I've got a problem... I'm developing a webpage on my computer and I
can't get the links to my MPEG movies to work. I want them to launch
in a Windows Media Player. This is my code...
<TD vAlign=top align=left><BR><A HREF="view_files/movie1.mpg"><IMG
I've checked code on other websites (running on webservers) and it's
the same. If I right click on the file and choose "save as" I can save
the file to another location on my hard drive so the link is true, but
when I click on the link Windows Media Player does not launch playing
the movie. Can someone give me some help with this.
Thanks in advance.
Re: Playing a local mpeg file from a local HTML file...
CSS would really help you to trim that up a bit before you went live.
You really need a webserver on your PC to emulate what will happen on
the web. Of course, this is a web issue or your question would be
Well, the link isn't true. You're simply clicking on a file and moving
it. It has nothing to do with your HTML.
I'm completely out of my league here. I don't use a PC. But would
"view_files/movie1.mpg" be inappropriate for your PC. Doesn't Windows
use the "\" delimiter between files on your own PC?
