eg8r &lt;~~Not surprised that Q and I don't even use the same web authoring software /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I think your talking to someone who hasn't a clue, Like me. A little explaination is in order or some links. Personally I think I'd ask this question on CNET as there would be a lot more replies. To what I consider a very technical question for many users.

I am not sure just how technical his question is. Popcorn, would you clarify what you mean by putting a video on a website. For example, is this something that you want so that a user can click on it and watch, do you just want something running on a loop that will play as soon as the user loads the page, etc.

The question needs to be a little more clear (intentions and expectations) otherwise a reply could be as equally vague as saying just ftp the video to your site.

"but I am still a Dreamweaver guy".

Wow! You are so cool! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif


Dont you think it would be prudent to know what web software he is using? /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

eg8r, if he doesnt know how to put a video on a web page ,the chances are he is not using Dreamweaver.

FrontPage has its drawbacks but that depends on what kind of site you want. If you want to use Flash etc you need DW.
Do you think Popcorn knows how to use FX?
I know I dont. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Is FP combatible with DW?

Q [ DW guy. LOL]

Do you think Popcorn knows how to use FX? <font color="red">Do I care? </font color>
I know I dont.

Is FP combatible with DW? <font color="red"> LOL, you are kidding right? That is like asking if notepad is compatible. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif </font color>

Q [ DW guy. LOL] <hr /></blockquote> Your entire reply leads me to believe you have no idea what you are talking about. Especially the portion about "if you want flash you need DW". /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

eg8r &lt;~~~Didn't think Q would understand the humor

First of all, I,m no expert, but I have made web sites with FP including video files. I have both DW and FP. For me, FP is much simpler to work with, due to my limited knowledge. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
I asked Popcorn about FP because if he was using it, it would be easy to go through it step by step.
You know, help the guy out.

The point is, if you are making a simple web site you dont need all the functions of DW, FP is sufficient and simpler to work with.
