Embedding windows media player - Windows 7, Mac, Firefox

I have had embedded windows media player in my pages, but now people are saying they cannot read it, even with Active X installed.  What are the latest codes to use for Windows XP, Windows 7, Firefox and Macintosh to make sure embedded Windows player items work properly?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello,

I think people would appreciate a little more info on this matter.
How are you embedding the player at the moment?

I think you should provide either the code, or a link to the site this is about.
