Hi people,

is there a piece of html coding that allows a link, once it has been pressed to open up windows media player, and play a clip?

dazzclub, thats a lamos way of doing it.
there are a number of alternatives to play movies on website.

convert the avi or mpeg to a flv file and use a standalone streaming flash player to play the video.

there are many benefits of doing it the wat i just mentioned above, such as greater audience, less to download, streaming video (start playing before the video finishes d/l) and you make ur user stay on your site.

or the simplist way of doing it would be to upload ur video to youtube, ning, etc etc and then embed the swf source code into your page.

no one really likes to wait for a movie to d/l before they can watch it. Go streaming!
