Embed several Windows Media Player controls in one Word doc

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-07
How must I modify the attached code to make it work for 2 embedded players? I think the players must be assigned names to which the code can refer but I don't know if "WindowsMediaPlayer1" may be renamed... Perhaps with a tag or a label?

Private Sub Document_Open()
Dim strName As String
strName = strPATHNAME & "all.wmv"  'your file name
WindowsMediaPlayer1.windowlessVideo = True
WindowsMediaPlayer1.settings.autoStart = False   'stop it from automatically starting on load
WindowsMediaPlayer1.URL = strName   'add the path to your file
WindowsMediaPlayer1.settings.volume = 100      'here you can change initial volume
WindowsMediaPlayer1.settings.setMode "loop", False     'stop it from looping
End Sub
