    Embedding Problems with Firefox.

    I have a problem. I have embedded a file onto my webpage, and I don't want it to autostart. It works fine with IE exploer, but when I try it with firefox, it starts playing. I don't understand why it is still auto playing. Will someone look at the source code of www.newvisionrealestate.net, and tell me what to do, if it's in the code at all. THANKS!!!!

    Re: Embedding Problems with Firefox.

    In the <embed> attributes, change the autostart value to 0, i.e.:

    Change
    <embed src="123456.wmv" width="250" height="250" autostart="false"

    to
    <embed src="123456.wmv" width="250" height="250" autostart="0"

    Re: Embedding Problems with Firefox.

    Hey thanks, Dave. I was racking my brain! And it seemed no one else was able to answer that. Appreciate it.

    By the way, is there a way to change the look of the player in FF? I can do it using a piece of code for IE, but not FF.

    Thanks!!!

    OMG,
    Thank you so much Dave, you are a life saver. I had no idea it was that simple. Seriously, you are like superman to me right now. lol. I am not a member of the site, I just had the same problem and did a google search, nothing came up, everyone else said I had to use <object> but that was way too hard. If you would like to contact me, my email is keyuntou402@msn.com. Again, thank you and keep being smart.

    You're welcome. Sorry but I don't know of any ways to change the look in FF. I believe IE has more options like this, but at the same they are not always effective.

    Hi,
    thanks a lot for the hint autostart=0!
    I spent quite a long time surfin' and this is
    - to my knowledge - the only place which
    has brought up the solution.
    Maybe the firefox people will one day think
    of that ...
