You all know what the embed and onbject tags do, display media content within a webpage

Well as you will know, it uses the default media player installed on the machine for the associated file type.

So it will load in quicktime, windows media player etc..

Well, I want to make my own media player, so its a standard. I think this can be done with javascript...

It will need a play button, stop, fast forwarded, change volume

Its this achievable, if so, any examples of a working one

Thanks!

You can't "make your own" in the way you describe.  Sure, you have JS-based controls, but they need to interact with a "real" OBJECT.

Ah I see

So basically I can set the embed/object to invisible but use a javascript 'front end' to control the media?

If so, where can i get this exact info

Correct... I haven't done this in years, check MSDN for the methods to interact with the OBJECT.
