I need to play videos stored on our network Win2003 R2 server. My local Win7 machine is on the same network and I have admin access. I can play network videos from my machine that are stored anywhere on the network server but I need to play them from within a browser, an html (ColdFusion cfm) page on our server. I prefer Firefox but any would be okay.
What exact anchor link do I use in my page code?
The example network path is \\nserver\c\news\news1\videos\private\video_01.mp4.
The path is protected and not accessible from the public internet. Also, the path varies because the videos are stored on three different hard drives, d, e, f, outside the webroot so simply mapping them is inconvenient but doable.
I’ve tried various suggestions such as a prefix with file:\\\server\drive\path\filename but I can’t seem to get the correct combination.
