lol okay, I have a unique problem, and inconsistencies are preventing me from figuring out what it is.

I have a music player on my myspace page which uses windows media to play.

We have 7 computers in our house. The music will play on 2 of my 3 desktops and none of my laptops if I use Firefox. All of the computers will play the music if I use Explorer. I don't have a mac, so I can't test anything that way.

my page is Here. The music should play automatically, provided it is working correctly.

This is the code I am using...

Code:
<object type="application/x-mplayer2" classid="6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6" allowScriptAccess="never" allowNetworking="internal" height="30" width="100">
  <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="never" />
  <param name="allowNetworking" value="internal" />
  <param name="InvokeURLs" value="0" />
  <param name="fileName" value="http://www.dv8films.com/myspace/mp3/Under.mp3" />
  <param name="URL" value="http://www.dv8films.com/myspace/mp3/Under.mp3" />
  <param name="src" value="http://www.dv8films.com/myspace/mp3/Under.mp3" />
</object>

All of the browser settings on each one of my computers is exactly the same.

Any thoughts on why this is happening? FYI - It is not a new thing, either. It has been a problem for about 8 months now.


Also, the early versions of Firefox did not support "Classid" tagging, but the new version does, so I left it in there. It never made a difference, though. It worked the same when I didn't include it.

Interesting...I tried it with Firefox 2.0 and it didn't play, but IE played it right away. Been a while since I messed with HTML code, but if I get a chance I'll see if I can't tinker with what you've got there. I imagine someone else will happen along and fix it for you right away though lol.

I can play the mp3 file directly from the browser (IE6 & FF2)

off the top of my head, since FF might not be completing the code like IE does... try camel backing 'InvokeURLS' to 'invokeURLS'

hell, it could be one of your params.

The invokeURLs property has two Boolean values: true and false. Change your code to the following
<param name="invokeURLs" value="false" />

You change the parameter to false and clear your cache?

maybe there is another banged up param in there. IE does alot of completing of code to make things work.

I just figured out one thing that could be (or probably is) a major road block. Myspace auto-recodes everything. Every time I change my perameters, myspace just changes them back.

:cussing;


I have an email in to them regarding the situation. Thanks for the help up to this point. I'll have to get back to you on what happens next, though.

No surprise there. I have seen a few social networking sites that do that. They make their own rules when it comes to that kind of stuff. What they want to accept and what not is a gamble.

Yep. I liked it a lot better when everything was left up to each individual person. I had a different account before this one, and back then if you didnt know HTML, your page was plain white and orange. For some reason I liked it a lot better back then. It was sort of a way of showing off your talent (or lack there of) with HTML. I wrote all of the code for my page, and I was learning as I went. I got it to the point where I was truly happy with it... I even take all the pictures that I use for the background myself. Now all of a sudden people are popping up everywhere with flash based pages and what not... a lot of stuff I don't even know how to do. The bitch of it all is... they don't even know what HTML is, let alone how to code it themselves. Takes away from the fun of it all, if you ask me. Just like when I used to compete in car audio... people with tons of cash and no brains in their heads were showing up at competitions with insane systems and they didn't even know what brand any of the equipment was.

Of course, the difference in that being... Usually the DIY audio guys would clean house at the competitions. I competed along with a "Team". There were 4 of us total. Every competition, we would take 1st place in each of our classes (We never ran in the same class). On top of that, one of the 4 of us would always take "Highest SPL" trophy for the day, as well. :)

Too bad there is no gratification left in learning to code your own pages. :( None that can be displayed, anyway.

:laughing: Perhaps frustrating, but consider that the IT Security realm was once in constant fights with folks doing pretty much the same thing with computer attack code. They were (and still are) called script kiddies.

Learning coding isn't really that hard once you understand one language in a particular paradigm. The rest of the languages in that paradigm are all the same with slight nuances or syntax differentiating them.

I may abuse you for your car audio experience :eyebrows:

I sent you a friend request, and my profile song is far better than yours.;)

So, I see you are a midget, ehh? 0' 0". I am curious to know how you get around on a bike. :twofinger
Very carefully, I'm guessing
