OPEN command & .mpg files

dimoss Hi,

Finally after a lot of tries and different combinations, I managed to open my .mpg files as external files using the OPEN command.
That's the code  I used:
<a href="##OPEN('{app}\movies\test.mpg')">

However the files open in a maximized window and I don't like it because the .mpg file is made on a resolution 352X288.

As a result, the resolution is higher than this and the video is blur. Does anyone know how can I open the file with specific resolution (ex. 352X288)? Is there any combination of commands which I have to use?

Thanks in advance..

P.S. The Active E-Book compiler is GREAT!!

EBookCompiler I am not certain, but don't think you can do this using the standard media player.  As far as I remember there is no way to automatically set the Window player.

If you usewww.ebookpower.com(optional add-on) this will display a popup the right size

<A HREF="##AMM.VIDEOPLAY('{app}\movies\test.mpg')">Click here</A>

Look in the Multimedia Help for more examples of VIDEOPLAY as it has a few options

If you don't have Multimedia fromwww.ebookpower.com- download the demo to see how this looks.  There are some short example videos in there
