A Link in a video?!?





ulruc
I have a good question for you all. I'm trying to set-up a new homepage for my web site for high speed computer (by giving the choice to my guests with a link)

In the high resolution setup, I want to put a video (not a video for download but only for design). And I want to give acces to my website by adding a link throught the video but it don't work.

I add my video with <object>...</object> and I tried to add the tags for my link outside of it without success.

Can someone help me on that point? And it need to work on both IE and FF since all the rest of my web site work well on both for now.

Thanks to those who will help me.

well...if all else fails, put a transparent image over your movie object and do a link on that...

How can I do that? I know that I can put two image on top of the other (but I still don't know how) but on top of a video.

Can you explain me how to do that so I can test it?

I have never included a video in any of my pages, so whther this will work, i dont know...

To place two image ontop of each other do the following:

Code:

<img src="background.jpg" style="position: relative; top: 0px; left: 0px; z-index: 1; height: 30px; width: 30px;"><br>
<img src="transparent.gif" style="position: relative; top: -30px left: 0px; z-index: 2; height: 30px; width: 30px;">


if im not mistaken, you can simply apply the style tag to you movie object...

the "z-index" decides whats at the front, and the "top: -30px" tells the browser to display the image 30 pixels higher up than normal. If there's anything you dont understand...just ask me...

Of course it is quite possible that nothing can go over a movie object, in which case the whole thing wont work...

My site has a movie that says "www.heavysledding.cjb.net", then switches over to "CLICK HERE TO ENTER THE SITE", and it keeps doing that, and you can click on the movie. But since it's a WMV file, I had to also make a link for people who don't have windows media player

you could always make it a flash video and have the link in flash... *Shrugs* Its not the best but, it would work

Flash is the only way I can think of.... streaming video in 8 is really easy, or just import it for frames so when it ends you click, the button....

Show me your <object> code. Maybe a possible mistake...

Yes I agree. You should put import the video into flash and then put an invisible button over it.
