Since our last go-around in the April Fool's forum was deleted, let's try this again. Read the documentation for the APPLET tag. Your code base can't contain a path on the local file system. How would other clients access it?
Other clients are not required to access the program, i've basicllay developed a webcam applet which compiles fine as Ive imported the java media packages but it wont run i'm assuming it is a problem with my applet code. Ive read the applet doc, and dont know of anything different that I need to do.

That does not change the design and functionality of the Java language.
I really can't make it any more clear: Your code base can't contain a path on the local file system. From the Java Tutorial page I posted earlier:
By default, a browser looks for an applet's class and archive files in the same directory as the HTML file that has the <APPLET> tag. . . You can use the CODEBASE attribute to tell the browser in which directory the applet's files are located
Look at the code base in your applet tag. Is it a directory name?
The codebase in the applet tag is a directory name, i've tried having the jar file in the same directory but it still does not seem to work, Ive tried the codebase as follows "C:\JMF-2.1.1e\lib\jmf.jar", ".", "jmf.jar", but nothing seems to work.
i'm not 100% sure whether its not working because of the applet codebase. Could it be another problem.
