Can you make a playing iWeb page ?

I made a nice set of two iWeb pages as Xmas greeting & annual letter (web.mac.com/vivekawn). But I would have been more satisfied if the home page could have opened with Winter Wonderland (it is a favorite). Trying to do this has, so far, given me a way to do it as I don't want it as link to start but the music opening automatically as the page unpacks itself.
Have anyone of you done and if so, how did you do it ?
Happy New Year!

Viv,
Kyn Drake has a really simple method for doing this outlined here:

(Beware of the crab... )
As long as you don't mind doing a little post publish editing of your .js files, it's fairly easy to do in this manner also. You will find them in this path on your iDisk, using the Go menu in Finder:
Go/iDisk/MyiDisk/Sites/iWeb/Nameofsitefolder/Page_filesFolder/Page.js
Open the .js files for that particular page on your iDisk with any text editor (I like Taco, and it's free) and make the following changes to the script code that controls your movie: (you will find the movie code near the top of the page in the .js file)
Change autoplay="false" to autoplay="true"
Change loop="false" to loop="true"
Changing controller value="true" to controller value="false" will remove the controller from the page entirely. Make these changes in both sets of tags, (object and embed).
Make the changes and just "Save". Clear your browser cache and you should see the changes take effect immediately. Bear in mind you will have to make this modification each time you republish your site. You can also save this modified .js file and replace the republished file with it, as long as no other changes were made to the page in iWeb.

  • Can you make a poster in Pages 20X30in?

    Can I make a 20X30 inch poster in Pages on my MAC?

    Yes, you can. In the Document Inspector, click on Page Setup.
    In Page Setup, choose "Any Printer", and Manage Custom Sizes.
    In the Custom Size dialog, click the + sign at the bottom of the list (list may be empty) and name the new entry "Poster".
    On the right side of that dialog set your Length and Width. When you are done with that, click OK.

  • HT5557 Can you make a book with Pages app. to transfer to iBook on the iPad?

    I have a very old manual of Westinghouse Radio schematics (1936-1937).I have scanned the manual in pdf's and wanted to take certain models to put together as one "book" for my own reference. iBook sees each page as a book when I export to it.
    What would be the best way to put them together so iBook sees one book with pages inside?

    I understand.
    I would like to keep the phone as secure as possible from unauthorized use by keeping it locked and disabling siri on the lock screen.
    However I would like my children to be able to use the phone app to call mom.  Seems like this could be accomplished by permitting the owner to imput several numbers that can be called from the locked screen.  Another solution would be to limit Siri's access when the phone is locked.

  • Can you make a code lock on a app, so kids can play on it put not reed mails

    Can you make a code lock on a app, so kids can play on it put not reed mails

    You can't lock an app other than the few apps in the Restrictions:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4213
    unless it's a third-party app and it provides a password mechanism. You can, however, lock the iPad into a mode where only a single app chosen by you can run. See:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5509
    If you want your kids to be able to use multiple apps, then you can't lock your Mail app and keep the out of it, and the only way to lock Messages is to turn it off in the Restrictions.

  • IWeb - Can you make a blog? Can you make a title and let people respond?

    Can you make a title and let people respond?
    For Example:
    'Do you like my new Book?'
    Comment:-
    ???

    Yes. You can add forms to you page which send you emails with the information the visitor put in the form. There are two types, one that you create with Form Action Code that you create and put in an html snippet, Form Action comment form, and more sophisticated forms that are created at a 3rd party site and embedded into a page with an HTML snippet and iFrame code as in this demo page: Embedding Forms & Encoding Email Addresses. With the second method you can set the form to any color combination you'd like. Another example of the Wufoo type is at the bottom of this demo page: QT Movie w/o Quicktime.

  • When i try to upload a .mts file from my Sony camera to Premiere Pro CC it refuses to play the audio! Ofcourse i could convert every single clip but it takes tons of time. How can i make Pr play audio track properly?

    When i try to upload a .mts file from my Sony camera to Premiere Pro CC it refuses to play the audio! Ofcourse i could convert every single clip but it takes tons of time. How can i make Pr play audio track properly?

    Does it not play at all or cannot you get the audio in the timeline?
    Did you copy the entire card to the hdd and then imported the file via the Media Browser?
    Did you source patch the audio tracks?

  • Can you make captions for a slideshow?

    can you make captions for a slideshow? otherwise how can i rename the photo so that i can select view titles in the slideshow and use it as a caption?

    Jim lo:
    Welcome to the Apple Discussions. You can't make captions with iPhoto. You can edit the title of a photo by selecting it and then going to the Info window at the bottom of the Source pane, the "i" button, clicking on the title field and enter what text you'd like.
    If you plan on using the slideshow in iDVD then those titles will not show as they will be lost in the "overscan" area that is common to all movies played on TV. You can create the slideshow in iMovie and have lots of control over titles and subtitles and greater control of the audio track, cut, fade in/out, etc.

  • Can I make a document in pages on my iMac and then export it too pages on my Ipan?

    Can I make a document in pages on my Imac and then export it too my Ipad in pages?

    Welcome to the Apple community.
    Sure you can, just create the document in pages as you always do on your Mac, once it is complete, drag it to the Pages section at iCloud.com on your web browser. It will then sync to and be available in the list of documents when you open pages on your iPad.

  • Can you make a continuous slideshow from multiple folders in iphoto?

    can you make a continuous slideshow from multiple folders in iphoto?

    Greetings,
    Yes you can but you have to add the images from the various events or albums to a single slideshow. 
    Create your slideshow, then drag all the images you want in that slideshow to the slideshow on the left hand side.
    -- http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=iPhoto/9.0/en/pht6d9758b0.html
    When you go to play the slideshow you can click on settings and make sure the "repeat" option is checked.

  • Can you make a new category in the movie library?

    Can you make a new category in the movies library?  I put my home movies  into the "Home Videos" category.  I put movies into the "Movies" category.  I would like to make a new one.  "Work Videos" .  Is this possible?

    You Cannot make a new Movie Media Kind, they are set by apple to be Movie and Home Video. However under Genre you could create a new Genre and call it whatever you want by typing in the Genre Box in the Get Info , Info page. This will then be available for future selections.
    I am sure there are other ways to achieve what you want with different naming convention - it is up to you but you cannot add another Media Kind like Home Video

  • How can i make quicktime play avi. files?

    pls..how can i make quicktime play avi. files? because i have some avi files on my ipod or data cd but i can't play them on my laptop. pls help me..
    and also, im trying to make a music video but i dont how to select different clips from a movie.

    Hello,
    You can get from Microsoft, the flip4mac free player. Since Windows Media Player for Mac is no longer supported, this is the way to go.
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/wmcomponents.mspx
    In my opinion, it is by far the best solution for playing .avi or .wmv files, because you get all the advantages of Quicktime.

  • Can you make a Keyword Collection for entire event library?

    Hello all,
    So you make an event, and you can make Keyword Collections for that particular event, such as "WS" or "Person 1" or "Indoors"... But...
    What if those keywords apply to other events?
    I am making video content for a particular company. I shoot stuff one day import as an event. The only content that I produce is for this company, so you can imagine there are going to be similar themes across mutable events...
    As you know this is how it is organized >
    DRIVE
    >2012
    >Event
          >Keyword Collection
    This is how I want to get organized>
    DRIVE
    Master Keyword Collection
    >2012
    >Event
         >Keyword Collection
    > Here is an example of how I think It should be
    DRIVE
    "All Interior Shots"
    >2012
      > Event
         >Interior Shots
    So can you make a Keyword Collection for entire event library?
    Can some one please explain if is this is possible? If not please update!

    Andy,
    Yes you can but that feature only works if you are searching a single event (Pretty Cool/Useful), Creating a smart collection based on what you tick off in the dialogue box... You will get an error message if Searching the drive itself:
    LOL
    I did some playing around...
    I created a new event
    Then I ran a search, with Keywords ticked off, Ticking off mutable Keyword Collections.
    Then dragged the results into my new event.
    This in effect created "saved search results" but Final Cut started copying clips to that event folder that was created on my external HD. I was hoping that It would generate alias files...
    I also...
    Created a new project
    Ran the Search with Keywords
    Dragged all clips into the project..
    This also in effect created  "saved search results" but not really what I was hoping :/
