    Real Audio/Real Video

    Real Audio or Real Audio/Video is available for an extra charge. See our fee schedule for details.

    Real Audio is a real time audio transmission/player system. A digital audio stream is transmitted from the server over the Internet to the destination and played immediately, rather than being stored to disk first and then played.

    Each audio clip requires two files: a metafile with extension .ram, and the digital audio clip itself, with extension .ra.

    The .ram file holds one or more lines of ASCII text, each of which references the .ra file to be played when the .ram file is accessed by the browser.

    Entries in .ram files have the form: 


    Place your .ram and .ra files in the realaudio subdirectory under your web directory. Remember that .ram files must be uploaded in ASCII mode while .ra files must be uploaded in BINARY mode. You may then access these files via a web browser at:

    Miva - HTML Script (for qualifying accounts only)

    Miva makes building dynamic, data driven web pages as easy as HTML. You can quickly develop interactive web pages that are 100% browser independent. Miva runs on the web server, interprets the Miva tags and outputs pure HTML to the browser. You can also use Miva to output Javascript and other browser languages, and use the built-in database to easily manipulate and publish data. 

    Full documentation and usage support for HTML Script can be found at Miva offers a variety of features and you should visit their site for more information. 

    We are running version 3.0 of HTML Script. The following is what you will need to know for use on your domain. 

    The script being called is "miva", which is in your cgi-bin. The active pages (pages with .hts or .mv) need to be placed in your root www directory, not in subdirectories. A sample URL call for this would be as follows: 

    HTMLSCRIPT has a variety of pre configured products that require path information we have preconfigured miva to automatically look into the /home/domain/htsdata directory for data files, If data is placed in this directory a example call would be as follows 


    <export file="file.dat"> 

    To call Htmlscript thru the secure server use the following: 

    Machine should be replaced with the name of the system your on, ie pan, artemis, osirus, ect . . .
    More On The Miva Engine.
    The Miva Engine makes building dynamic web sites as easy as writing HTML. Quickly develop server and browser independent dynamic sites using the XML standard. Dynamic sites that integrate scripting, database, and commerce can be developed and tested on a Microsoft workstation and deployed on Microsoft or Unix servers.

      HTML    SGML    XML    HTTP 
      POP3    SMTP    ISAPI    CGI 
    Miva runs as a pre-processor on the web server, interprets the Miva tags and outputs standard HTML, XML, Javascript, and other user interface code to the browser. Use the built-in database and ODBC interfaces to easily manipulate and publish data. Anyone that knows HTML can use Miva. 

    Miva (Htmlscript 3.0) tags are XML compliant and include:
