Probably as simple as updating your media player

Let me guess, Indeo Video codec and Windows XP SP1, right? Ultimately, you
need to get the right codec.

all I got was sound.
and the links appear wacky, needs a tad of html code touch-up.

I am having the same problem, trying to view some vid done on an
Alaris Wee Cam probably on Windows 95. Was getting audio only and
found I needed a vgpx codec to fix the problem. Well, it didn't, still
only getting audio. Alaris is apparently out of business and I pitched
the junky cam when I got my new one. Any ideas on how to fix the
problem? I am viewing with Windows Media Player 9.

Thanks for all your suggestions

Questions are

- do you mean update the windows media player on the server or
client?

- how do I set about getting the latest codec? Are they manufacturer
specific? Is is a driver that I got with the camera?

- I believe the code is fine - unless of course you read that code
and saw something that is incorrect - comment welcome

thanks again

Una

Code http://www.sssschool.org/photos_4_2003.htm

Looks to be you have links that are not being read by properly by IE,
probably simple code errors.
I have not viewed source.
I looked at what IE sees.

i dunno.
example...
clear cache, clear history
choose one and click link;
SEAN NOS DANCING 851KB
CEILI DANCING 2052KB

[A href="photos/AVI_2003/Ceili%20Dancing%201.avi"]SEAN NOS DANCING 
851KB[BR][BR]CEILI DANCING 2052KB[/A]

Both links show active when either is clicked. Problem lies ahead of ,
and/or behind of these links - i dunno. Others links are like that too.

Have to concur! I saved target as and played one Avi locally and got
sound no vid. So something went wrong in the recording and not the
website.
