While this worked fine with WMP10, but I install WMP11 (final) today and viewed a page where I had a .WMV video encoded at 320x240 but the HTML shows the video at 640x480.

Upon viewing the video, the window initially draws at 640x480 then instantly resized down to 640x240.

<object width="640" height="480" type="video/x-ms-wmv" data="Unity_Family.wmv">
	<param name="autostart" value="true" />
	<param name="controller" value="true" />
  	<param name="src" value="Unity_Family.wmv">

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a WMV video
2. Put it in a webpage and double the viewing resolution

Yes, I still see this bug in
Does comment 3 fix your issue reporter? If so, please mark this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
This plugin improves the behavior by playing the video with the correct aspect ratio, but it plays the video in it's original ratio, and not the resolution provided in the HTML markup.  As a user I have to manually set a zoom level in the WMP UI, which is not the intention of the web author.

Despite this fact, mixed with the point that this bug is mostly a cosmetic issue that's now 9 months old makes it trivial and I'm therefore going to reluctantly mark this bug as WORKSFORME.
