Does anyone have any thoughts on the best way to get ATW to index video files.

ie. should your video files have meaningful names or does the domain name they are hosted on also help?


does your domain also have to be in the ATW index initally for it to then spider content such .mpegs or .movs?

I would think they use the 'usual' parameters to index such content - text on the page, file name, alt text, link text, etc. Anything that a spider would normally parse out of an html document.

Try that & let us know how it works.
