  1. a user reminded me about this unaswered post, so here it goes: WMA 'streaming' assuming you created the WMA files, here's the code needed for an html page or a popup html window in order to stream that WMA file. All WMV (windows media video) and WMA (windows media audio) files have an ID name in order for the browser to identify what they are. Instead of just calling them WMV and WMA, Microsoft decided to call identify them with: clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95 You must insert this identifier in the html code of the page, and in order to tell the browser that a multimedia object is embedded, you must use the code: <object classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"> Next, you must specify the video or audio file that is embedded, so the code changes to: <object classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"> <param name="Filename" value="http://www.yoursite.com/folder/file.wma"> (you know what to replace there, right?) the above code shows the complete path to the WMA file, but if the WMA file is inside the same folder as the html file with the code, then you can simply write it like this: <param name="Filename" value="file.wma"> and that would give you something like this: <object classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"> <param name="Filename" value="file.wma"> finally, we close the object code by using the </object> tag, and we get something like this: <object classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"> <param name="Filename" value="file.wma"> </object> That is really basic code to embedd video or audio files into a page (WMV and WMA). The page will load and the files will play as soon as the page finishes loading. If you really want to personalize the stream, then you can use a few more parameters. for example: <object classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" id="Player" width="320" height="240"> <param name="AudioStream" value="0"> <param name="AutoSize" value="0"> <param name="AutoStart" value="0"> <param name="AnimationAtStart" value="0"> <param name="AllowScan" value="0"> <param name="AllowChangeDisplaySize" value="0"> <param name="AutoRewind" value="1"> <param name="Balance" value="0"> <param name="BufferingTime" value="5"> <param name="ClickToPlay" value="0"> <param name="CursorType" value="0"> <param name="CurrentPosition" value="0"> <param name="CurrentMarker" value="0"> <param name="DisplayBackColor" value="0"> <param name="DisplayForeColor" value="16777215"> <param name="DisplayMode" value="0"> <param name="DisplaySize" value="5"> <param name="Enabled" value="0"> <param name="EnableContextMenu" value="0"> <param name="EnablePositionControls" value="0"> <param name="EnableFullScreenControls" value="0"> <param name="EnableTracker" value="0"> <param name="Filename" value="file.wma"> <param name="InvokeURLs" value="0"> <param name="Language" value="0"> <param name="Mute" value="0"> <param name="PlayCount" value="1"> <param name="PreviewMode" value="0"> <param name="Rate" value="1"> <param name="SelectionStart" value="0"> <param name="SelectionEnd" value="0"> <param name="SendOpenStateChangeEvents" value="0"> <param name="SendWarningEvents" value="0"> <param name="SendErrorEvents" value="0"> <param name="SendKeyboardEvents" value="0"> <param name="SendMouseClickEvents" value="0"> <param name="SendMouseMoveEvents" value="0"> <param name="SendPlayStateChangeEvents" value="0"> <param name="ShowCaptioning" value="0"> <param name="ShowControls" value="1"> <param name="ShowAudioControls" value="0"> <param name="ShowDisplay" value="0"> <param name="ShowGotoBar" value="0"> <param name="ShowPositionControls" value="0"> <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="1"> <param name="ShowTracker" value="0"> <param name="TransparentAtStart" value="0"> <param name="VideoBorderWidth" value="0"> <param name="VideoBorderColor" value="0"> <param name="VideoBorder3D" value="0"> <param name="Volume" value="80"> <param name="WindowlessVideo" value="0"> </object> the parameters pretty much explain themselves... but I must remind that '1' means 'yes' and '0' equals 'no'. Now, there is something called 'ActiveX' that allows the browser to download the necessary components in order to playback to files (like missing audio or video codecs, etc). Not all browsers support this, but IE and recent versions of netscape/mozilla/firefox should do it). So the code will look like this now: <!-- BEGIN GENERIC ALL BROWSER FRIENDLY HTML FOR NETSHOW V3 --> <object classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" id="Player" width="320" height="240"> codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=,1,52,701" standby="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject"> <param name="Filename" value="file.wma"> <param name="AutoStart" value="0"> <param name="AutoRewind" value="1"> <param name="ShowTracker" value="0"> <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="1"> <EMBED type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/Downloads/Contents/Products/MediaPlayer/" SRC="archivo.wmv" name="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=240> </EMBED> </OBJECT> the grey code is the activeX part. This will allow for maximum compatability (not good spelling) in different browsers.
  2. I was not talking about parking my new domain on a sub-domain, but rather about redirecting my new domain to a sub-domain. Don't tell me that's not possible either! If is not, then I guess Im stuck with a domain name I won't use since I can't afford paying for hosting for that one too. And I bet there's no way to cancel now, is there?
  3. now onto the next question: now that I have a new domain... do I need to buy a new hosting account for that domain? couldn't I just setup a sub-domain in my own account and somehow redirect my new domain to the sub-domain? (can you tell Im student )
  4. ok, I decided to type all my info again. so now I have a new domain.
  5. Well, I have my domain (I registered with another company) and I host my site at TCH. I am trying to register a new domain with TCH. So I type the domain, I click register, and then I get to a page called 'create contact information'. I am asked to enter a 'login name or costumer number' along with a password if I am already a totalchoice costumer (which I am). I tried the username/pass I use on my cpanel, but that didn't work. I reviewed my welcome email from TCH to see if I miss something, but I found nothing there to input in the 'create contact information' page. Should I just type all my info again? where can I find my costumer number? is my current TCH password the same to use in that page?
  6. looks nice and all... but: AwStats stats is the only stats tool now? (redundancy). yeah, I feel the same way
  7. mmm, I made a tutorial some time ago that explains how to stream mov, wma, mp3 and real audio from servers that support and don't support streaming, along with all the html tags needed... there's only one problem: is written in spanish if you care about it let me know and I can re-publish it on my site.
  8. I had been trying out some php cms a couple of days ago. Since I was not satisfied with any, I decided to drop the databases and delete the sub-folders with those CMS. I had no problems with most of them, but I had this 2, when I deleted the folders (or sent them to trash), I couldn't completely get rid of them. Now I have 2 folders on the trash I am unable to delete. One says 'permission denied' and the other says 'folder is not empty' (even using flasfxp with the 'show hidden files' switch, I couldn't see any file). Any ideas? I don't think they are taking too much space, but still, the are annoying just sitting there. could a member of the TCH team delete them for me? my domain http://videoproduccion.org thanks in advance
  9. Finally I convinced my girlfriend to get an account with totalchoicehosting. When she was presented with payment options, she chose the credit car (visa) payment. Now she is pretty anxious about getting the site started, but so far she received the automatic response by mail (the same we all got a long time ago). I remember that when I signed up, I used paypal instead, and whithin minutes (less than 30 actually) I had my account running. The email states: "The below payment reminder / invoice has been automaticly generated by our billing system..." I was wondering... is this an invoice? or just reminder? or both? Should we click on the paypal payment link provided? Or she must wait for the VISA payment to be processed? it has been almost 24 hours already. Thanks for your response.
  10. mmm, I only know about video compression, filtering, editing and such topics. Does that qualify as something?
  11. thank you all for your replies. After Installing/Un-installing/Trying Mambo, eZPublish and php-nuke, I think Im going to install Xoops now (at least Im going to try). It makes sense what surefire said, but I am no coder, so I must rely on ready-to-use CMS to get the job done (as long as costumizing is not out of my hands). great support ont his board. Thumbs Up
  12. wops, I posted a little to late. I can see your reply now. thanks.
  13. hello MikeH... are you talking about the 'Nuke Cops PHP-Nuke 6.5 Enhanced Bundle' ? if so, I think I will try to install it myself woooot (if I can't I can always do the automatic install from main servers). thanks for the tip.
  14. By the way, it was when I selected the Default Theme called 'Slash' or 'SlashOcean' when the code give me an error on line 300+ pf the mainfile.php (or something) and I couldn't repair it (since I was not given much info about the error itself). Now, the database is a MySql database... I was wondering, is it possible to use it with other systems to retrieve information? or only by using php-nuke? Could I delete one php-nuke installation and keep the database to use it with a new installation? (just in case a similar error happens again). Can I create my own themes for the site? (if so, where do I go to learn) or are there other themes available for download somewhere? many thanks !
  15. thank you very much to all for your replies. I have already tried mambo, but it needed more features. And yes, ez publish is messy. Now since we all have php-nuke pre-installed, I am going to try that one (I had to remove a previous installation this morning, since the board became unsuable after selection one of the templates... some error). By the way MikeH, what version of php-nuke is pre-installed? right now I can see the newest one is 6.9, but not very many people like it. Xoops loosk nice, and I hope is as easy to use as phpnuke. thanks all.
