Windows Media Embedding Plugin

Windows Media Embedding Plugin allows you to embed WMV files in your blog posts. The plugin is based on QuickTime Embedding Plugin.

Installation & usage:

  1. Download the Plugin, and extract to a local folder.
  2. Upload extracted files to wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  3. Activate from the plguing page in WordPress admin panel.

After activiation, you can us the following syntax to embed a Windows Media movie in a post:

[WINDOWSMEDIA http://www.xxxx.com/movie.wmv 320 257]

Always start with a bracket “[” followed by “WINDOWSMEDIA” then the path to the file, the width and the height. End with a closing bracket “]”.

Also implemented the ability to specify whether or not the video should auto start/autoplay and/or have a controller. To use these two options you would form the tag as follows:
[WINDOWSMEDIA http://x.com/movie.wmv 320 257 true false]

The first “true” or “false” value is whether or not it should auto play and the second is whether or not a controller should be visible.
