(OP)
Hi,

I am generating asx content on the fly from an aspx page that is served by IIS, and the video must display in FireFox without controls.

Using FireFox/WMP Plug-in

FireFox/WMP ignores the EMBED tag attributes and plays the videos - but how can I hide the controls?

For example, the attributes of the embed tag have an effect in MSIE and Safari but the following example results in FireFox/WMP displaying the controls.

CODE

<embed
ShowStatusbar="0"
ShowControls="0"
controller="false"
showtracker="false"
showdisplay="false"
showstatusbar="false"
type="application/x-mplayer2"></embed>

Using FireFox/VLC Plug-in

VLC hides the controls, but does not display the video! FireFox's VLC about:plugins reports..

Quote:


video/x-ms-asf | Windows Media video | asf,asx | Enabled
I have tried specifying several MIME types in the aspx, and its currently..

CODE

Response.Clear();
Response.ClearHeaders();
Response.ContentType = "video/x-ms-asf";

If I rename the .aspx to either .asx or .asf in Visual Studio, the file does not work in any plug-in. The asx content is as..

CODE

<asx version="3.0">
 <entry>
  <starttime value="01"/>
  <ref href="http://localhost/000.wmv"/>
 </entry>
</asx>

VLC is troublesome.
