I can't figure out why my Windows Media Player playlist files are opening up as text within the browser when the links are clicked on. It's supposed to open up Windows Media Player and play the videos. What gives?
here's the url: http://MySite.com/video/bra.wvx
the browsers will open up and display:
<ASX version = "3.0">
<Ref href = "homecoming.wmv" />
<Ref href = "sp_bra_prev.wmv" />
<Ref href = "sp_bra_prev_journey.wmv" />
The formatting is right as the videos begin to play if you open the URL from directly within Windows Media Player. But it's supposed to work also by clicking on the URL so that WMP opens up and plays the videos in order without user interaction outside of clicking on a button, link etc.
A wvx or asf file is simply a textfile with the extension renamed, so when you open the files in notepad you see the text just as it displays in the browser. But it shouldn't be doing this in the browser; it should be playing the videos!
Alternate way to test is to click the "Sao Paulo" button on the site under the Videos section.
Thanks in advance!
