Adding a video link to your website is very similar to adding a link to a different web page.  The only difference is that instead of a page after the <a href> tag you will include a link to the video on your server.

First, let's go over creating a hyperlink.  If you have a page on your website that links to a new page, the link would like something like this:

<a href="/help/nextpage.html">Click here to go to the next page!</a>

To link to a video, the only difference is instead of the .html page you will like directly to the video.  In this example we will say there is a video called video.wmv in the Video folder on your server.  To link to the video, the HTML would look like:

<a href="/help/Video/video.wmv">Click here to play the video!</a>

Now when your visitors click on the link, it will automatically open the video from their browser.  The benefits of providing a video link is that there is less coding, however it will require that your website visitor have a video player installed on their computers.  We will go over how to embed a video in the next few sections.
