.wmv file wont play or open on other systems

Adam625
I have got a video to work perfect on my system but whenever I go to upload it to the server it wont open on another system, but I can still open and play the video on my system from the server. I am running Vista on my system and the other systems have XP Pro on them, could this be part of the issue or is there another fix to the video not playing.

Shouldn't they already be installed considering it is Windows XP and I'm trying to test it in Internet Explorer 8?

Put the link here for other working systems can verify if your set up is correct. Never assume anything from Microsoft.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="shadowbox-3.0.3/shadowbox.css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="shadowbox-3.0.3/shadowbox.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
Shadowbox.init();
</script>
</head>

That just shows the part of the code that is involved for the shadowbox to work, the shadowbox works, just the video will not play in the browser when the shadowbox is called. It says the video is ready but will not play and whenever you hit the play button it doesn't do anything either.

I fixed the problem. When I was testing it from the server it was putting %20 in the spaces, which was breaking my link some how. Once I pushed it to the web server the issue was solved.
