Running .wmv In Fullscreen


Recommended Posts

Dear PHP freaks,

At this moment I am busy for my company to make a system that will run without human input.

You define a video and run it on fullscreen, that is on a big 32" lcd screen.

The problem is, I have my video working, but it just won't run in fullscreen automatically, whatever I try to do.

I am using IE 8.

This is my code;





Play video in fullscreen




<embed type="application/x-mplayer2"










src="dave.wmv" />




Its so simple, yet is does not work, and it is driving me insane these last couple of days.

Since fullscreen = "true" it should work.


Some help would me highly appreciated!


Greetings from The Netherlands and thanks in advance

I've got an update!

I changed my code to this:

<OBJECT id="VIDEO" CLASSID="CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6" type="application/x-oleobject" width="320" height="240">

<PARAM NAME="URL" VALUE="dave.wmv">

<PARAM NAME="enabled" VALUE="True">

<PARAM NAME="AutoStart" VALUE="False">

<PARAM name="PlayCount" value="3">

<PARAM name="Volume" value="50">

<PARAM NAME="balance" VALUE="0">

<PARAM NAME="Rate" VALUE="1.0">

<PARAM NAME="Mute" VALUE="False">

<PARAM NAME="fullScreen" VALUE="True">

<PARAM name="uiMode" value="full">



WHen I press the play button now, it goes into perfectly fullscreen.

Now the question is, hoe can I let it play automatically, without having to press play?
