    The page is . I am having MAJOR issues with getting everyone to have the wmv files stream. Some people even with the most updated versions of windows media player still have issues. I believe the mime type is setup correctly and everything. Any ideas?

    True "streaming" media requires a media server. In the case of WMV files, you will need a Windows Media Server to serve the stream.

    First of all, I find the content of this site highly disturbing. Rod Stewart? Tribute? Ewwwwwwwwwwwww. heh

    Anyway...the file seems to download okay for me. It won't stream unless 1) it's embedded into a web page and 2) as transio said, you have a media server.

    If you embed it, then do something like this:
    <EMBED SRC="movie.wmv" autostart="true" WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240"></EMBED>
    The autostart="true" starts the video automatically without the user having to push play.
