    trouble with ASX files

    I converted a video file to an ASF file, then followed your instructions to create an ASX file. When I double click on the ASX file, Windows Media Player opens, but I get an error message that reads "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the associated playlist is not valid." What does this mean and what did I do wrong?

    Try putting a space and forward-slash just before the closing bracket in the href tag, like so:

    <ref href="videofilename.asf" />

    If it doesn't work, can you show us the URL?

    trouble with ASX files

    Now it's telling me that I need to update Windows Media Player, but I have the latest release, plus I played an ASX file from someone else earlier today. Go to www.lazys.net/lsm/stallions.htm and scroll to the bottom to the link on the left that says "test video". Thanks.

    Change the following line in your ASX file:
    <ASX version="#">
    to:
    <ASX version="3">
