I'm planning to insert video clip in my html pages(I'm using Macromedia Dreamweaver MX) and I don't have any idea at all how can I insert it.
I browsed around the internet and find out those video clips in other sites are "framed" nicely in the window media player and we can choose when to play the video clip.
Can you guys provide some advices and inputs?
Thanks a million in advance.
Check out this page.
here is some code that i used to embed a video on one of my pages one time.
<object id="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=270 classid="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
standby="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..."
<param name="FileName" value="myVideoClip.wmv">
<param name="ShowControls" value="1">
<param name="ShowDisplay" value="0">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="1">
<param name="AutoSize" value="0">
<param name="AutoStart" value="1">
<param name="AudioStream" value="1">
Hope this helps
I've tried with the code you showed.But don't know why,everytime i try playing the clip in my "design view" window,then the whole program will experience with error which causing the program to close.
I suspect there're something to do with my "parameters".I can't set my parameters where i was required to setup some "server testing" stuff whenever I try to setup the parameters.(I don't use Dreamweaver to upload site)And I was required to change the file type to other extension (no more .htm).The htm file become php or cfm file...
I tried uploading the file with my "incompleted video clip" to the internet as well but the clip couldn't play.Is it something to do with my internet browser(IE 6.0) or macromedia (dreamweaver MX)?
I had a problem trying to play it on some macs and on a couple of older PC's because of the version of media player that is installed. You may want to check that you have a version that will go with the code.
I dont know why it is causing your program to crash though? that sounds a bit dodgy..
I've successfully settled my problem.There're some error with my source "URL".Previously,I inserted the "local address" without the http. Though I thought I wouldn't affect.However,after I've changed the source URL to "http://" form (after uploading the clip to my host),everything's fine now.
Yup,it's an activeX (grey box) :))
Thanx a lot for your help Scally.. :))
