I will have a page full of links to video tutorials. The video tutorials will be stored on a web server that is not my application web server. I would like the default media brower to start and play when a video tutorial link is clicked.
The code shown in the snippet opens a blank web page and starts the default media player. So it does MORE than I want. I do not want to open a blank browser page. I only want the media player to start.

See attached code snippet

How would I do open the default media player without opening a blank browser page in the Code behind file?
thanks,
pat
ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Page.GetType, "UniqueID", "window.open('http://www.cna.org/isaac/einstein_precess.avi');", True)
