Chapter 13. Working with Rich Media

Chapter 13. Working with Rich Media

You can add multimedia to your Web pages in much the same way you add GIF or JPEG images. Like images, some multimedia files are displayed inline—as part of the Web page. Others are displayed in their own windows.

Multimedia formats supported on the Web include QuickTime video, Flash, Shockwave, RealAudio, and a number of other sound, video, animation, and publishing formats. Adobe GoLive can also display and execute Java applets, JavaScripts, and (on Windows machines) ActiveX controls, though not as reliably as browsers do. In order for the user to view multimedia files, Web browsers must either directly support the appropriate format or support and have plug-ins installed. A plug-in is software that is automatically activated when a multimedia file is called for and which can play or display the files.

In this chapter, I cover:

  • Setting up plug-ins

  • Setting plug-in preferences

  • Configuring existing JavaScripts

  • Java applets

  • ActiveX controls
