Using the Windows Media Player Control in a Web Page

Embedding the Windows Media Player control in a webpage lets you completely customize the way the user interacts with the control. You can use the interface provided by the control, or you can hide it and display your own user interface. You can specify multiple Windows Media Player control properties at the point where you embed the control, or you can set Player properties and call Player methods in script code.

The following sections describe the basics of embedding the control in a webpage.
