Hello, I have a problem embedding Media Player object for Firefox (in IE no problem). The issue is that when the video loads, the controls are missing regardless of having ShowControls="1", and the video doesn't start regardless of setting Autostart="1". The result is the video doesn't play and there is no way of get it started since controls are not there. I sure hope someone knows anything about this.

Here is what I have:

Actually I got it to play by setting AUTOPLAY="true" instead of "1". But the controls are still not showing.

Well, to get the controls working I had to install Firefox plugin from here:

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
