If you came across certain video or audio files on the net and you need to use it on your website, myspace, xanga account or whatever. But wait, why not the usually provided codes?
They're fine but sometimes it comes with banners on it, urgh. I don't like banners, do you? If you don't, read on~

Here's a basic single code that retrieves an A/V file.

<embed src="http://domain.com/song.mp3" />

If you use video, logically you will have to add the width and height attributes like this,

<embed src="..." width="200px" height="175px" />

More importantly, you want to control the player not to autostart - some find it annoying... so add on autostart attribute and set the value as "true" or "false" :)

That's it! This usually works for all common media formats like WindowsMedia, Real, midi, MPEG, etc-etc.

i'm afraid i don't. look at other people's media box and try getting a link somewhere below it. it should direct you to a site where you can download other artist's media box.
