Video clips only working in Quicktime (I.e. not RM or WMV)

Video clips only working in Quicktime (I.e. not RM or WMV)

Video clips only working in Quicktime (I.e. not RM or WMV)

I have been trying to add video clips. Everything works fine with Quicktime movies but I need to run WMV files so tried Real and Windows Media Player. In Preview the site runs OK (when the relevant page is opened the clips run automatically) but when I Local Publish the video positions are black and won't run - I assume this will happen if I were to publish externally so dare not try it yet. Any ideas what's wrong?
I am running XP Home with Fusion 7.5. The problem occurs with both IE and Firefox. In all cases both browsers request permission to run ActiveX first but only in Preview will then clips load and run.
If this is a bug is it fixed in Fusion 9? Also, for Quicktime clips there is the option to remove the video controls and set it to loop the clips indefinitely. These options are not there for Real and WMP. Has this changed in Fusion 9? I would be willing to upgrade if so.
