I've got a few basic lines of HTML to test & put a viewer in a page, for testing purposes, but now I would like to make a professional polished looking website for live webcasts for small local events. I'm so far using MS Windows Media Encoder.

Obviously, I would like to give users the opportunity to resize or full-screen the player, provide a link to automatically download & install the player if it is not already on their machine, ensure that the webpage is suitable for Firefox, Explorer, Opera running on Windows or Mac, provide some link to replay the event if the come to the page after the event is over, etc. Plus it should look nice.

If anyone knows any templates specifically for webcasting/streaming, or a guide to the switches & how to use the embedded Windows Media Player, I would be grateful.
