I am trying to put a video on my website, but I have run into a problem.  Each video file is a collection of several files (Video, audio, etc.).  I understand how to put a file, such a pdf on the site, but when it is more than one file, that same method doesnt work.  

All video files can be palyed on Windows Media player.

    Hi Lazer,

    What format are the video files?

    Accepted Solution

    It sounds as though you are using SVCD (or equivalent) format, which is broken into 2 files - 1 for audio and 1 for video.
    Web browsers will not support this because they cannot handle 2 files, so the easiest option is to convert them into an alternative format (i.e. quicktime or WMV (media player)).

    Whatever software you used to compile the video *should* have an option to export into a new format.  Here are the best choices for web viewing:
    1. FLV (flash video)
    2. MOV (quicktime)
    3. WMV (media player)
    4. RA (real player - not too popular anymore)

    Rouchie - These vidoes were sent in by high school students from across the state, so I have no idea what program they were created the vidoes in.  Is there any way to take the file and convert it to a wmv another way?

    Yes, there are lots of video converters to go from home-DVD/VCD to avi/mpeg.  You may want to look into:
