How do I put a video on my website with FP 2000?

Reply Fri 9 Jul, 2004 05:32 pm
I think I hate Front Page. So often, I put stuff on a web page, and it looks fine on the Preview, but won't work when published, or vice-versa.

Now, I have an .avi movie I want to put up and it shows up as a red X on the design page, but plays fine on the Preview, but won't do anything on the Internet.

How do I put a video player on the site? I'd like to have one that the user can click to turn on and off. I don't want my video to be downloaded to users' computers.

Thanks for your help!

What you describe is simply not possible.

Yeah, Microsoft Support says it can't happen either. You know, their software never messes up.

Seriously, I have seen websites with audio and video players. Exactly what are you saying is not possible to do?

It's not possible to use Frontpage to generate what you said, but based on your last comment maybe you just described it incorrectly.

To embed a player in the page is pretty simple, but the file still downloads to the user's computer (to the temp folder) and you had said you didn't even want that (which is, for obvious reasons a we bit tricky).

If you just wanted it embeded instead of lauching a player you can use this code:

Code:<object id="MediaPlayer1" width=180 height=200
standby="Loading Microsoft® Windows® Media Player components..."
type="application/x-oleobject" align="middle">
<param name="FileName" value="Server/file">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="True">
<param name="DefaultFrame" value="mainFrame">
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2"
pluginspage = "http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/"
src="Server/File" align="middle"

Change the filename value to a relative path to the file.

OK, that makes more sense. What I meant is that I don't want users to "click to download" a video. I want them to be able to click to start playing it, but not to have to click to download, then find the file, open their player, then play it.

Is that clearer?

Thanks, again. You're always a big help, Craven!

You may not have realized but Craven just gave you code to do exactly what you described. Wink You'll simply need to change 'width', 'height', and the value property of "FileName".
