I am trying to embed Windows Media Player 10 Mobile into IE Mobile on the Axim x510 with Windows Mobile 5.0 and WMP 10 Mobile. I have viewed a sample from Microsoft posted 8/2005.

However, I am having problems using it on the device. I get an error stating "The system cannot find the file specified" when the page loads. I can get the page to work when viewing it on a normal PC in IE but it will not work on the PDA.

In an attempt to get a working version I have been using a simplified version of the embedded code.



<OBJECT id="VIDEO" width="320" height="240"
    style="position:absolute; left:0;top:0;"
    <PARAM NAME="URL" VALUE="test.wmv">
    <PARAM NAME="SendPlayStateChangeEvents" VALUE="True">
    <PARAM NAME="AutoStart" VALUE="True">
    <PARAM name="uiMode" value="none">
    <PARAM name="PlayCount" value="9999">



The web page and video file are located in the same directory on the PDA. I can play the video when I directly view it in WMP but it does not play when embedded. I have tried to use an absolute path but that failed as well. Am I formatting the video path correctly? Are there only certain video types that will work as embedded?

Am I embedding the WMP correctly for a PDA? Any help would be much appreciated.

That worked!  You made my day!  I had tried the absolute path but I had put in the "%20" for the space in the "My Documents" path.  I also took out some of the extra stuff so it was bare bones.  This is the sample that worked:



<OBJECT id="VIDEO" width="400" height="300"
    <PARAM NAME="URL" VALUE="file://\my documents\videos\test.wmv">



Thanks, freitasm!
