View Full Version : Video page test

10-28-2009, 09:12 AM
Some goof claims my page of videos (7 of them I think) don't work...not a one. I find this hard to believe. Of course this is an insult to my fantastic coding talent...ha ha. I was wondering if someone could check out this (http://buskeralley.com/spotlight_lane1.php) page and see if all the windows pop with the video inside it.

I'm also considering forgetting the popped window and just linking to the video. The user would then right click and "save target/link as" or somesuch.

Thank you

Is the user on a Mac?

I don't know...He's pretty goofy so I wouldn't be surprised if he was :D
Can anyone test with a Mac?

You are using windows media player to embed your videos so the chances of them working on a mac are slim. They don't even work for me but thats because I don't have the WMP plugin installed in Firefox. I'm on a PC.

Ok...Thanks all
I was thinking of just linking to the file without popping the window so they can decide how to play them...unless there's new preferred way

Convert your videos to flv format and use a flash player to play them.

Well, it seems every 5 years there's a superior way to display internet video like wmv9, flv, h264, wmv-hd, etc.
If I only had a few clips and not thousands, it could be easily done.
