Director MX 2004 with ActiveX Windows Media Player
Posted on 2005-05-10
I am creating a CD-ROM with some text and a few mpeg 1 videos.
Due to economic reasons, I did not purchase any mpeg Xtras that are available,
but used the ActiveX Windows Media Player option instead.
I had specified the files that I needed in 'Filename or URL' field of the 'custom' tab.
After I published my file as a projector (.exe), it plays fine on the PC I created the file on.
But when I cut the files to a CD and played it on another system, the Media Player ActiveX control could not detect the video files.
I suspect the ActiveX controls are detecting the filenames of the videos as absolute links.
Are there any solutions for this problem?
