Here's an alternative, perhaps the easiest way to set up HTTP server on your own comp! (however limited to 30 days)
TZO Web Service!!!
= INSTALLATION =
1. Download TZO application at http://www.tzo.com
2. Once downloaded, run the installer (duuh!)
3. Follow the instructions (just say YES/I AGREE to everything)
4. When you're done, run TZO client.
= SETTING UP TZO =
5. Follow the instructions... until you come to a point where TZO ask for a key. Click on use Trial key and enter your email address. TZO will deliver a trial key in your email inbox.
6. Get that trial key from your email and use it on TZO client.
7. TZO should then ask about your connection and IP address. Just answer _you don't know the kind of IP you have_
8. Finally, you get to set up a domain name. For example, create:
9. There! Everything has been set up. Now the last thing you need to do is to make it online.
(don't close the app yet!)
= GETTING THE WEBSERVER & AMV ONLINE =
10. Create a special folder just for AMVs you plan to host. For example:
11. Place your AMVs into the folder there.
12. Switch to TZO, while the client shows WebServer tab, click on the Settings tab. There's a Folder textbox down there, just map it to the folder where you placed the AMVs. For example:
13. There is a Start button at the bottom-right of TZO client window. Click on it!
14. If the status text shows "The Web Server is running" Success! You are now a proud owner of cataclysm.tzo.com HTTP server! The End.
Q: How do I make a HTTP link to my music video?
A: Suppose you have a AMV called dbz_crawling.mpg, the URL should be:
This is an example. Substitute the domain & file name with the right one you've made. You can then test it on a web browser to see if it works.
- I highly recommend that you name all your AMVs using only lowercase letters and no space characters.
- Be sure to read the TZO manual, and look through all the tabs to find some of the hidden (and useful) options.
