Do you guys have any experience with embedded media players? If I understand the code right, I am using Windows Media Player based on this record in the html file:

type="application/x-mplayer2"

My question is what other media players are there usually to use? Or is Windows Media Player the only option? Could I use some java player or something like that?

A java player would be an applet, and yes, it is something one could use. There are any number of media players. Do you have particular restraints that limit you to a single format?

Well, I just want to play online radios and online TV stations on my web site. I do not know what formats they are using, but they usually work with type="application/x-mplayer2". I just fill in the url="http://example.com/example" and it runs. But I would like to experiment with other media players or java scripts if availble.

What could I try?

For most online feeds, they provide the HTML necessary to embed their content. Is there a particular site that you can not find the code for?

Yes, but I need to embed several feeds into one stile of a media player. I think WMP will do for me.

For offline feeds I am gonna use Flash player

But cant find a software to convert WMV to FLV... I installed like 5 softwares I found on google and all was crap, hope won`t get spywares

When embedding Media Player, do I need to use both <object> and <embed> tags?

.. or is this an issue of the past?
