    Linking to a video

    I cant figure out how to link a video I uploaded to my FTP site so my friends can watch it.

    Do I put it in my htdocs folder? Then use my domain name? for the link?

    I want them to be able to click a link then the video pops up. Any help would be appreciated

    You could put in in your htdocs folder or any folder beneath htdocs. If you put the video in the same directory as the web page linking to it you would do:

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/yourvideo.wmv">View Video Here</a>
    Autoload

    That would be the HTML code on a web page to show the link someone could click on to view. If you wanted to email a link or send and instant message to someone then it would just be the following in the address bar:

    Code:
    http://www.yourdomain.com/yourvideo.wmv
    Autoload

    It worked. Thanks. Sorry for sounding so dumb.
