I want a link from the right hand nav to start a video player on the left on the same page. By clicking the links on the left they will all view in the same spot on the right.
To do this I created a click to play on the right, insert>media>plugin (it is a mov file) I set the SRC as the link image, in parameters I set Href:media/movie.mov to indicate what video should play. For target:_top:
<embed src="../beerlabel_polaroids.png" width="32" height="32" href="media/Chevy_2012_directors_cut.mov" target="top"></embed>
This opens the media in a new browser window, I would prefer it open on the same page. This works partially when I set to _self (In that it doesn't open in a new window, but I don't want the video to play in the same location as the link.)
Is this behavour correct for this parameter, my understanding was that by setting the target to _top it would open in in the center of the same page. Am I missing a step? Is this the simplest solution for getting multiple links of video to play on one page in the same spot?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
