Is this an older version of frontpage?

.asf is a deprecated extension for what we now know as windows media. If I recall correctly, you can rename a .wmv or .wma to .asf and it will still work correctly. Yes, I just tried it - it works fine in calling the windows media player.

However, you shouldn't need to do this. Just give frontpage a .wmv, it should be happy. If it isn't, you can rename as above.

Cons of using a deprecated file extension: Well, there are people out there using substitute media players that might not correctly identify .asf as a windows media file. Maybe, I don't really know.

PS. None of this is true "streaming" unless you are using WM server, which will negotiate a connection with the client and start playing almost immediately. What you will probably end up with is "progressive download" in which the player starts the media as soon as a few seconds are downloaded.

There's been lots written on this subject. Search is your friend. Here's a sampling:

Frontpage doesn't care whether your video is flash or wmv, your audience does. Depending on which version of frontpage you have it will have different built-in html snippets to handle the different external files, eg. myfile.flv, myfile.wmv, etc. However, you can always add your own html code to accomodate something that frontpage doesn't handle natively.

PS. It isn't just WM that does progressive download without a streaming server - that's what flash does too...
