I am trying to add a small WMV file to a page using MS Frontpage.
I have followed the instructions is the Help section and it all plays fine when I preview it, but when I publish and then go onto the site I just get a black box where the video should be with a small icon in the box (kind of red green and yellow shapes)
is included in the files that are published to the server.
A neat way of handling such files is to create a special folder in FrontPage - call it 'video'. Then, import the file into that folder using the 'import' command on the FP file menu. Make sure that you click on the video folder before using the import tool, or you may inadvertantly put the file in the wrong place.
When the import file dialogue box opens, navigate to the location on your hard drive where the file is saved, and then import it. Now make sure that the place on the page that you select for the video link has a hyperlink to the file in the folder. When you've done all that, publish your site to the server again, and the video should work perfectly. Sometimes, free ISP webspace is quite small, and a large video file may be to big for the remaining space. If that happens there's not much you can do, but unless your file is very large you should be OK.
