Linking Streaming Media
Writing your streaming link is the final step in bringing multimedia (video or audio) to your audience.
|Instructions and Screenshots|
With your web page open in FrontPage you will need to select the text that you wish to hyperlink. With your mouse, simply click in front of the text you wish to link to, hold the mouse button down and drag over the text.
Once the text has been selected, click the right mouse button and select Hyperlink or Hyperlink Properties. This will open the Edit Hyperlink box.
In the address box type your media link starting with mms://streaml/ccri.edu/
Next type the folder name, in this case Tutorials/ followed by a slash (note that the folder name is usually your username).
Type the full filename with file extension, in this case Enroll_Online.wmv
Save your work and preview your page in an Internet browser.
Click on your streaming link to test. Your video or audio file should buffer for a few seconds before it opens and plays in Windows Media Player.
If it does not, check your link in FrontPage or whatever web authoring program you are using.
