WMV Streaming Video embed code (for IE)
A client recently wanted to embed a WMV video file. He was having a bit of trouble so I pulled together some Google searches to get the answer. Here it is for anyone looking.
This is not the best solution - but will get you by. I like RIVA FLV encoder (Tim showed me that one) and there are some newer encoders that when installed at the server level will encode on the fly - similar to youtube.com. At anyrate - for the novice user looking for a quick fix - this will do.
To embed a wmv video file for IE paste your code with the correct paths like this:
Put the code above in the html file referencing the "video.wvx" file.
Create a file called "video.wvx" and reference the actual video by adding this code to the file.
This works for wmv files which usually have a problem streaming in IE. If you are using another format - I'd probably need to see what you're doing.
Make sure all files are in the same directory.
The file should play when you go to the page.
