    I have a site that embeds a windows media player. It plays just fine on XP &
    MAC using safari, ie 6 or 7, and firefox. But VISTA won't play it. It makes
    the video look like it is on qualudes or something. It says it is downloading
    and then gets all funky.

    Take a look:

    Any ideas why the video won't play on my VISTA machine?

    [NOTE: I posted this already, but I am not able to reply to the comments.
    One person said that the video did play on his vista machine. However, I have
    tested it now on THREE different machines. I have yet to find a vista machine
    that will play an embedded wmv. What would cause this?]

    Thanks for all of your help and happy holidays.

    Here is a copy of the code if you need it:

    <!-- BEGIN HTML FOR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER -->
    <object id="MediaPlayer" width=610 height=500
    classid="clsid:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6."
    codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,4,7,1112"
    standby="Loading Windows Media Player components..."
    type="application/x-oleobject">
    <param name="FileName"
    value="http://seanwilson.org/lectures/conlaw1/10/h.wmv">
    <param name="ShowControls" value="True">
    <param name="AutoStart" value="True">
    <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="True">
    <param name="EnablePositionControls" value="True">
    <embed type="application/x-mplayer2"
    src="http://seanwilson.org/lectures/conlaw1/10/h.wmv"
    name="MediaPlayer"
    width=610
    height=500
    showstatusbar=1
    enablepositioncontrols=1>
    </embed>
    </object>

    You previously posted this and I previously posted that it works fine on my
    Vista system.

    This indicates that something is probably wrong on your specific Vista
    system.
