Morning All


I am just mulling over the theory of moving my database content to MySQL and I have a question that i have not been able to find an answer to, any help would be appreciated.


If you store what is known as container data, e.g. jpegs, pdfs, video files etc in the MySQL database, how would they be displayed on the Filemaker front end? Would the user;


- Still be able to see the Jpeg images.

- be able to read pdfs within filemaker.

- be able to play videos and audio within Filemaker.




Any help would be greatly appreciated.




Many Thanks
