Embed .AVI video

I am not much of a web developer.  I use Frontpage and need to embed a video that I made from Windows Movie Maker onto my site.  I may have to add several videos actually.  I was thinking I could just use You Tube but the quality may not be great I was thinking.  Any suggestions?  The videos are upwards of 10 min in length.

Youtube would be the easiest cheapest way to do it.

First of all I would not use AVI as they will be large files, save them as .wmv files for web use in movie maker, then you can use the embedd tool in frontpage to use the media file you created.

Most developers now prefer the "object" code to the embed code -- because of
browser probs with the embed.

Here's the object code to embed the WMP player for wmv.

<object type="video/x-ms-wmv" data="http://YOUR_WEBSITE/YOUR_VIDEO.wmv"
width="320" height="260">
<param name="src" value="http://YOUR_WEBSITE/YOUR_VIDEO.wmv" />
<param name="autostart" value="true" />
<param name="controller" value="true" />
</object>

Don't forget to change the complete URL and video name in both
