    Streaming video with playlists

    Hi guys,

    I would apprecriate your wisdom on how to stream wmv files on my site using a similar technique that I seen here:

    First off is there any particular software needed to do this? Also does it require much coding? Any info yous can provide me with would be great.

    Cheers.

    No real software, though Flash would make it a lot easier. What kind of playlist do you have in mind? One where a user selects a file, or one that runs and automatically runs videos in a selected or random order?

    Plays the videos in order of the playlist,user can't select which ones to play.
    I tried using Wimpy which is a flash player for videos which has playlists but I just wasn't happy with the software.
    How would I setup a playlist for windows media files?

    (I believe) you open notepad (or equivellent), type in something like this:


    <ASX version="3.0">
    <ENTRY><REF href="http://www.mydomain.com/File1.wmv" /></ENTRY>
    <ENTRY><REF href="http://www.mydomain.com/File2.wmv" /></ENTRY>
    <ENTRY><REF href="http://www.mydomain.com/File3.wmv" /></ENTRY>
    </ASX>


    Then save it as myplaylist.wvx (or whatever filename you want w/ extension .wvx). Then in the object or embed tags under src="?" make the ? the entire URL of your .wvx file.

    I've never made a wmv type playlist so this is a bit theorhetical. Hope it works!
