Ok, I've done that.
The one thing I guess I should tell you is that I know enough to get into my web hosting service and the files and folders in my site to mauver around. I use Filezilla to upload folders and files that I don't create and edit in Expression Web. So doing simple tasks like this is no problem. It's just when HTML code get's involved I get lost. The only computer programing experience I have ever had was Fortran and Cobal back in the 70's in college.
Ok, I think I understand. I created a new HTML5 page (ScreenShot003) and checked that the body box created was represented by a cursor at the <body> on line 11. So I copied and pasted your code below that <body> as shown in (ScreenShot004). I also changed the src="video.js" to "DANGEROUS URL REMOVED" as you instructed. This was all done in the code tab of Expression Web. ScreenShot005 shows what all of that provided in the design tab, which would be the page view that would saved as the HTML page to publish. Am I doing right so far?
Yes I have a MP4 moivie file on the server named Tyler-Scores-MP4.mp4, it is in the same server website folder as the video-js folder which on my server is named www. (the mp4 file is NOT in the video-js folder but is in the same web directory folder)
Ok great! I wasn't pushing you or anything. I just wanted to make sure that you got my last reply. You have been very responsive so I thought I should check. Tomorrow will be fine, or longer if you need. I've been messing around with this for a month now and a couple more days isn't going to make much difference.
Hello my friend. Have you given up on me?
If you don't think my $ offer is acceptable please let me know. We got pretty far down this path and then you seemed to have gone silent.
ftp:[email protected] I don't kow about the directory as shown, but I checked to see if the file opened on my computer, which it did, and then re-uploaded it to the www folder. I am having the same problem opening it expecpt on my computer so I don't know what the problem is. If I go to the web page on line I can open Tyler Scores MOV.mov wich is in the same dorectory structure, as well as Tyler Scores WMV.wmv in the player embeded in the page (if you want to check them out @ www.rroodtube.com) Again, I can open all of them on my computer with no problem.
I created the MP4 by converting it in ALO Any Video Audio Converter from MPEG files which I also did to create the H264 videp.
The rest of what you wrote I will have to expolore, and it is going to take me some time. I know you have spent a great deal of time on this. I'd be willing to go ahead and autorize the payment if you like and then if there is a way to pay you some more I would be willing to do that also.
http:// w w w. r r o o d t u b e. c o m / T y l e r % 2 0 S c o r e s % 2 0 4. m p 4 (Tyler Scores 4) I did exactly what you did and converted the wmv file to MP4. I think the problem is that the MP4's have no player associated with them. The WMV video was created with the automatic function of Expression Web and the MOV video was created and saved in Quick Time Player and uploaded.
Ok I got it to sort of work. I copied and pasted the code that you tole me to and replaced the connectgo references with rroodtube. The "player" showed up in a new page but it wouldn't play the video. As I looked at your code, I noticed that you have referenced flowplayer in the middle of it a couple of times. Knowing that flowplayer is a flash player, I converted the tyler scores video to a FLV file and uploaded it and it plays fine. I see 2 problems - 1 is that I don't know why your video-js code won't play the mp4 files unless it has something to do with the flowplayer references, and - 2, I don't want the player to open in a new browser, but rather to play in the rroodtube page in the same manner as I have the wmv file playing - in place, locked size, with the player skin.
You have been great but I am about ready to go ahead and pay the $200 for MP4 functionality that Expression Web offers so that I can just use the Insert--> Silverlight into the design view of my web page. All of the codes are automatically written using that function and the player should (i believe) be embeded the same as the Windows Media player is
Hello again. I guess I need to ask if you have decided to withdraw from my question since I haven't had a response since last Wednesday. If so, I understand but would like to be told that is the case. As I have indicated before, I have no problem paying the fee for your services and am not opposed to continuing with whatever you believe is a fair price if there is a way to do it through Just Answer.
