Scripting Windows Media Player

Dan
I have the following code:
<html>
<body>
<OBJECT id="VIDEO" width="320" height="240"
style="position:absolute; left:0;top:0;"
CLASSID="CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6"
type="application/x-oleobject">

<PARAM NAME="URL" VALUE="axrtsp://192.168.1.100/mpeg4/2/media.amp">
<PARAM NAME="SendPlayStateChangeEvents" VALUE="True">
<PARAM NAME="AutoStart" VALUE="True">
<PARAM name="uiMode" value="none">
<PARAM name="PlayCount" value="9999">
</OBJECT>
<script type="text/javascript">
document.getElementById("VIDEO").play();
//also have tried document.getElementById("VIDEO").controls.play();
//also document.VIDEO.play()
</script>
</body>
</html>

The trouble is the video does not play unless I right click on it in IE
and select play from there. I am using Win Media Player 9 and IE6. This
is a live MPEG4 stream, I don't know if it has anything to do with the
trouble or not. The point is why does, a right click / play menu
selection work and not a document....play(). Dan

You should be able to click twice with the left mouse button and get it
to play.

The trouble is MS and EOLAS.

Because script can't instantiate an ActiveX object anymore that is hard
coded into the page or dynamically created within the page. If it is
created using document.write from an external file, then it becomes
instantiated and you can script it.

>What protocol is axrtsp: ??
I think it is a custom rtsp protocol for my axis video camera server
that I am accessing. I just put what the example showed for the server.

Im not sure what your getting at, I am a recent user of Javascript.
How do I accomplish what you suggest?
