HOW TO UPLOAD VIDEO TO A WEBPAGE (2 posts)

    Can anyone please help me upload video to my webpage. I have tried the quicktime player method of send to webpage where it makes a file for you which is suppose to contain the code and all of the data to put into your webpage so that the movie will play smoothly. The movie plays on my webpage on my desktop but when it is upload it will not play. I can see the jpg picture which says click here to play but when I click it the movie will not play.

    This is the code Quicktime makes:

    Use this code in the <head> of your web page:

    <script src="scripts/prototype.js" language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="scripts/qtp_poster.js" language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <link href="stylesheets/qtp_poster.css" rel="StyleSheet" type="text/css" />

    Use this code in the <body> of your web page:


    <img src="seeapoy.jpg" width="570" height="496" alt="seeapoy"/>

    It also produces the following which you are suppose to put into your webpage and upload to the internet which I have.

    Exported:

    Reference Movie:
    seeapoy.mov
    Poster Frame:
    seeapoy.jpg
    Versions:
    seeapoy - Computer.m4v

    I would appreciate any help I can obtain. Thank you.

    Hi,

    After visiting your page, try choosing Activity from the Window menu in Safari. That will show you what files Safari tried to retrieve from the web server. If it failed to get any of them, that would indicate a file that still needs to be uploaded, or that needs to be uploaded to a different location.

    You can also look at the Activity window after opening the page from your hard disk, and compare the two situations, to understand why one is working and one isn't.

    I hope this helps,
