I hav'nt tried doing this befor so it might be quite easy i simple just dont know. I currently use Flash MX for building Websites and Microsoft Frontpage, I know PHP, HTML, Pearl, VB and a few others. What i wont to do is to build a simple page with 5 links if you were to clicko n these links it would open up a new page with a Media player embbed in it, thus playing the movie clip. How do i with either Flash or Frontpage put a Media player on it.
