Thank you Mylenium... I guess I'll try to work it out with HTML5 and just let the controller stay up if it plays on EI with quicktime. . . Cliff
I guess I'll try to work it out with HTML5
HTML 5 is still a beta standard; not yet finalized by W3C with only minimal support from a few browsers. Are you sure you want to do this?
I have IE8 and FF3.6.2 (latest updates) on Vista with Flash 10, without QuickTime. I don't see videos on your test page. In FF, I see an empty player but no active controls or video. In IE8, I get an alert to install QT, and a white screen inside player chrome.
If I understand the VfE directions correctly...,
1) you need an HTML 5 doc type (you have XHTML doc type declaration on your page).
VfE uses HTML5 doc type like this:
2) You need to upload OGV and MP4 files to web server. If you place videos in your root (same as page) your source code would look like this:
<video width="640" height="360" poster="poster.jpg" controls autoplay> <source src="http://your-video.ogv" type="video/ogg"></source> <source src="http://your-video.mp4" type="video/mp4"></source>
3) You need Flash Player (SWF) and Conditional Comments for IE.
<!--[if gt IE 6]> <object width="640" height="375" classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"><! [endif]--><!--[if !IE]><!--> <object width="640" height="375" type="video/quicktime" data="http://your-video.mp4"> <!--<![endif]--> <param name="src" value="your-video.mp4" /> <param name="autoplay" value="true" /> <param name="showlogo" value="false" /> <object width="640" height="384" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="player.swf?autostart=true&image=poster.jpg&file=http://your-video.mp4"> <param name="movie" value="player.swf?autostart=true&image=poster.jpg&file=http://your-video.mp4" /> <!-- fallback image --> <img src="poster.jpg" width="640" height="360" alt="your_video_title" title="No video playback capabilities, please download the video below" /> </object><!--[if gt IE 6]><!--> </object><!--<![endif]--> </video>
4) Ensure your server is using the correct mime-types. Firefox will not play the OGG video if the mime-type is wrong. Place these lines in your .htaccess file or contact your host and ask them to do this for you.
AddType video/ogg .ogv
AddType video/mp4 .mp4
5) It is absolutely essential that you provide download links outside of the video player to ensure your message gets through.
VfE is an interesting experimental demo. I'm not sure I would use this in the wild yet, but I've bookmarked the link for future reference. Thanks for sharing it.
Best of luck with your project,
