Very well done, Bev
Welcome to the 'Posh Linkers' club Grin

I now do it that way for all my inks - but it took a while to get used to - now it's automatic!

It is a very similar arrangement to show a thumbnail from the Media gallery and make it click bigger! Grin





BTW I just made that up - 'Posh Linkers' club

It plays in WMP - it shows an eagle (Mum?) manhandling a huge stick - or is that eagle handling Grin
Works fine for me, Pat

Do you happen to be using a Mac computer ?
It won't open on a Mac unless you have FLIP4MAC installed because the video is a WMP format.
Once you have Flip4Mac installed the video will automatically open in a stand-alone Quicktime movie window.

Flip4Mac is available here http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/v ... ktime.html

No not a mac, Can't figure out why when I click on the link I get black Use Windows XP. Will have to figure out why I get black. I can see it direct in Media gallery Will isn't this a hoot. I was using Firefox to try & open the link, opened up IE 7 guess what. I can see it on there. So I guess I'll toodle over to Hornby & do the posh over there. Now I have to figure out why FF isn't letting me see it.Now 1 thing it's another. Were you using IE by any chance to see it?

Glad to know you found a browser that would open it.
Odd that Firefox won't work --- Interesting.

I'm still trying to figure out why my videos are not working properly, maybe it's the way I'm putting them in Ok lets try a few things
I give up still shows black on FF. But I hunted around for other people that had video links to theirs in media gallery & I had no problem seeing them On Firefox. I must be doing something wrong when I'm putting them in. That's the only reason I can think of

Not sure if it's relevant, but I normally can't see videos in the Media Gallery with Firefox - it gives me an option of downloading them, and if I do that, then I can see them. I think it's likely a setting in one of those massive file-association settings places - but haven't been able to work it out.
