To insert a Windows Media File into your web page, follow the instructions below:

To change the mode, go to the bottom left hand-side of the Editor and click on the  . This view will show you the HTML generated while working in design.  If you have not done any work while in design you will see a blank text box ready for input.  To go back into Design mode, click on the .  You can switch between modes as needed.
  2.  Once the Editor is in HTML mode, you will need to copy & paste the object and embed tags provided below:
<OBJECT id='mediaPlayer' width="320" height="285" 
standby='Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components...' type='application/x-oleobject'>
<param name='fileName' value="{YOUR_FILE_ID}">
<param name='animationatStart' value='true'>
<param name='transparentatStart' value='true'>
<param name='autoStart' value="false">
<param name='showControls' value="true">
<param name='loop' value="true">
<EMBED type='application/x-mplayer2'
id='mediaPlayer' name='mediaPlayer' displaysize='4' autosize='-1'
bgcolor='darkblue' showcontrols="true" showtracker='-1'
showdisplay='0' showstatusbar='-1' videoborder3d='-1' width="320" height="285"
src="{YOUR_FILE_ID}" autostart="false" designtimesp='5311' loop="true">
  1. Once you have pasted the object & embed tags into the editor, you will need to change the {YOUR_FILE_ID} to the fid of the movie.  You can get this fid, by inserting the link from My Portfolio.  Once the link is inserted, you will see the following (in HTML mode):
    <a href="" tooltip="" target="_new">SampleVideo.wmv</a>

    Once you have extracted the fid from the link, you can remove the link from the editor.


Once completed, the movie will be visible by clicking save and viewing the page on your website.  Below is a sample of the movie:
