How to put embeded videos on websites


An "embedded" video means it is part of a Web page display rather than just a hyperlink that visitors click on to load the media in another window.

This is an ideal setup if you don't want viewers to leave your website to benefit from the video.
By using a few lines of HyperText Markup Language (HTML), you can embed a video from a sharing site like You Tube or insert your own file onto your website.

Click on the desired video image and copy the code found in the "Embed" section.
(If you do not see an "Embed" area, it means that the video maker does not want the file to be redistributed. You'll need to find another video).

Launch the HTML text editor and open the website page(s) where you want to embed the video. Navigate to your code window, position your cursor in the area where you want to add the movie and paste in the code.

Preview the page to make sure the video displays correctly.
Save the file.

Place the file on your Web host.

Embed Your Own Video

Place your video file, such as Windows Media Video (WMV), on your Web host in the same directory that houses your website files.

Make a note of the location so you can properly insert it on your page.
Launch the HTML text editor, open the desired website page and position your cursor in the code window where you want the video to display.

Enter the HTML "<embed>" code and specify a "type" that identifies what kind of video you have and a "src" that names the address of the file from step one. For example, the code to enter a Flash movie would look like this: < embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.yourdomain.com/video.swf" />

Preview the page to make sure the video displays correctly and then save your document.

Add the document to your Web host.
Embed a Video With HTML on My Website

Embedding video into your website with HTML allows your viewers, readers, or customers to watch a video without downloading it first.

A user could simultaneously read your copy while listening to or watching the embedded video. You can embed a video with HTML using Notepad or your preferred web editor.

Click "Start" and type "notepad" and then press "Enter."
Click "File," and then "Open."

Click the "File Type" drop-down menu and select "All Files and Folders" from the list of options. Locate your HTML file you want to embed the video into, select it and click "Open."


Scroll to the point where you want to embed the video.
Type the following in to the empty space:

<embed src="http://url.com/yourvideo.mpg" autostart="false" />
Replace "url.com" with the address of your video and "yourvideo.mpg" with the file name and extension of your video that you want to embed.

Change "false" to "true" if you want the video to automatically begin.
Close Notepad, and click "Save" when prompted. Upload the HTML page and you will have embedded video into the HTML of the site.

How To Check Website Links or Links in Emails To See If They Are Safe To Click...


How to identify if links are safe to click on,

In order for you to check the status of links in Emails, or on Websites, you will need to be using Firefox web browser and install an add-on called Dr. Web Anti-Virus Link Checker

Once you have downloaded and installed the above files, when you come across a website or email that includes web links that you look suspicious in anyway, then all you need to do, is right-click on the link within the E-mail or Web Page & then select the "Scan with Dr. Web" option that appears in the menu list as shown below:

e2c672d.png

When you click on the "Scan with Dr.Web" link, you will be presented with the following screen:

9745ef0.png

Once the link scanning is complete you will get the following displayed if the link is genuine & safe to click on:

55cfb3f.png

In the event that the link is unsafe, then you will receive the above notification box, but will be Red in colour to indicate that the link is considered to be potentially dangerous.

In the even that "Dr.Web" returns a "Unable to Identify Link" message, then it either means that the link has been either removed or has broken. However, if you read the information of the result, it usually indicates the reasons as to whether or not the link could be dangerous or not, and in such scenarios you should use caution before clicking on any such links that return such results.

I want to change my network password


Hi

To access and change any settings on your router, you must log into the router's URL. This will allow your computer to communicate with the router and access the router's main page. When accessing the router's URL, use the same computer that was used to install the router. If you do not know the router's URL, look for this information in the router's manual or on the manufacturer's website. After entering the URL into the web browser's address bar, press "Enter" or click the "Go" button on the browser.
Input the router's default username and password. Once you enter the router's URL into your web browser, a dialog box will appear requiring you to input the router's username and password. (Note that this password is not the network password.) Unless you have previously changed the router's username and password, input the default ones. Many browsers have the default username of "admin" and have the password set as "password" or have no password at all. To find out your router's username and password, check the documentation that came with your router or check the manufacturer's website. Click "OK" to proceed to the router's main page.
Access the router's security settings. Depending on your brand of router, there will be tabs or links on the router's main page. One of these will contain the page for changing your security settings. Find and click the link or tab. This page will contain several textboxes, one of which will contain the SSID (name of the network) and two textboxes for changing the network password.
Select an encryption type and change the network password. Most new routers offer WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) security or WPA security. To create a password using letters and/or numbers, you must choose the WPA security setting. Change the network password by typing in a new password in the two textboxes. When you are finished, click "OK."
Save your changes and log out. After changing the network password, you must click "Save" or "Apply" to keep the password change. Log out of the router by clicking the "Logout" or "Exit" link on the router's main page. If you leave the main page open for a certain period of time, you may automatically be logged out of the router.

Can't use either Microsoft Live Mail or Lookout Express v6 with Belkin Router. Can't send or receive email Can you tell me what the email setup is for either one? Both email programs probably use the same...


Ask COMCAST for the names of their POP-server and of their MAIL-server, and configure Outlook Express to use those names.

Microsoft Live Mail is "web-based" -- all you need to do is to web-surf to their web-site, login, and click "send/receive" or click "compose" and later "send".

Running script error


Method 1: Disable script debugging loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); If the only sign of a problem is the error message, and Web sites are working, you can probably ignore the error. Also, if the problem only happens on one or two Web pages, it might be a problem with those pages. If you decide to ignore the errors, you can disable script debugging.

Note If this problem occurs on more than one or two sites, do not disable script debugging. Go to method 2 now.

To turn off the Scripting Debugger in Internet Explorer 6, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Disable script debugging check box. and then click OK .
To turn off notification about every script error in Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to clear the Display a notification about every script error check box, and then click OK.
Method 2: Test a Web page from another user account, another browser, and another computer loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Use another user account, another browser, or another computer to view the Web pages that triggered a script error to determine whether the problem persists. If the script error persists, there may be a problem with the way the Web page is written. You can probably ignore the error and disable script debugging as described in method 1.

If the script error does not occur when you view the Web page from another user account, browser, or computer, the problem may be caused by files or by settings on your computer. Go to method 3 to continue to troubleshoot. Method 3: Verify that Active Scripting, ActiveX, and Java are not being blocked by Internet Explorer loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Active scripting, ActiveX, and Java are all involved in shaping the way information displays on a Web page. If these are blocked on your computer, it may disrupt the display of the Web page. Reset the Internet Explorer security settings to make sure these are not blocked. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Security tab.
  4. Click Default Level.
  5. Click OK.
Note ActiveX controls and Java programs are turned off at the High security level in Internet Explorer.

Try to open a Web page where you previously received a scripting error. If you do not receive the error, the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, go to Method 4. Method 4: Remove all the temporary Internet-related files loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); Every time that you open a browser to view a Web page, your computer stores a local copy of that Web page in a temporary file. If the size of the temporary Internet files folder becomes too large, some display problems may occur when you open Web pages. Periodically clearing the folder might help resolve the issue.

To remove all the temporary Internet-related files from your computer when you use Internet Explorer 6, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. Under Temporary Internet files, click Settings.
  5. Click Delete Files, and then click OK.
  6. Click Delete Cookies, and then click OK.
  7. Under History, click Clear History, and then click Yes.
  8. Click OK.
To remove all the temporary Internet-related files from your computer when you use Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the General tab.
  4. Under Browsing History, click Delete, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  5. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, under Temporary Internet Files, click Delete Files, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  6. Under Cookies, click Delete Cookies, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  7. Under History, click Delete History, and when you are prompted, click Yes to confirm.
  8. Click Close, and then click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Try to open a Web page where you previously received a scripting error. If you do not receive the error, the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, go to method 5. Method 5: Install the latest service pack and software updates for Internet Explorer 6 or Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); If you do not have the latest service pack or software upgrades for Internet Explorer 6 or 7, download and install them. They may contain updates that can help resolve the issue.

When I go onto a website and try to send my friends a link to the website none of my sent emails are received including the ones I send to my self on my own email


Check to make sure tat Parental Controls in the email client are OFF.

Another way is to use a free mail service such as yahoo.com or mail.com.

With the page you want to send link to open in one browser window or tab, open the free email in another tab and compose your message.

When you want to insert the link to the page you are sending, click on that tab, right-click in address bar, and choose "copy".

Now go back into mail site, right-click in message body, and select "paste".

The link should now mail without incident.

Good luck !!
