I have freeway Pro (the latest version). My client wants to build a site that does not play off of the web, but on a local computer. It’s a simple home page with a looping video in the middle of it, links to multiple languages up top and buttons on the bottom that take you to pages that are mainly text and photo based.
Can a freeway built site run from a computer without internet and without freeway installed? How?
How do I insert a looping video in the middle of the screen if it is not embedded to someplace on the web (like youtube)?
No local intranet. I was thinking I would deliver a CD DATA, DVD DATA, External Drive or USB thumb drive. I think for best results (to keep the video playing smoothly), I would have them copy the files directly on their hard drive.
So I just publish to a local computer. What’s the procedure for doing that? I am just used to uploading to the web.
When the client goes to activate the site from a local folder on their computer, what do they click on to get it to run/activate? I assume it just loads on to their browser, right? Will it be full screen?
I want to keep this simple so it can play on most computers without any additional installations. How do I avoid PHP actions?
It sounds like I should also avoid flash video files. What kind of video file do you recommend and how to you place it into a web page (I am used to youtube imbedding)?

You do that already. It’s called your Site Folder.

They visit the index.html page (you can call it what you like as long as they know to ‘Start Here’.

Unless you are interacting with a database or trying to send an email/fill a form from within it you are unlikely to use any of these.

You can do that - just remember that the computer the site is viewed on will need internet access. Other than that the standard video formats (appropriate for the OS/Browsers that the users operate) will be fine.
