My wife is attempting to upload a video to a website she is working on for a client.  She has never done a website with video before and has hit a snag.






The video she is wanting to upload is actually several videos all in one file that has links to the other video sections right there with it.  She has created this in Flash but cant get her coding right.







Does she need to host this multi-video file?


What is she doing wrong?







Here is some of the code so far:














<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">


<head>


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />


<title>player</title>


<script language="javascript">AC_FL_RunContent = 0;</script>


<script src="AC_RunActiveContent.js" language="javascript"></script>


</head>


<body bgcolor="#ffffff">


<!––url's used in the movie––>


<!––text used in the movie––>


<!–– saved from url=(0013)about:internet ––>


<script language="javascript">


if (AC_FL_RunContent == 0) {


alert("This page requires AC_RunActiveContent.js.");


} else {


AC_FL_RunContent(


'codebase', 'http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0',

); //end AC code


}

the video does need to be hosted on the web server to be accessible by the flash player, just like any other referenced file.





what format is the main video in?

does this video have built-in links to the other videos or is she building the video links/menu?
Link Posted: 6/1/2010 6:26:44 PM EDT
It is a Flash video format.  The video has built in links.

I wish I could help, but I can't.  Nice wife.  I'll help by bumping your thread.  How do you make a thread title bold?  
Link Posted: 6/1/2010 6:31:16 PM EDT
She's cute!  Any help?
Link Posted: 6/1/2010 6:31:36 PM EDT
Can you get to player.swf in the same directory as the HTML?  It is possible that you have a permission problem.

you have a good looking wife but having a good looking wife won't fix the code



Link Posted: 6/1/2010 6:42:56 PM EDT
yes

I'm no coder but I'll take a blind stab.



"embed src="player.swf""



I would put a more exact link to the file.

#1) Download Windows movie maker
#2) Edit movie
#3) Upload movie using built in publishing from Windows Moviee maker to You Tube

is she using flash for anything other than embedding the video?



if not, then she is really doing something equal to embedding a youTube video into her own web page, and could technically get away with only using the <object>...</object> portion.



note the BLUE parts... they need to be the relative path to the FLV file she is trying to load. it should be the same value in all the instances, because it's just naming the file multiple times for use by different browsers. if she uploads them to the same folder that this HTML file is in, then you just need the filename of the FLV file.

Is there a specific reason she has to use flash?



Otherwise would it be possible to compile em to one big movie and upload to somewhere like vimeo?

What he said.  The .flv file will have to be hosted somewhere, preferably on the same site.

Maybe things have changed recently, but aren't FLV files the creator files and swf the end user files?

I'm no flash guru for sure, but as I understand it .flv and .swf can both contain flash video.  .flv is a container format if I understand it right.  I think you're thinking of .fla files, the author files.

The .flv is the actual video file. Unless you're using HTML5, you can't just link a video in HTML. You have to use some sort of player, be it Flash or WMV.

Given the loveliness of your damsal in distress, I deeply regret that I am clueless on that aspect of web stuff.
