    Hi

    I am trying to get 4.0.1 compliant standard "<object" tags working rather than deprecated <embed, (with my Gentoo Firefox-bin on a mostly kde system).

    Embed opens mplayerplug-in in the same browser window, but Object opens a new window (but plays fine).

    My code is:

        <object data="http://x.x.x.x/video.m3u" width="100%" height="100%" name="mplayerplugin" type="application/x-mplayer2">
        </object>

    I have tried vo=xv,x11,sdl but no difference.

    Anyone have object tags working properly?

    Thanks

    John

      this is a different media, and also xhtml transitional: still just object, no embed, and plays with mplayerplugin inside the window. it did cost me much trying, to find a combination of attributes and params that plays with quicktime, possibly realplayer or wimp, (being application agnostic) on mac and windows too - I still dont know if only the machines I did try it on worked - so I am open for suggestions... see http://meltdowns.cunst.net/kino.html

      I got it as object in side the page with entering width and height in pixel coordinations.

      Could someone please show a list of valid param's and value's for the object tag.
      Especially I am interested in a flag which does prevent autoplay.

      I like to have the file loaded but only played on demand.

      cheers
