    Default Video Jukebox

    I've been asked to create several presentation packages that will be run directly from a USB thumb drive(s).
    I'd like to use Initiostar's JS Video Player as part of the presentations. However, not being a student of code...any code, I have tripped at the first hurdle.

    In the Body section of either Page or Website (both work), there's a line that points to the source of the videos themselves. In the example, Gary points to a folder on his server. I understand that bit, and if I were doing the same, I could easily point to my own server. BUT, what do I put in that line for it to point to a folder that will reside on the USB?

    The original line reads: var source = 'https://initiostar.co.uk/assets/';

    A thank you to Initiostar for providing the info in the above link. I have a folder with your name on it, it is well used.

    It looks odd but try file:///<path>.

    Thank you for answering. I did try that and it didn't work. To be fair, the path was pretty long, so I whacked the videos directly onto the root drive...which also failed to work.

    However, before we delve deeper. The goal posts have changed, and the whole thing may well be moot. A slideshow with embedded videos has now been placed on the table and everyone appears to be nodding approvingly at the prospect. Bit boring if you ask me, but no one did.

    Chris, here is a solution you may be able to flex: CSS - JS - HTML5 - Local Filestore Video Player.xar.

    It handles any USB drive letter, which may change from machine to machine.

    Your page height needs to cover the height of the video.
    Though, it still works if the video is quite tall.
