    Video embedding problems

    Have been trying to embed a video onto a page for a clients website who continues to experience problems with whatever format I embed the video in.

    Each solution has worked in all testing I have done (Safari 4, 3, 2; Firefox 2, 3; ie6, 7, 8), but has caused problems on my clients XP laptop running ie6 and some version of aol

    A vimeo embedded file loaded slowly and crashed his computer running XP in ie6, and the current solution utilizing a wmv file embedded as an object is crashing his computer again.

    If anyone has any suggestions as to what might be causing the problem would be greatly appreciated, or an alternative way to do video that is less likely to fail.


    Heres the code with the vimeo video hidden from browsers but included in the code (ive substituted all links with # due to the post number requirement for links):

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "#">
