Hopefully someone will be geeky enough to know how to help me out with this problem.
I'm building a website for my work, and I need several video files uploaded to it. I am building this site with Dreamweaver.
For this site I have videotaped several movies and then transferred them to Mpeg2 (m2v) format using Final Cut Pro. FCP is exclusively a Mac only program, and I'm PC. I believe that these are quicktime files, because each one comes in two parts- a .aif file (audio) and the actual .m2v file, which is the video.
When I try to add these files to my website via dreamweaver, I get that dialogue box that says "windows does not recognize this file type. Tell us which program made this file". So apparently I don't have a program on my machine that can read .m2v files. When I click on the "find it on the web" option, nothng happens.
How should I handle this? Should I try and re-encode my files to a different file type? Or is there a plug in I should have that I don't have already? (I have quicktime) Or is there any easier way to put movies on your website??
Acs and Cu, I'm looking at you guys here.
