      Hi All,

      Please tell me what I am doing incorrectly in the sample web page below. My
      intention is for the web page to play a video when it is opened. The video
      in a file called "interview.rm", and it is in Real Media format.

      Of course, once I get the HTML working, I will upload the web page and the
      video file to my website. Currently, the web page and the video file are
      stored on my local PC.

      To test this code, I was successful in getting an audio file to play. The
      relevant code for the audio experiment follows:

      <object data="c:audio1.wav" type="audio/basic">[sample audio]</object>

      When the page opens, Windows Media Player begins playing the audio1.wav file
      with no special intervention by me. IOW, the file autoplays.

      In the example below, I substituted the name of the video file in place of
      audio file in the Object element, but the video does not play. Instead, the
      "[sample video]" message appears. On my PC, .RM files are associated with
      RealPlayer (32) version 10.0. If I navigate to the video file and
      double-click on it, the video plays normally.

      Thanks for the help.

      Ray Shapp
