    Can ASP be used in streaming Multimedia??

    Hi

    I'm new to ASP and would like to know if ASP can be used to create a website for music downloads using Access as the database where the music files can be stored?
    I would also appreciate it if you would give examples of the codes involved for this or alternatively, sites where i can get a look at code examples that are directly related to this.

    Thank you.

    it wont be wise to store, music files or images in a database.

    You could store them in a folder and use a pointer in the db to refer to the file.

    This, asp can do

    I agree with Afrika, you can store images as binary in access databases, but they can slow your database down alot. I'd suggest either using SQL or following Afrika's advise.

    images are called BLOB, binary large objects.

    There are a couple of threads in this forum about them, generally its a bad design. I wont not advice you follow that route.
