    Embed video... question..

    Miss_Angela
      Ok, so I can't stand YouTube and I've found many other video 'hosting' places where random ads would be shown after my video on my website.

      I want to be able to embed the video on my page, and I was told about this link with the code to do it. It worked GREAT in Internet Explorer, I was able to figure out how to change the file names, etc....

      http://www.mediacollege.com/video/streaming/embed/

      But it did not work AT ALL in Fireworks.. The buttons below the picture didn't even show up..

      I have heard about Firefox Extensions, but I don't want to add something onto my firefox, because I am not worried about ME viewing it, I want to make sure people who visit my page (using Firefox) can see the video.

      Do I need to put some type of coding on my page so that it will be compatible with firefox??? I am so lost.

      I noticed at the bottom page of the site it says
      "For maximum browser compatibility this method uses two tags:

      * <object> For Internet Explorer.
      * <embed> For Firefox etc."

      What does this mean?? I don't understand at all how to make it work in firefox.


      Thanks

          Convert your native video file to FLV. Just about every new computer has
          Flash Player plug-in installed so you'll reach the widest audience with this
          file type. To embed Flash Video in your web page, you'll link to an SWF
          file which contains the player info and skin.

          Embedded Flash Video Code:

          <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
          codebase=" http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.ca
          b#version=6,0,29,0" width="400" height="400" >
          <param name="movie" value="videoplayer.swf">
          <param name="quality" value="high" >
          <param name="LOOP" value="false">
          <embed src="videoplayer.swf" width="400" height="400" loop="false"
          quality="high" pluginspage=" http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
          type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></ embed >
          </ object >

          Note: For maximum browser compatibility this method uses two tags: <object>
          and <embed>. You will need to set the file name and other attributes for
          both tags.
