Hi from Paris,
I have a Revolution demonstration program that I want to show to
potential buyers. The demo stack is called by a Mac or PC SplashStack,
so I effectively have two stacks.
I could send it by CD, but this takes time, but it would be so nice to
allow them to download it from my On-Rev server. The program displays
lots of text and graphics (all internal), so no problem there,
However, the user can play any of a large number of MP3 song files,
which are in an external (to the Rev program) folder, also on the
Can I play an MP3 file in the user computer from a folder on the On-
Rev server, or download it (about 5 megs) first, and then play it ?
Because this would make all of our song files available (not very
intelligent), I would like to modify my splashstack to ask for a
password, and only download the music to accepted users.
And finally, how does the user download my program (Mac or PC version)
from the On-Rev server ? It might seem easy to some of you, but I've
never done this before !!
This represents rather a lot of questions, but if I get answers here,
I promise to go away and not bother you guys for a long time :>)
May I add that these are the sort of answers which I would love to
find in a Rev cook-book.
OSX Leopard, Rev 3.0, build 750, On-Rev access.
