Newbie in need of help with ASL dictionary
Hi, thanks for reading! Any help is greatly appreciated.
I would like to create a video dictionary for American Sign Language, one that would be as user friendly as possible and that would run from a CD or DVD drive. You can see the simple controls and layout of this website: http://www.aslpro.com/cgi-bin/aslpro/aslpro.cgi . I would like to produce a similar interface.
I would simply use HTML with embedded Flash videos, but IE will prevent ActiveX controls from running from a CD-ROM; the user would have to give permission to run it, and this dictionary needs to be accessible to a group of people who are not 'computer-savvy'. Hence, my problem.
I was thinking of a Flash-based EXE, but I am a newbie when it comes to programming and I am also working with a tight budget. ANY ideas and suggestions for how to pull this off would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time.

Install wordpress, use any of the multitude of fancy plugins they have related to videos and place the videos in your upload folder for the site. You then make a post...uplod a video, and embed it.
For the index a-z index plugin be perfect or name your posts,categorize and tag them.
So either set those posts to private or passworded, or do by email registrations if don't want others to see them.
If looking to do more of an application server that be a bit harder.
If know someone technically advanced enough can have them install phpmotion if need the ability for users to upload and a neat package.
Is ways of using psexec on a server for running .exe and so on, it also would run .bat files so the commands in the bat file can do anything your computer can do. Like for instance i have firefox opening and taking snapshots per server request.
I feel if you were about to do simple html, then wordpress is your best option. The example you showed uses cgi scripts.
