When previewing the page from files on my machine, the movie plays. Once I upload the files via FTP and access the page, it comes up with the player but no movie...
I've tried <embed>:
<embed src="austrian.avi"; autostart=TRUE playback=FALSE>
<object id="Player" width="320" height="240"
<param name="autoStart" value="True">
<param name="URL" value="movie_wm7.avi">
My immediate need is a way to view the AVI using Windows Media Player. (Client is restricted to this player.) Not sure which is better <embed> or <object>, but which ever is used, I need the correct code.
Your help is appreciated.
To embed Windows Media, the file extension should be WMV. You create an ASX file in a text editor to access the WMV file. The <embed> tag on the HTML file references the ASX file. (Don't ask... but it works.)
This is the best, and easiest, article I found on the subject. I'm writing a personal "Thank you" to this guy...
BTW - I've successfully put up streaming video accessed thru QuickTime and Windows Media. If anyone's interested in the down & dirty, let me know.
