    .asx file will not open in browser

    Hi. I am having a problem getting IE to open a .asx file. Media Player opens the file just fine when I type in the complete URL. IE will not open media player whether I enter the URL in IE or click on a link. Also, I have the same problem with Navigator and Firefox except these browsers show the text of the .asx file while IE remains blank.

    Can you help?

    Thanks

    If a browser is showing the file text, it sounds like your server may not have the MIME type set correctly. The MIME type is needed to tell the server how to deal with a particular type of file.

    Can you ask your administrator if they have the correct MIME type for ASX files?

    If you want to post the URL I can also have a quick look and see what happens for me.

    .asx problem FIXED

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for your help. I suspected the mime type needed to be changed. I made the change and all is well.

    Thanks
