I am having a problem by redirecting a link (http://new.music.yahoo.com/videos/--217281288), that i get from the XML feed (rss).
When i test this on my local server everything woks fine, but once uploaded on the server (Windows server), I get a message that i have a broken link.
This is the way i do this on my local server:
<a href="gotothispage.aspx?videoId=http://new.music.yahoo.com/videos/--217281288"> GOMusic </a>
The id of the video clip is 217281288. I can extract this id out this link, but in order to do that i have to redirect this page using the link above first.
I've noticed that the link is not working because of this character ( -- ). If i delete this, it works fine, but since this is part of the rss feed, i can't do it.
Is there any workaround for this issue ?
PS. I hope you can understand my question.
Thank you in advance for any help or suggestion .
