    How to create a "TV Screen" within a webpage?

    My brilliant idea is...er, was to have a video file (say, like an avi file) play when a button/link is clicked. Problem is how to embed "a tv screen" of some sort which will "remain" idle when the button/link is not clicked....and will change "channels" (play another video file) when a different button/link is clicked.

    Is this even possible? Anyone know the "right" script or code? Or maybe another program is needed perhaps?

    Any ideas in the right direction is very much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance for any replies! :)

    Simple enough

    Have you given using an inline frame a shot?

    Or you could always use flash. Not sure of your preference but either will work.
    Most of my questions/posts are fairly straightforward and simple. I post long verbose messages in an attempt to be thorough.

    Hmmm...sorry, i don't have a clue what an inline frame is....although I'm a bit familiar with frames but only those already provided by MSFrontpage...can you give me some directions on how to go about it??

    As for Flash, well, I know it would be the best way to do it...but i'm just starting out using it, so it may take me awhile to get comfortable with the idea. Besides, not all of my "clients" have Flash on their pcs...so there may be "compatability" issues

    Right now, we're trying to sort it out by using JavaScript...if you want to follow the thread (in another forum) Click Here
