We have 20 office computers. I have a Dropbox folder on each computer. In that folder I have tutorial videos for software we use. I want to create a link on our company website that will launch these tutorial video files. What html code or script could I use that will find the video file using a shortcut path (e.g. C:\dropbox\videos\video1.wmv) in the dropbox folder and launch it using windows explorer. I have tried cutting and pasting this path into the Internet Explorer bar and it goes searching for the path instead of using the path to launch the video.
I understand that any HTML file online must also reference a file ALSO online. I cannot use a path to a hard drive for files from an online file unless I have set up my computer as a server.
Also, there are probably security issues that prevent IE from doing what I would like it to do.
Any suggestions for workarounds are appreciated.
