Delete Windows Media Player instance from webpage?

have a windows media object in a locally loaded page using  the code below.

When i replace it with an image, it takes 7+ seconds to happen using the destroyWMV function (using jquery at the mo) below.

How can I make this much faster?

It is for internet explorer only.


<OBJECT  id="visualisationMedia" classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"  height="100%" type=application/x-oleobject  width="100%" STANDBY="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..."><PARAM NAME="AudioStream" VALUE="1"><PARAM NAME="AutoStart" VALUE="1"><PARAM NAME="BufferingTime" VALUE="5"><PARAM NAME="DefaultFrame" VALUE=""><PARAM NAME="DisplayForeColor" VALUE="16777215"><PARAM NAME="DisplayMode" VALUE="0"><PARAM NAME="DisplaySize" VALUE="4"><PARAM NAME="Enabled" VALUE="1"><PARAM NAME="EnableContextMenu" VALUE="0"><PARAM NAME="EnableFullScreenControls" VALUE="1"><PARAM NAME="Filename" VALUE="video/'+'"><PARAM NAME="ShowControls" VALUE="1"><PARAM NAME="ShowAudioControls" VALUE="1"><PARAM NAME="Volume" VALUE="-600"></OBJECT>

function destroyWMV(){
	if (lastitem == "wmv"){
		$('#visualisationMedia').html('<img src="img/blank.gif" />');
		lastitem = "img";
