Don't give up now. You are almost there. Try a simple html page, like a html version of "Hello World". No video yet. Add that later. You will need to embed a video player on the html page, just like youtube does. That is what that code above from youtube does. It is a if..then statement. IE uses a ...

Re: Firewall enabled/disabled from webbox

By default there are no filter rules. "Protect router" installs filter rules in the input chain to filter traffic destined to the router itself. "Protect LAN" - I think - installs filters that don't let traffic from WAN to LAN through unless it was initiated by a client on the LAN. All in all it's ...
