Dimensions of embedded video in Internet Explorer?

Hello,

I have a vcd sized movie file (dimensions 352x288) that I want to embed in
my web page. For this I use the <object> element:

===== BEGIN
<object width="240" height="196">
<param name="loop" value="false">
<param name="playevery frame" value="true">
<param name="cache" value="true">
<param name="controlle r" value="false">
<param name="autoplay" value="true">
<param name="src" value="videos/myvideo.mpg">

<embed src="videos/myvideo.mpg" autoplay="true" controller="fal se"
cache="true" type="applicati on/x-mplayer" playeveryframe= "true"
loop="false"/>
</object>
====== END
I want the video to play on the website with dimensions 240x196. In Mozilla
Firefox with the mplayer plugin, this works without problem. However, in
Internet Explorer, the video file keeps playing in 352x288, even when the
dimensions of the <object> element are restricted to 240x196.

What do I have to change in order for the video file to play in 240x196?

Thank you very much for your help!

Kris

Problem solved, simply by adding width and height attributes to <embed>
element.

I am rotating images of different dimensions. My problem is that when a new image is displayed in a new position which had an image of a different dimension, the old image is first stretched to the dimension of the new image, before the new image is loaded. How can I stop this stretching behavior? See the banner images on the right at http://finialworld.com thank you John

I have a news video that I am sending out for a client. There are embedded links to flash movies in the email. I want the popup to be a set size (400 x 400). I am currently using the following code, but the popup window is not 400 x 400, it is whatever the browser size was last time it was opened. How can I set the absolute size from within this email? Thanks.

We have a video camera connected to a video card and to a RS232 port for moving the camera. We want to transfer the video stream and control the position on a LAN (Ethernet - TCP/IP). On the client side the tests and displaying should be done in two ways : with Internet Explorer in a View Are you knowing samples for such applications (C++, C# ?) What are the methods to program such projects? Thanks Jack

Hello group, This might be a little OT, but there's so much more activity in this group than in microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.interop... so be warned :o) I have made a simple toolbar plugin for Internet Explorer. I would like to be able to show a drop-down-type of window, similar to Internet Explorer's security warnings.

If I have an .avi file is it possible for php, anything else too but hopefully php, to read the dimensions of the video file.

I know how to read the dimensions of the file when it's on my computer, but I change the video file frequently and this would be a lot easier, that's for the...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
