Can a menu link to .html pages?

I want to make a DVD that will start with a video introduction, and upon finishing the brief minute or so intro, it will display a menu screen.
1.) I would like the menu buttons to link to .html pages saved on the DVD. So after clicking on a link from the menu, it will open up a full-screen .html page.
2.) Each .html page will link to other .html pages and have embedded images, and short quitcktime video clip links that will open up in small windows when links are clicked.
3.) I need to have a link on each .html page that links back to the main dvd menu.
Can this be done? Any issues with doing something like this?
Thanks in advance for any advice!!!!

Mark - you need to read up on [email protected] if you intend doing this through DVDSP. Yes, it is all possible, but you haven't quite got the way it works correct.
What happens is you embed a URL into a menu. When the menu is accessed (typically by a button from a previous menu) the link is activated and the resource is launched. This opens in a window in front of the DVD playback window. The DVD player continues to run in the background - so you need to allow for that when returning. The viewer will simply close the web browser window and be back at the DVD window - by then you should have made the @ccess menu 'time-out' and return to the previous menu.
You set up the HTML file (or whatever file you are using) in a folder on your Mac, and place it all within a parent folder. From within DVDSP you then use the property Inspector for the disc itself (click not he disc icon in the outline view) to specify a ROM folder. You browse for the parent folder you just created. Everything inside that will get added to the root level of the DVD, which is why you place your HTML inside a folder within that parent folder (unless of course, you don't mind your HTML file/s being scattered all over the root of the DVD).
You set the URL for the @ccess link by using the following path format:
file:///DVDname/ParentFolderName/filename.extension
So if your html file is called 'index' and it is in a folder called 'ROM' on your DVD called 'Project' then the URL you set in the menu would be:
file:///Project/ROM/index.html
This should then get activated (as long as you have enabled [email protected] links in your DVD Player software).
However, there are some caveats.
Whilst this will work quite well on a Mac, a PC user will have a wildly varied experience - for some the links will work. For some the links won't work, and for some, all links will launch the moment the first link is encountered... ALL PC users will need to install the [email protected] software (which will be on the built DVD by default (DVDSP includes it there for you), unless they have already done so previously (unlikely).
In order to maximise the experience for PC users and Mac users you should consider using Sonic's 'eDVD' to add the hyperlinks. This makes use of the Interactual player which has a far higher installed base in PCs, but will need installing in Macs. Again, this gets included on the disc when you use eDVD.
eDVD is a PC only app - you'll need to build your project and transfer the VIDEO_TS folder to a PC, add the links and then burn it to disc or use software such as Gear Pro to create a DLT. Hopefully Jim (WTS) will see this and give more advice on how to use eDVD.
Getting [email protected] working on a PC is a tricky thing to do - a lot depends on the PC software spec, and since you can't govern the user's choice in this, you are walking a tightrope of compatibility.
Of course, you could simply set some text into your menu to say that there is additional content on the disc, and let the user browse to it at their leisure instead of relying on embedded links...

  • How link from html page to a specific frame in flash cs5 as3

    Hi!
    I'm kinda new around here. I am interested in knowing how to link from a specific html page to a specific frame in flash cs5 as3.
    I have a website that I originally began to design in flash but later started developing new pages for it in html. The flash part of it has several pages on different frames and I have created links from the flash part to the other html pages, but, I can only link the html pages back to the main flash home page, and not the other pages in the flash part of the website.
    I have read that in cs3 it was possible using the flashvars skip variable, but I don't know how to do it. I have not yet seen any working examples and I could not find any instructions / tutorials online for cs5.
    Can someone help here?

    add a query string, to the swf's embedding html, with variable/value indicating the frame you want to display in your swf.  add a javascript function to return the query string (or entire url), call the javascript function from flash using the externalinterface class.  and finally add code to your swf to parse the returned url or query string, parse it and then direct your timeline to the appropriate frame.

  • Trying to link a html page in AS3

    THis is likely a literal case of helping yourself... See your other posting and leave out the part where you try to size the window...

    Hi,
    According to http://help.sap.com/javadocs/NW73EHP1/SPS14/CE/wdr/com.sap.wdr/index.html there are only two types of scopes APPLICATION_SCOPE  and TASK_SCOPE.
    My guess is that they both rely on browser cache somehow.

  • Linking collapsable spry menu to other html pages

    Hi,
    I dont seem to be able the link the subject within my
    collapsible, to another html page.
    Surely it not hard, can someone explain how I do this, Im
    having a blonde day.
    Thanks in advance

    Thanks.
    I'll try my best to keep replying although I cannot guarantee further responses and no-one else here can help you further without those details.
    Several points:
    See http://www.projectseven.com/products/menusystems/pmm2/ug-examples/includes/index.htm
    (The instructions relate to a commercial product but the principles apply to every SSI.)
    Your include statement is <!--#include file="Includes/thiswillwork.shtml" -->
    The .shtml is required for the parent file to tell the server to parse the Include
    In other words, the parent page should read http://www.yourdomain.com/index.shtml - and every page which has an Include statement must have a .shtml extension. (The article linked above discusses alternatives to this requirement if you talk to your host)
    Then the include reads <!--#include file="Includes/thiswillwork.html" -->
    The include file extension can be anything provided it's correctly linked from the parent page.
    Also, with nav bars, you'll be calling them from every page of your website so you need a site root relative reference, not a document root relative one, so that the include file is correctly referenced from every page of the website regardless of its position in the folder structure.
    i.e. <!--#include virtual="/Includes/thiswillwork.html" -->
    Note: the "file=" changes to "virtual=" and the crucial forward slash in front of Includes.

  • Flash button - linking to HTML page - weird problem

    There could be a really easy solution for this, but I can't
    figure it out. I have a simple button that links to an anchor
    within an HTML page. Here the actionscript for the button:
    on (release) {
    getURL ("test.html#two");
    when the button is pressed, the HTML page comes up but only
    to the top of test.html. The '#two' is not passed to the URL .
    Seems like everything after '#' is ignored. How can I get around
    this?

    hi
    on(press)
    getURL("path of html page");

  • Can I add a custom .html page as a separate page within my site?

    I'm creating a website for my local baseball association using iWeb 1.1.2.
    I'm given several .xls files for schedules, rosters, etc. and I can save them as an .htm/hmtl page.
    But within iWeb, it doesn't look like I can import them as a separate page within my site.
    Is this possible? I suppose my only option is to create an external link to the pages correct?
    Will iWeb '11 allow me to do this?
    Thanks!

    Yes, you can in one of two ways:
    1 - put the custom page on your server and embed it into one of your iWeb pages using an HTML snippet and iFrame code as done in this demo page: Embed a Site Within an iWeb Page.
    2 - put the custom page on your server and in iWeb create a totally blank page, name it for the custom page and add the following redirect code in an HTML snippet:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    parent.window.location = "URL TO THE CUSTOM PAGE"; </script>
    Thanks to Cyclosaurus for this code
    When the visitor clicks on the page in your iWeb navbar they will immediately be redirected to the custom page.  You'll need to add a link on the custom page to send them back to your iWeb site.
    If you modify/update the custom page it will be automatically updated in your iWeb site without having to open iWeb.
    UPDATE:  3 - or add an HTML snippet to on of your pages and put the HTML code from the custom page into it.  That will display the custom page on your iWeb page.

  • Apple Script/Program start through link on HTML page

    Dear Apple Gurus
    Probably I'm asking something silly, but I don't know any other way to solve my problem.
    I have to do some training videos about the finder and system tools. To have it easy, I would like to ad some buttons to the project where you can start an apple script which does execute some commands just explained in the video. Untill know I'm intend to do the hole thing inside QT but maybe a HTML page does the job too.
    My problem is now, how can I start a AppleScript out of a Movie or HTML page.
    Is this possible at all or are there any other solutions to to the job?
    Best regards
    Thomas Thaler

    Hi Thomas,
    Yes, you play movies in a smil presentation.
    You can define as many regions as you want. You difine regions in the layout:
    <layout>
    <root-layout background-color="blue" width="320" height="290"/>
    <region id="videoregion" top="0" left="0" width="320" height="240" fit="meet"/>
    <region id="textregion" top="240" left="0" width="320" height="30"/>
    <region id="linkregion" top="270" left="0" width="320" height="20"/>
    </layout>
    I got part of this from the internet, but here's a quick explanation. The root-layout part defines the whole area. Within this area you have regions. The first region defines the video region and you can give it any id. The origin of the screen is upper-left. fit="meet" means the the movie will be proportional to fit the whole movie. You can change it to other parameters (read the link from the last post). So here, three regions are defined. The first is for the movie (I used a slideshow from iPhoto), the second is for captions in the middle, and the third region is for the link region at the bottom of the screen. You can use any region as a link. Within these regions you place your movies, text, etc. (see the link for more types).
    You next place your types in the body:
    <body>
    <par>
    <!-- VIDEO -->
    <video src="slideshow.mov" region="videoregion" id="mov"/>
    <!-- CAPTIONS -->
    <textstream src="caption.txt" region="textregion" system-language="en" system-captions="on" title="english captions" alt="english captions"/>
    (a href="file://localhost/Users/kel/Desktop/linkapp" show="new")
    <text src="text.txt" region="linkregion" end="id(mov)(end)"/>
    (/a)
    </par>
    </body>
    video src says what type of object, slideshow.mov is the name of my movie. If you place the movie in the same folder as the smil file, you can use just its name like I did. Then you enter what region you want the movie in. The id="mov" part is to give this video a reference for later use. I used it to keep the text in the link area running until the movie ended. You don't need captions if you don't want, but if you do here's an example of my captions.txt file:
    {QTtext} {font: Arial} {justify: center} {size: 12} {backcolor:0, 0, 0} {timescale: 30} {width: 320} {height: 60}
    [00:00:00.00]
    Kelvin: Here is my movie.
    [00:00:04.15]
    {justify:left} {italic} Here is more text. {plain}
    [00:00:07.04]
    After 4 15/30 seconds the text changes.
    So altogether, I had five files in the same folder: the smil file (slidshow.smil - plain text), the movie (slideshow.mov), the caption text (caption.txt - plain text), and the text file for the link region's text (text.txt - plain text). The script application was on my desktop:
    "file://localhost/Users/kel/Desktop/linkapp"
    It's easy to get a local file url through applescript:
    set f to choose file -- the script app
    tell application "Finder"
    set the_url to url of f
    end tell
    and the the local file url is returned in the result.
    The movie needs work. I was playing around with the colors. blue is not a good background color.
    One thing I forgot to say is that you need to read more about the timing (duration). There are a lot of examples and tutorials on the Internet also. It's not that hard though. One thing you might have trouble with is getting repeats to work. I don't think they do.

  • Can't Edit Valid CSS/HTML page with DW

    I have a page that contains valid HTML and CSS but it is VERY

  • Attempting to link to html page

    I have made an fla for an intro but I want to create a link
    to click on that will take the viewer to the next page of the
    website, which is a regular html page. I have used the help example
    to apply the following actionscript to a button with a named
    instance of "enterBtn".
    // Attach to frame
    enterBtn.onRelease = function () {
    getURL("

    However, with the above code I get the following syntax
    error;
    **Error** Scene=Scene 4, layer=Glow Behind FrameBTN,
    frame=309:Line 2: Statement must appear within on handler
    enterBtn.onRelease = function () {

    getURL("

    "_blank");
    Can anyone help me please?
    Thanks!

    Hello.
    The error probably is because you wrote the code on a
    "button" type clip.
    If you selected the enterBtn in stage then typed your actions
    then try to change
    enterBtn.onRelease = function()
    to
    on(Release)

  • How do you make a menu link to child pages instead of just top-level pages?

    I want two menus on my pages - one along the top which links to the top level pages like About, Contact, Services etc. That's easy enough. I also want another menu down the left hand side which links to the sub pages under Services, but I can't find a way to do it. If you make the menu automatic it links to the top level pages. If you make it manual I can't find a way of adding the link to the sub pages I want. Any advice? I'm running the newest version of Muse on a MacBook Air.

    Hi Michael,
    I am afraid that there is no automated way to create a menu for the sub pages. You will need to create a manual menu and then use the hyperlink drop down to link the manual menu items to the pages. Select the menu item and click on the hyperlink drop down and choose the page.

  • Create an easy update menu linked to other pages?

    I've been googling like mad trying to find out how to do this. I need to have a separate HTML file with the rest of my site that has the Menu on it that I use twice on every page of my site. Each time I update the menu, I have to copy and paste it twice onto each page of my site This is very tiresome.
    I have tried the
    <!--#include virtual="menu.html"-->
    code before, but it does not display the menu on the page at all. My whole site is written in only html. Is there some way to update one base menu and have the copies of it update all at once without using templates? As I have seen written in other forums that did not help me, this may be described as "One menu for all pages". Adobe Forums seems to be the best forum to be posting this at.

    Sure it's doable, without having to use templates.
    You need to remember that the include file only contains the code for the menu - no other code on the page  (<body> </body etc is not allowed).
    What extension are you using on the pages that use the include... they need to be shtml pages or php pages if using php includes (which are very easy to use if your server supports php).  If they are html pages, then you need to make sure the server can parse html files as shtml pages.

  • Need RTF Editor which can be brought up from HTML page

    My application needs to be able to bring up a RTF editor in a html page and save the resulting RTF to the database in a BLOB. It appears that the email product in Oracle Collaboration suite does this. Does anyone know of software I can use to do this or any contacts in the Collaboration Suite group that I can talk to?

    I'm not extremely experienced as a JSP/Java programmer but here are my thoughts:
    It sounds like your basic requirements are fairly simple, but you are taking the long way around to get there. If it is a dictionary-style app and the administrator is of limited experience then you need to keep things simple.
    Why create pages to upload when you can create a template with JSP and insert the text data and the images from a form? Text and link info can be stored in a database and the actual image can be uploaded to a directory or put in the db if you know how. Java Server Pages (O'Reilly) has the image upload code you need.
    Am I on track here?

  • How can I create links to other pages in iBooks that will function in PDF?

    Hi,
    I know some people have asked previously how to create links to other pages of their book within iBooks. I having an issue with this myself that I haven't been able to resolve. I am able to create the links, and they seem to function within the program, however, once I export the document as a PDF file (the format in which I need to have this ebook!), the links seem to be non-functional. Does anybody have a fix for this?
    Thank you so much for any suggestions you may have!! I really need to figure this out for my client.
    Regards,
    Meggyn

    Exporting as a PDF does alter/lose/remove certain functions. Adobe Acrobat has its own page navigation system.
    A lot of the hidden engine of iBooks Author is basically very similar to building a website! so links and books marks are an "internal" function.
    IF you  have Acrobat and not just the Adobe Reader, you can make links.  I have never needed to try, but  I see a working link related index  in the many software manuals  I have.
