    Question Website Videos

    I'm trying to upload some videos, i.e *.wmv, to my website and have them open in Windows Media Player, or whatever the user has it setup for. I made a test page, uploaded a video, and made a link to it on the test page. Rather than open the video in WMP, it started downloading it. Is there a script I should use to have it function the way I want it to?

    i'm not very well experienced when it come to embeded content. however, this is more a HTML issue than javascript. if the link address point directly to the video, the file will download because the browser don't know what to do with that content. so, basically the link have to point a html document that will contain the embeded content with the tag <object>. try googling how to embed video with <object> tag, or ask a moderator to refer this topic to HTML forum. or hopefully (very likely), someone here will tell you.

    Thumbs up Thanks

    I looked it up and found a cut and paste embeding code. I haven't tried it yet, but it should work for me.
