Well, first of all, the file needs to be uploaded to your site. If you prefer Windows Media Player to open the file, then the file needs to be saved as such. In otherwords, a file that typically opens in Media Player such as mpg files. (However, you can't control this -- if I wanted all media files I click to open in Quicktime, I, as a user, could just associate the files with Quicktime)

To code it into your webpage do a simple link to the file...

Code: [ Select ]
<a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/yourmediafile.mpg"> Click here to see the video</a>
The file will automatically open the associated program the viewer has and play it.

hi... instead of a simple link i've been trying to embed my WMP file into an HTML page. my issue is that the video doesn't play on all browsers. i'm working on a Mac and currently the video plays in Safari but doesn't even show up in Internet Explorer.

it's been a very frustrating few days of trial and error and still no success!

i'd love to hear any suggestions :)

thank you much!
