Hi,
I am testing different video file formats for my web site and I've figured out how to embed a Flash player and get it to work. However, I also want to paly.MWV and Quicktime videos. Can anyone give me some tips on how these video formats work and how I can get them to play on my site?

Thanks,
GWenda

the WMF will only play on PCs and not Apple MACs (probably 20% of the marktet)
flash is usually the standard and also FLV files.
attached is  some code for WMF files its playing a video called "goodtime.avi" but will also play WMF files
<html>
<head><title>Live Video Plugin</title>
<script LANGAUGE="JavaScript">
<!-- Hide JavaScript code...
 
function aviRewind(item) {
  document.plugins[item].rewind();
  document.plugins[item].play();
}
 
// Stop hiding... -->
</script>
<!--mstheme--><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="_themes/water/wate1111.css"><meta name="Microsoft Theme" content="water 1111, default">
<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="t, default">
</head>
<body><!--msnavigation--><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tr><td>

</td></tr><!--msnavigation--></table><!--msnavigation--><table dir="ltr" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tr><!--msnavigation--><td valign="top">
<script LANGAUGE="JavaScript">
<!-- Hide JavaScript code...
 
if (navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer") {
  location.replace("NsAviErr.html");
}
 
// Stop hiding code -->
</script>
<center>
<h2><font size="+4"><tt>The Navigator Jukebox</tt></font></h2>
<table border=1>
<tr><td>
<table border=0>
<tr><td valign="top" align="center">
    <embed NAME="playAvi" src="Goodtime.avi" autostart="true" height="240" width="320"></td></tr>
<tr><td valign="top" align="center">
<form>
<input type="button" value="Stop" onClick="document.plugins['playAvi'].stop()">
<input type="button" value="Play" onClick="document.plugins['playAvi'].play()">
<input type="button" value="Rewind" onClick="aviRewind('playAvi')">

Hi ChilternPC - thanks for this! Due to your comment that the .MWV file won't play on a Mac, I'm not going to even try testing it. However, I will post another question about how to put a Quicktime file on the web.

quicktime will play on a mac but if you havn't got it install on the PC then the browser will ask the client to open or save the file.
I usually convert all movies to flash using the Swich video package. - it converts any movie to flash and gicesyou the html to run it in a page.
