When you embed like that you allow the user to decide what the default player is. This results in a lot of issues. Especially when you have people not on a Windows box.
WMV's are great if you are on Windows but don't forget about Mac and *nix OS's.
The way to go is encode them to Flash or Quicktime. Both those will force a standard player on the viewer and will make your life easier.
