I've done this before, but it was a while ago and I used Frontpage 2002.  I'm using Windows Media Encoder 9.0 to create live video, and I'd like to push it to my website so I can share the output.  If I remember correctly, it was a component that was inserted in Frontpage 2002, but I can't seem to find it in Frontpage 2003.  Does anyone know how to put this content on a webpage using Frontpage 2003?  Thanks.

I usually use this HTML code:
<object id="MediaPlayer" width=320 height=286
classid="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
standby="Loading Microsoft® Windows® Media Player components..."
type="application/x-oleobject"
codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=6,4,7,1112">
<PARAM NAME="filename" VALUE="interview_fox_video.asx">
<PARAM NAME="autoStart" VALUE="true"> <PARAM NAME="showControls" VALUE="true">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="true"> <PARAM NAME="Autorewind" VALUE="true">
<PARAM NAME="ShowDisplay" VALUE="false">
  <EMBED SRC="interview_fox_video.asx" WIDTH=320 HEIGHT=286 type="application/x-mplayer2" name=MediaPlayer autostart=1 showcontrols=0 showstatusbar=1 autorewind=1 showdisplay=0>
</EMBED></OBJECT>

Change the source (interview_fox_video.asx) in BOTH places to the path of your media file

I don't believe I am looking for a "file."  It's streaming video and it's available on a port like 8080 or something.  I've got the encoder set to "pull from the encoder" on port 8080 as opposed to pushing it to a server or saving it to a file.  I don't want to save it to a file because it will get huge fast.

Well, it is a Windows media file as I am using Windows Media Encoder.  If I save the file, it is a .wmv file extension.  I'd prefer not to use Real Player stuff, but I will if I have to.

You do not have to.  The coding I gave you will play the Window Media file.  You can the path to the correct path of your file.

I did get the video content to work with the code you posted,  but it's not streaming.  It's only pulling the latest file published to the web.  I need code that is going to in a sense...redirect the image to the source on a different port.  Increasing the points on this one.  Seems more complicated than I had anticipated.

If I remember correctly from the last time I did this, when you went to the page, you would see a windows media player embedded in the website that would launch as soon as you clicked on the "play" button.

Not too sure what you mean by pulling the latest file published to the web?  And redirect what image?  

You can create a button to make a pop-up that will have the video embedded into the pop-up page

Check it out.  You can view the source and see if I'm missing something.

Check out your path: C:\Documents and Settings\Stephen\My Documents\My Videos\Camera.wmv - is this the correct path?  in the embed for netscape - you have Camera.wmv

when i preview it in the browser from frontpage, it shows the file playing,  but when I try and access it from the web, I get what you see...nothing to play....just the media player screen.  Also, it's not really streaming.  The video has a finite ending and then goes back to the beginning.

That is because you are working locally & you have the Camera.wmv on your local computer.

Is it not suppose to have a finite ending?  How are you uploading this to the server?  What program?

Got it!  Check out the code.  I used your code, but for the source, put in http://nicllc.com:8080 and it's pulling the stream properly.  Thanks Corey.
