Hi,
I have two frames on my webpage.
In frame1 I have my links : link1, link2 etc. and I would like to use javascript so that when you click on link1 in frame1 you see a video movie1 in frame2 with eventually the embed tag using windows media player. and link2 will show movie2 etc.
How can I do that?
Thank you

Using this frameset:
<frameset cols="134,*">
<frame name="frame1" noresize src="page1.html">
<frame name="frame2" noresize src="page2.html">
</frameset>

frame1 is the left frame and frame2 is the right frame.

page1.html looks like this:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function showMovie(moviename, moviewidth, movieheight)
{
var a = "<embed src=\"" + moviename + "\" width=" + moviewidth + " height=" + movieheight+" autostart=true>"
top.frame2.document.open()
top.frame2.document.write(a)
top.frame2.document.close()
}
</script>
<a href="#" onClick = "showMovie('movie1.mpg',640,480)">Movie 1</a>
<br>
<a href="#" onClick = "showMovie('movie2.mpg',320,240)">Movie 2</a>


As long as you copy the entire script tag (from <script> to </script>), you can call the showMovie function like this:
<a href="#" onClick = "showMovie('movie1.mpg',640,480)">Movie 1</a>
file.mpg is the name of the file.
640 is the width of the movie viewer in pixels.
480 is the height of the movie viewer in pixels.
It will output this to the right frame (frame2).

If you have any other questions or if you'd like further customization or explanation, please ask.
