Can someone give me any idea on how to handle these files..
mov, mp4, wmv .. these are all video files.. the problem is..
whenever I click a link..
I would like to stream in on a browser window.. safari.. not download it..
I was told that it was doable in htaccess.. but i dont know where it should be placed..
pretty much noob in this subject..
Hope someone can teach me on how to do this..

That said, it might be possible to do this with HTTP headers via .htaccess files assuming that Safari can natively playback MP4 files (or has a plug-in that can do it), though I can't tell you for sure since I don't own a Mac and therefore can't test Safari. Put the following code in an .htaccess file within the directory containing the relevant video files:
Code:addType "video/mp4" .mp4 header set content-disposition: inline
For every complex problem, there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.
