    Ric can you check the MD5SUM I have for the WW2 file and see if it tallys with your copy? If not, I'll re download it.

    Also, how are you all giving this out to the teachers? I assume most of you are putting it on a network share, but do you then just give them a link directly to a network share?

    I have created a basic webpage which ATM gives links to each different category within the BBC Creative Archive, but i'm not very happy with it, it doesn't seem very professional. I'm toying with the idea of creating a hyperlink to each video and picture, but that will take forever.

    You could convert them to flash videos and embed a flash video player into some web pages.

    Thats a good idea actually.... is there any way of doing this easily without server side scripts though with regards to links? It's too early in the morning for me to be thinking of this, haha.

    Not too sure. You could probably create some fancy javascript for a webpage, or a vbscript to run yourself that would generate the necessary HTML for each one individually.

    Thinking about it, the first option is probably the easiest of the two.

    Yeah... i'm thinking ideally it'd have to be a single page as opposed to a different page for each video, but can't figure out how i'd do this without PHP etc.

    I'll have a go with google for a bit. Thanks!

    Hmm, apparently you can use XSPF playlist with the FLV Player I mentioned, so it should be even easier

    Do like they do on the newsgroups and split all the files up into parts and use par files to rebuild any problem files once downloaded.
