   NUMBER = "marker number"
   NAME = "marker name"
/>

Attributes

NUMBER

The number of a numeric marker in the index. The default value is the beginning of on-demand content or the current position in a real-time stream.

NAME

Remarks

This element specifies the marker from which Windows Media Player is to start rendering the stream defined in the parent ENTRY or REF element.

Note

Use this element with either the NUMBER or NAME attribute, but not both.

A STARTMARKER element defined within a REF element takes precedence over a STARTMARKER element defined within the REF element's parent ENTRY element. A STARTMARKER element also takes precedence over a STARTTIME element.

If the marker specified by a STARTMARKER element occurs later in the stream than the marker defined by an ENDMARKER element, no content plays, but no error is generated.

Examples



<STARTMARKER NUMBER="14" />
<STARTMARKER NAME="Marker_StartHere" />
