Scripting Active X controls in Firefox?
I can get it to work fine in IE.
Is there a way to get this to work in Firefox ?
That is without asking every firefox user change their browser settings or download anything extra
I am looking for script access to the embedded player as described in my question.
To further clarify the media player plays 3 clips one after the other.
What I need it to do is go back to the first clip and play that again.
most users are too illiterate to work out how to do it using the gui. So I want to add a button. as explained I can do it easilly in IE. I was hoping firefox had a way to do it. One way I can do it is using dom to remove and then recreate the control that should cause the embedded player to start again... perhaps.
I did this by creating an enclosing div
copying the innerHTML from the enclosing div
setting the innerHTML to '' (an empty string) and then copying back the original
you need to set innerHTML to '' to ensure that it is rewritten
Thanks for the looping suggestion. but no I didnt want it to loop. I wanted it to restart from clip 1 when the user clicked a button. pressing play restarts the current clip (an advert) and most users can't work out how to skip back to the first clip.
