Codebase Location in NetShow Object Tag to Detect NetShow
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft NetShow version 2.0
This article discusses if a reliable codebase location at Microsoft exists that I could put into the NetShow object tag (in an HTML page) that would cause the browser to detect when NetShow is not present and go load it for the user.
Microsoft NetShow 2.0 includes support for all WWW browsers in some form. The following shows an example of HTML code to demonstrate how to add the player control to a web page so that any browser can interpret it.
In Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.x and later, you can use an Object tag to show a Video embedded into the HTML code. The NetShow player (NSPLAY.EXE) includes a plugin that will work only with 32-bit versions of NetScape and the Embed tag. For other browsers, you can use the NOEMBED tag to display a link to an .ASX file and activating the link will spawn the stand-alone player.
You can find more information about the NetShow client OCX and the NetScape plugin in the Client SDK documentation that is part of the Content Creation Station Documentation installed by the Nstools.exe file.
