    I am making an intro page for my site with a video, can annyone tell me how I can make the page re-direct after the video is finnished.

    I have tried using an auto-redirect after 30 secconds but people with fast connection will end up waiting for the redirect and people on a slow connection might not see the whole video depending on how long it takes to load.

    Help very much appreciated. Thankyou.

    I can help you with Flash for just a small fee if you would like

    75 credits sound fair?
    I would need a link to the video, or if you might change it later the screen dimensions

    I can get it to you within the hour or so, if I can get the quicktime movie.
    since to make it be able to change the video later, you need it in flv format.

    I can convert it to flv format myself.
    Edit:
    belay that I downloaded riva flv encoder but it won't work on my PC for some reason. I tried to attach the movie but it sais invalid filetype so u can't have it unless I email it to you (it's only 756kb).

    That all sounds fair, I would have done it, but diablo got there first.
    I don't think there is another way (at least not an easy one)

    Thank so much, it works! U get 75 credits + 150 credit bonus for getting it done in two days. (225credits total)
    Out of interrest why has the video lost quality and got smaller in the conversion? If u can make the video have better sound quality and not have the small white outline (I am using a black background so it's noticeable) I will give an extra 200 credits.

    you place this code
    Code:
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="320" height="240" id="video" align="middle">
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
    <param name="movie" value="[COLOR="Blue"]video.swf[/COLOR]" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /><embed src="[COLOR="Blue"]video.swf[/COLOR]" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="320" height="240" name="video" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
    </object>
    where ever you like the video to be seen. also place the video.swf file in the same directory.

    If you do wish to move the video.swf file, change the text in blue, (look above) should be 2, to the new directory.

    the XML file MUST stay in the same directory.

    To Edit the XML file, just change
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    
    <linktop>
    	<link>
    		<url>[COLOR="Blue"]http://www.google.com[/COLOR]</url>
    	</link>
    </linktop>
    
    <!-- Notes -->
    <!--
    for the URL, make sure to include http:// to the site that you are linking to
    -->
    the text in blue to your URL, make sure to include the 'http://www..." in it

    I did all that, it plays the video but it doesn't re-direct. I'm rubbish at making websites how about I just send the whole site and you make it work for me? I'll pay.

    I attached how it should look. You need to include the .swf and the .xml in the same directory as the index.html


    correction: I haven't attached it yet since it is having a problem, and my website is currently down..so I'll get it up ASAP
