Remarks

This element is the fundamental construct in a Windows Media metafile. The ENTRY element and its associated attributes define meta-information for a single, logical piece of content, called a clip. Child elements within the scope of an ENTRY element define media content for Windows Media Player to open (REF), information about the clip that Windows Media Player will display as text (AUTHOR, COPYRIGHT, TITLE), and other settings related to the clip. The REF child element links the content to be streamed for the parent ENTRY element. Though the script will not break, the ENTRY is meaningless without a REF child.

If the value of the CLIENTSKIP attribute is NO, the user cannot skip forward past the piece of content defined by the ENTRY element. This does not work if the child REF element references another metafile. Nested metafiles should be referenced using the ENTRYREF element.

The SKIPIFREF attribute pertains only to ENTRY elements that are included in a second metafile through the use of an ENTRYREF element. The ENTRYREF element references another metafile for logical inclusion in the current file. If the value of the SKIPIFREF attribute for an ENTRY element from the referenced metafile file is YES, Windows Media Player ignores this pulled-in entry, and moves on to the next ENTRY element, if any. The next ENTRY element can be the next entry in the original file, or the next entry in the metafile referenced in the ENTRYREF element.
