The webpage frontend is for mozilla only (as it's personal I'm prettying it up using some moz only CSS attributes - until CSS3 comes along). It's running on Apache + MySQL + PHP, and I'm accessing it via a URL, rather than a file:/// address (obviously, or the php wouldn't do anything ;-) )
Now each movie is not on the website end, but in another location on my network, accessed via a samba share (Z: etc) - I can easily work out where it is via the database, so I can pass a local path for it.
My problem is how to stream the movie.
Normally without the frontend it's be a case of clicking on the movie, and letting the default player handle it.
I'm not averse to using a plugin for mozilla to play the movie inside it (so long as it could go to fullscreen) - nor have I got anything against finding a way for a web page (on this site at least) to tell mozilla to "download" a LAN file, and use the default player...
Any code snippets, or URL's of plugins, would be appreciated. If you want to be nosy and see the site as it is now, then drop me a sticky ;-)
The files are all divx encoded, and I have already had a play with the divx plugin, but it's not quite able to do what I want, though my main disagreement is that it's not a mos plugin, and needs an activex plugin to enable it to work...
