I haven't messed around with my site in a while but I am curious as to posting an MPEG on the site and how do I reference it.
I am using Frontpage.

What I have are small MPEGS from a digital camera (running time of 10 seconds to 1 minute).
How would I put them into the site so that people can select that MPEG if they choose and open it to view.

After that is done, how would I reference this in a reply on Lawnsite?
For example, I have a leaf bailer collecting leaves in an MPEG. I want people on Lawnsite to be able to view it if they are interested. How do I put it on my website and what would be the way I reference it in my post so people are directed to it?
Clear as mud? Thanks for any help.

Hi Mow Ed,

"How would I put them into the site so that people can select that MPEG if they choose and open it to view. " Review this site. (http://www.its.unimelb.edu.au/courses/publish/HTML/IntroHTML7-2.html)

"How do I put it on my website and what would be the way I reference it in my post so people are directed to it?"

Why not use the vb code (http://www.lawnsite.com/misc.php?s=&action=bbcode) and link that file on your site directly from lawnsite?

If you make a direct link such as mymovie.mpg on a site, when a user clicks it, there default media player will open up and play the movie.

If you convert the movie to an .swf file, the movie will play in the browser.
