hmmm, do you mean all the movies take you the netlink page i threw in or do some take you to the movies themselves? this is what the code looks like when replaced a few links so there should at the very least 2 of the links on the main page should redirect to a movie :D
<area shape="rect" coords="133,376,225,409" href="hlp_content.htm">
<area shape="rect" coords="33,376,126,409" href="earthlink.htm">
<area shape="rect" coords="246,268,389,327" href="file://test1.sfd">
<area shape="rect" coords="339,182,484,242" href="file://test2.mp3">
<area shape="rect" coords="152,182,296,242" href="file://test4.Sfd">
<area shape="rect" coords="339,96,484,156" href="file://NETLINK.HTM"">
<area shape="rect" coords="152,96,296,156" href="file://test4.Sfd">

EDIT: Also could you just take a picture or two of it in action or what the netlink page loos like? sorry for asking you to do all this work :?

i cant get the videos to play but removing "file://" inn front of the mp3 works (i believe it was working before too)

something is off with your sfds. i was able to replace them with tiny original ones (800kb) and they played near instantly and without issue. hmm how are you making them? also 47mb seems quite large but it should work

Thats very interesting, well at least we know sfds can play off the disk. test1 sfd is a sfd taken right from sonic adventure and test4 is one i made. I took a video and made it 320 by 240 and really lowered the bit rate for video and audio and then used PES video converter to make them sfd's. Maybe you have got a better way to make sfds (would love to hear it!) just looked and test1 is very large but test 4 is quite small. Maybe you should replace test1 with this and see if it works

It be a shame if the s mb restriction is for on disk too :( aslo just to clarify when you put your own sfds on it and they worked did you alter any if the html? (like the file://?

thats the same sfd i tested with haha! i picked that one and bestbuy.sfd.

i just changed it [src="sadv.sfd"] no file in front, i believe you could but it would have to be [src="file://PWBROWSER/sadv.sfd"] which isnt a problem, just something to keep in mind.

Hey itsthinkingstill.

I have a original Browser 2.6. If I rip it /w Dreamshell and start it /w dreamshell (GDI) I got a black screen.

Did you hacked something in 1st_read.bin or something like that?

I also hacked around with Dreamkey 1.5. SFD plays. AXD not. 1st_read.bin plays START.ADX at the beginning. But if I link a .../proc/adx/pdwww/start.adx it doesn't seem to work. Player window comes up. I can press play. But no sound. Even the "hidden" test site (model, sfd, adx, vmu pics and scrollers etc.) doesn't plays the start.asx or another .adx. All other demo stuff works.
BTW: Dreamkey 1.5 works great as SDISO (~70MB).

Ideas welcome ;)

DreamKey 1.5 suxx. U can use it as mediasomewhat. It works online, too (DreamPi). But you have to enter every domain of website you want to surf to in a segment called NoProxyPage. Every site outsite this config will call the dreamportal (forgot the real name) proxy! And then the page isn't called up.

How did you get PlanetWeb 2.6 to work? For me it shows nothing except black screen if I use a GDItoDatatoISO repack -- not manual but with a GDI to Data toolchain. DreamKey works with it, PW 2.6 not.
