microsoft expression encoder 4 not streaming to mac

I have been using Microsoft Expression encoder 4 (free version) to broadcast video from my pc webcam over the network.  It works well.  But I cannot view the video on a mac.  I receive "missing plugin" on the page I that should have the video embedded in it.    Below is the code I used to embed the video in a web page.    Has anyone else tried this before?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Probably you're trying to stream wmv content (VC1), that's not compatible with Mac computers. Stream using the H264 codec, so Macs can use Quicktime to see the video.

So far I remember, only the Pro version (Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Pro) is able to stream H264 content.
