in reply to OT: Displaying Windows Media file from database?

Make sure your mark-up works with a file before trying it with your script. I had no problems getting a script to work with this mark-up:
<object id="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=286 classid="CLSID:22D6f312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" standby="Loading Windows Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject" codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/n +smp2inf.cab#Version=6,4,7,1112"> <param name="filename" value="/cgi-bin/playwmv"> <param name="Showcontrols" value="True"> <param name="autoStart" value="True"> <embed type="application/x-mplayer2" src="/cgi-bin/playwmv" name="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=240> </embed> </object>
