Title

Viewing video clips in web publishing

Post

Maybe this isn't possible, but it seems as if it ought to be!  I have a network drive with a terabytes-worth of video files on it.  I'd like to have FM users search for files (by keyword, etc.) in a database available through instant web publishing and then click and get to view the video.  I have constructed a working database and a search returns a path\filename, but I can't figure out how to then launch the file.  I've used open URL script steps (using http and UNC) and container fields in a variety of ways and just can't get anything to work.  I can arrive at a number of solutions which work directly in Filemaker, but nothing which works through the web interface.  What am I missing?  I'm using 8.5
