Help With Linking to Video


 
Besson Hi

I am trying to have my video footage within another folder entitled 'video' on the cdrom and link to it as it takes
too long to open the ebook if I compile it all together (90mb).

However I cannot get it to work. The CD must autorun and the video is embed into the page. It was designed using html. The code I have got to at the moment is:


<embed type="application/x-mplayer2"
pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.aspx?displaylang=en&categoryid=4"
     src="[={app}]\music video1.wmv"
     name="MediaPlayer"
     ShowControls="0"
     width=270 height=240 LOOP="false"
AUTOPLAY="true"><P>


The ebook links work if the ebook is within the video folder so I would of thought just changing the src to src="[={app}]\video\music video1.wmv" would do it but does not? The pre-processor is on. Does the ebook.exe file have to be within the 'video' file to work properly, if so can I use the autorun function if it is within a folder.

Sorry for this but my business strategy has come to a slight halt because of this.

Thank you very much for your help in advance.

EBookCompiler {app} gives the path to the ebook EXE's folder

Try

{appdrive} if you just want the ebook EXE's driver letter,

so your video link would end up something like

src="[={appdrive}]:\videofolder\music video1.wmv"

Incidentally I believe in autorun you can link to an EXE in a sub folder by going the path, something like

open=.\videofolder\ebook.exe
