    Quick search of the web and I found this...

    Code:
    <EMBED SRC="postermovie.mov" WIDTH=240 HEIGHT = 180 AUTOPLAY=true CONTROLLER=false LOOP=false HREF="mymovie.mov" TARGET="myself" PLUGINSPAGE=http://www.apple.com/quicktime/">
    No doubt you can modify for the file you want to play back?

    Have you tried using the page viewer web part.
    Link directly to the file and if the player is installed it will just work.

    Thanks

    Content editor webpart will strip out some of the embedded code i think, in case your wondering why it wont work.

    There is also a modified content editor webpart floating around on the net which will allow embedding to work.

    But the above method should work anyway

    <!-- begin embedded QuickTime file... -->
    <table border='0' cellpadding='0' align="left">
    <!-- begin video window... -->
    <tr><td>
    <OBJECT classid='clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B' width="320"
    height="255" codebase='http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab'>
    <param name='src' value="PUT FILE PATH HERE">
    <param name='autoplay' value="false">
    <param name='controller' value="true">
    <param name='loop' value="false">
    <EMBED src="PUT YOUR FILE PATH HERE" width="320" height="255" autoplay="true"
    controller="true" loop="true" pluginspage='http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/'>
    </EMBED>
    </OBJECT>
    </td></tr>
    </table>
    <!-- ...end embedded QuickTime file -->

    By playing ipod files do you mean MP3's? If so maybe embedding quicktime is not your best bet and something like a flash mp3 player would be better.
    Especially if you could find one that links to a document library

    its M4P files i was trying to play, and this is the only way i have found to play the on a LG site.
    The reason to use thses fileswas that student could download it in the same format and put them to there ipods.
