i want to embed a Quicktime-Movie on my Page.
I use the following code:
<embed src="Z:/09002_R/client/090423_1730/RO.mov" width="200"
Getting the file by an internet-adress erverything is fine, but it
doesn't apply by using the path from my hard-disk.
Well a file url looks something like this:
But if that works at all, it will only work on YOUR computer, or at
least one which has that file in that place on a local Z disk.
I think that most browsers balk at such a URL anyway when it's
received from a server.
Is their a special usage of describing path-names in rails?
If you want to serve up the file, you need to put it under the public
directory, say in a movies subdirectory, and then use a path like
I'm not sure what your directory structure means you could have a
subdirectory structure under public/movies the point is that the url
path should be relative to the public dir.
