i embedded wmp in a html document. now i want to control the player via javascript.
my code works with IE (and NS 4.7), but not with netscape 6.1. even though
i used the new DOM rules, like accessing the media player object by:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
function playmov() {
var elem = document.getElementById("mediaplayer");
elem.play();
}
... --></script>

<body>
<OBJECT ID="mediaplayer" classid="..." CODEBASE="..." type="application/x-mplayer2">
<param ...>
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2"
name="mediaplayer"
pluginspage="..."
src="..."
</embed>
</OBJECT>
...
<a href="javascriptlaymov();">Play</a>
------------------------------------------------------------------------

why does this not work, anyone knows?
thanx oliver
