How do a share Webdvd file with a client?

Jun 7, 2013 3:06 AM

I have created a flash webdvd version of my encore dvd that I would like to share with my client.


Encore creates a 'folder' which when you open it and click on the 'Index' file it opens the webdvd up in your web browser IE Chrome etc and plays fine.


However when I try sharing the 'folder' on Google drive, dropbox etc the recipient can download the 'folder' but when they open up the folder and click on the index file the web browser opens up but there is nothing there, no webdvd.  I have tested this on my own machine and the same happens.  No pop up/blocks come up either.


Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?  How do others share webdvds with their clients?


Any advice gratefully received!

    Normally, you are uploading and playing from the web.  That is the simplest method.


    So I assume you are asking how they can get all the files to upload to their websites or to play locally.


    Sometimes the file transfer may be fine, but local settings prevent proper playback.


    I wonder here if up/download web magic is modifying any of the files or folder structure. You can have the client send a screenshot of the folder contents they end up with.


    If that is an issue, you might try zipping the contents so the web transfer won't modify anything.

    To my own website, building in Encore to the "non-steaming" type.


    Part of the problem is that you have to get the server info correct, and the upload may result in modification of files. We have also seen situations where the server mime settings needed fixing.


    How big is the zipped file? I could try it.

    That version should  be okay. No instructions beyond what is in help.
