How do I configure HTTP Streaming for Audio/Video files?

The following article explains how to configure HTTP Streaming for your site. HTTP streaming gives you the ability to play an audio or video file directly on your website. This feature is supported on all of our plans. You simply upload the necessary file(s) and add a small section of code to your site.

To configure HTTP Streaming for Audio/Video files, please follow these steps:

  1. Upload the audio/video file(s) to your website using an FTP program. Instructions for using an FTP program can be found here.
  2. Add the following code to the webpage, based on the type of file you are streaming:
    • Video streaming:
      <embed src="mymovie.mpg" CONTROLS="imagewindow" CONSOLE="video" width="320" height="240" autostart="TRUE">
    • Audio streaming:
      <embed src="mymusic.mp3" CONTROLS="audiowindow" CONSOLE="audio" width="200" height="100" autostart="TRUE">

The above code will add the audio or video file to your page and will automatically run the file.

Note: The person viewing the page through a browser will need to have the appropriate software installed on their machine to run the file. For example, if you wish to stream a real media file the person will need to have real media installed on their computer so that their browser can play the file.
