I need to be able to play a .wmv video in a Windows Media Player component on a web page starting at a particular specified point in the video right away.

I can embed the component and play the video. The problem is that even if I specify the location with the PARAM “currentPosition”, the video starts to play from the beginning. This appears to be because the requested position in the video has not been loaded yet. If I wait until the video has been loaded to the requested position and refresh the page, it will then play from the requested position.

It seems that the video must start loading from the requested position in order to start right away. If this is the correct way, how would I go about doing it? If it is not, what is the proper way to do it? It can obviously be done, because YouTube’s players work like this.
