Defines a URL string appended to the front of URLs sent to the Microsoft Windows Media Player control.
<BASE HREF=" URL" />
This element defines a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) string appended to the front of URL-flip URLs sent to the WMP control. URL-flippingis a scripting mechanism that causes the WMP control to open a new URL in a browser or browser frame when it receives a script command.
The BASE element is similar to a home directory for relative links. It only affects URLs sent using script commands as part of the content stream that is playing in the WMP control.
A BASE element defined as the child of an ASXelement becomes the default for the entire Advanced Stream Redirector (ASX) file. A BASE element defined in an ENTRYelement overrides any BASE element in the parent ASX element (for that ENTRY element only).
If the HREF parameter does not end with a '/' character, the WMP control appends one to the end of the string.
