WMV files are not playing in mozilla browser (version : 17.0.1) for the first time while loading browser, instead it show a white box. When I switch between tabs or open applications and come back, it works (video starts playing). I have googled a lot regarding this issue but could not find any solution.

I have no idea as what is preventing me from doing this either a browser setting or code problem.

There is no problem while playing the same file in other browsers.

Please help me in this regard.

Thanks in advance.

And what is the html code you are using to embed the WMV?

We are using the following code to embed the video

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
sb.Append("<object classid=clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95 ");
sb.Append("codebase=,1,52,701 Width = " + Width.Value.ToString() + " Height = " + Height.Value.ToString() + "type=application/x-oleobject align=absmiddle");
sb.Append("standby='Loading Microsoft+reg; Windows+reg; Media Player components...' id=mp1 /> ");
sb.Append("<param name=FileName value=" + FilePath.ToString() + "> ");
sb.Append("<param name=ShowStatusBar value=" + ShowStatusBar.ToString() + "> ");
sb.Append("<param name=ShowPositionControls value=" + ShowPositionControls.ToString() + "> ");
sb.Append("<param name=ShowTracker value=" + ShowTracker.ToString() + "> ");
sb.Append("<param name=ShowControls value=" + ShowControls.ToString() + "> ");
sb.Append("<embed src=" + FilePath.ToString() + " ");
sb.Append("pluginspage= type=application/x-mplayer2 ");
sb.Append("Width = " + Width.Value.ToString() + " ");
sb.Append("Height = " + Height.Value.ToString());
sb.Append(" /></embed></object>");

FF and ActiveX are not close friends. I suggest you move from VMW to something more standard, but at least more wider spread, like HTML5 Video with fallback to flash. Look at this one:[^]
