Hi there I'm building a website to contain my art work which is mostly time based so itís important that I can get WMP to work. Unfortunately I'm not that great at web design, and havenít managed to get it right, after a number of days of trying.

I have managed to get it running in firefox on both mine and a friends computer but still canít work out why its doesnít work in explorer.

Any help would really be appreciated.

my site can be found on www.jonnyfenton.co.uk

it doesnt work for me either

i would rethink your site as the design is a bit shabby. I would also use flash to play your movie then most visiters will be able to see it no mater what browser there using

go here for design inspiration ('http://www.cwd.dk')

there is a thread on here somewhere that shows you how to import movie files into flash.

im sure i did a tut that failed to get published on here? however im used to rejection :(

Well it worked for me and I gotta say, do you want people to ACTUALLY visit your site? If so I think some serious designing is needed badly.
Also I agree with dj, use flash and stream that movie.

My site has no design yet LOL I'm still working on the design ideas, It should have a better face by the end of the weekend.

But I really wanted to get the media player element working. How do I use flash to stream? because thats what I really had in mind.

there should be a download that includes a flash file (.FLA)

use flash to open this file

the instructions should be on the site
