Please see my issue on above page that I need to fix.
I've got a Vimeo video and a wmv video on this page with two buttons: one for flash, one for wmv player. The issue is that when the wmv button is clicked the video tries to load full screen within the pop-up box, and it is taking too long to load. On some browsers' versions it doesn't ever fully load. The flash player works with no problem. How can I get the wmv player working? Here's what I copied:

<div id="flash_box">

<iframe src=";loop=1" width="800" height="450" frameborder="0"></iframe>

<div id="wmv_box">

Good post its helpful for me also.

Thanks for your suggestion, but as to using the I think that would be good for the wmv file to detect the browser (IE or FF), but as I read the article I didn't think it would apply for both wmv and flash on the SAME page. As it turned out, the more ways I tried it the more difficult it became. The closest I think would work was to have one play in a new window.
