Windows Media Video

This option is particularly useful for exporting movies of longer length. It is also recommended if you intend to publish your movie on video sharing websites, such as YouTube and Metacafe.

WMV format is commonly used for movie playback on Windows PCs. The software required to playback WMV files is installed on most Windows PCs.

  1. File Name
    Enter the video file name. You do not need to include the filename extension(.wmv).
  2. Adjust Size
    You can adjust the size of the movie to fit your specifications.

    Note: Please understand that there are differences between 'movie resizing' and the above option. This option attempts to stretch the movie to comply with the dimensions specified, while also maintaining the previous aspect ratio.

  3. No Audio
    Selecting this option will eliminate all audio from your movie.

Note: Depending on the option chosen, the video's dimensions will be adjusted as follows: in WMV format the dimensions must be divisible by a factor of 2. Demo Builder will automatically adjust your movie's size if it does not comply with the above specifications.

Embedding a wmv file in your web page

Embedding a video file is achieved by inserting a block of code in the web page's HTM. The example below shows the code for embedding a Windows Media file. Note that it uses two tags: <object> and <embed>. This is to enable maximum browser compatibility.You will need to set the file name (and other attributes if required) for both tags. Use true or false for the <object> tag, 1 or 0 for the <embed> tag.

To get started, all you have to do is copy the code below into your web page and replace 'mymovie.wmv' with your own file name.

<OBJECT ID="MediaPlayer" WIDTH="800" HEIGHT="600" CLASSID="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
STANDBY="Loading Windows Media Player components..." TYPE="application/x-oleobject">
<PARAM NAME="FileName" VALUE="mymovie.wmv">
<PARAM name="autostart" VALUE="false">
<PARAM name="ShowControls" VALUE="true">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="false">
<PARAM name="ShowDisplay" VALUE="false">
<EMBED TYPE="application/x-mplayer2" SRC="mymovie.wmv" NAME="MediaPlayer"
WIDTH="800" HEIGHT="600" ShowControls="1" ShowStatusBar="0" ShowDisplay="0" autostart="0"> </EMBED>
