width+' height='+height+'>');
        document.write(' <param name="URL" value="'+url+'">');
            document.write(' <param name="AutoStart" value="'+autostart+'">');
            document.write(' <param name="PlayCount" value="'+playcount+'">');
            document.write(' <param name="ShowDisplay" value="'+showdisplay+'">');
            document.write(' <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="'+showstatusbar+'">');
        document.write('</OBJECT>');
      }
      else if(-1 != navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Firefox"))
      {
        document.write('<OBJECT id="'+id+'"');
        document.write(' type="application/x-ms-wmp"');
        document.write(' width='+width+' height='+height+'>');
        document.write(' <param name="URL" value="'+url+'">');
        document.write(' <param name="AutoStart" value="'+autostart+'">');
        document.write(' <param name="PlayCount" value="'+playcount+'">');
        document.write(' <param name="ShowDisplay" value="'+showdisplay+'">');
        document.write(' <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="'+showstatusbar+'">');
        document.write('</OBJECT>');
      }
    }

    </SCRIPT>


then:

<script language="javascript">
          createMediaPlayer("media1", 480, 320, "mms://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/myChannel/Content/Users/blabla/media/myvideo.mpg", 0, 1, 1, 0);
    </script>



hope this helps too.

I'm running into the same problem with all of these example. Firefox works fine. In IE the page loads forever and never loads. This is not something the client wants to put on youtube, so that is not an option. I need to be able to play the mpg file and have controls and it needs to work in all browsers.

Using the quicktime plugin is the option I would go for as this is something that many people already have installed. Windows Media player is not an option.

Like I said, I can get this to work in FF but I get nothing in IE

This is what I ended up using in the end. Not completely what I was looking for, but it works and this needed to be done in a hurry.



<object id="Video1" type="application/x-mplayer2" width="320" height="320">

	<param name="fileName" value="images/video.mpg">

	<param name="autoStart" value="false">

	<param name="showControls" value="true">

	<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" src="images/video.mpg" name="Video1" autostart="false" showcontrols="true" 

					width="320" height="320">

</object>
