How to embed a .mov movie so that controls are showing?

Hi,

I need to embed a movie into a web page.
I have it as a .mov format (and wonder if this is the best option, maybe it should be converted to flash...?)

So far I used
<embed src="images/xxxx.mov" width="260" height="260"></embed>

in the code, but this does not show any controls like Pause or Play. It just starts running.

I would like to have the option to  start it on command by user or time delayed by definition.

Any suggestions?

The basic code is:
<object type="video/x-ms-wmv"
  data="http://www.sarahsnotecards.com/catalunyalive/ »
fishstore.wmv"
  width="320" height="260">
  <param name="autostart" value="true" />
  <param name="controller" value="true" />
</object>

But for more details I recommend you refer to:

I am afraid that sample does not work for the mov extension.
Thanks for the recommendation anyway.
It looks useful for .wav files.

The best thing I found myself so far is to import the mov file into Flash and convert it into a flash movie.
Dreamweaver and Flash work together very well implementing this into a web page , you can even have a big choice of control button styles.

The  
type="video/x-ms-wmv"
needs to be adjusted for your content type. Refer to the following cross-reference page to find the appropriate mime type for your content.
