Embed several Windows Media Player controls in one Word doc

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?

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

"WindowsMediaPlayer2" will be the default name of the next Media Player Control. It can be changed in the controls properties.
