    I can't seem to make it work. I tried two codes:

    1. When I used the code below, the video does not show up at all. When I view the source from my blog page, the code is not there.

    <embed SRC="http://http://streaming5.vidilife.com/vidilife/video/2006/5/14/586869/717166.wmv" WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240" AUTOPLAY=0 CONTROLLER=1 LOOP=0 ></embed>

    2. When I used the code below, the video does not work either.

    <object classid="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" width="320" height="256" codebase="http://www.microsoft.com/">
    <param name="autostart" value="0"></param>
    <param name="autoplay" value="0"></param>

    <param name="clicktoplay" value="1"></param>
    <param name="controller" value="1"></param>
    <param name="pluginspage" value="http://www.microsoft.com/"></param>
    <param name="target" value="myself"></param>
    <param name="type" value="application/x-oleobject"></param>
    <param name="src" value="http://media1.break.com/dnet/media/content/skatmanrace.wmv"></param>
    <embed src="http://streaming5.vidilife.com/vidilife/video/2006/5/14/586869/717166.wmv" width="320" height="256" autostart="0" autoplay="0" controller="1" border="0" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/" target="myself"></embed>
    </object>

    When I viewed the source from my blog page, it just shows this code:
    <object codebase="<a />

    Yeah, use backticks and note that they fail across empty newlines.

    Try doing a search for 'embed' or 'embed wmv', may get some info quicker...

    I did search. That was where I got the codes. Unfortunately, none of them works for my blog. I use the blix theme. It seems that my wordpress is automatically linking the url's within the codes or something.

    I give up. I just installed Fallen Media Filter. Anyone know any other plugins that give you more customization options?
