embedding a local video file
I am trying to embed an .avi file into a web page. The trick is that the file is stored locally, and not on the server. I am using <object> tag for this and specify the path to the file as "file:///blah-blah-blah". By some reason it doesn't work: it shows the empty WMP box, but the video doesn't start, and the buttons are disabled.
I tried to modify the security settings, use the <embed> tag instead - doesn't help. It works fine if I place the same file on the server.
I understand this task is not what you normally do on the web, but I really need the file to be local. Anyone knows how I can do it?
sorry i don't under stand what your saying
Here is what I need: I open a page on the web, and this page plays a movie from a folder on MY computer. If someone else opens the same page, and he desn't have that movie on his machine, no movie is displayed.
