I am not quite understanding what you are trying to do. What are you trying to accomplish?

sorry I haven't explained myself very well. on the load of the webpage i have a vb function that grabs the querystring that holds the path to the video, which will change values each time it's loaded. I need then to be able to use that string to set the path to the video file that is to be used by the embedded media player.

this is where I get the file path and assign it to the variable vid

<script runat="server">
    Dim vid, ext As String
    Sub page_load()
        
        vid = Request.QueryString("title")
        
        ext = vid.Substring(vid.Length - 3, 3)

        If ext.ToLower.Equals("mp4") Then
        Else
            Response.Redirect(vid)

        End If
        
    End Sub
    
</script> 


I then need to be able to use it in the html body

<object id="MediaPlayer1" CLASSID="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701"
standby="Loading Microsoft Windows® Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject" width="400" height="400">
<param name="fileName"  value="vid">
<param name="animationatStart" value="true">
<param name="transparentatStart" value="true">
<param name="autoStart" value="true">
<param name="showControls" value="true">
<param name="Volume" value="-450">
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" src="vid" name="MediaPlayer1" width="400" height="400" autostart="1" showcontrols="1" volume=-450>
</object>



so I need to use vid = Request.QueryString("title") to set the value of <param name="fileName" value="vid">
