Embed Windows media player help RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently took on a new hobby and designed my own website for my business. A good friend of mine liked what he saw and asked if I would do the same for his company. Now mind you I am a lighting and staging designer so the only coding I know how to do is device definition language for dmx and moving light protocol.

    That being said my friend asked if I could put in a windows media player that would stream a series of video files that are in a folder on the root directory of the site. I got the basics down to embed a Youtube video but when it comes to the media player I am somewhat stumped.

    What I would like to do is have a windows media player that has a play list that the user can choose the selection they he/she would like to see and hear but also have all of the controls showing such as full screen, fast foward, pause , play list information, load as it plays from the site. I would also like for the player to be viewable for popular browsers and mobile devices.

    I do have a basic html code for a player (which I will list below ) but it is set to show only one video at a time and does not play in all browsers and now recently does not stream from the website. Can somene point me in the direction to a complete sample code that I can use as a reference point or help me with the coding I already have to make this work?
