I need to know the code or the necessary steps to be able to swap videos, with a mouse roll over or click, using Dreamweaver. I have five videos that I need to hold in one single placeholder. I need to swap these videos, each time the mouse is clicked. Is there a way to do this using YouTube videos, embedded codes?

Please HELP!!
Thanks

thank you for the reply,

I don’t need to make a gallery, I already have one, i just need to be able to call the play button to play the video, in its place, and then call the next play button to swap the video to the next video in the array. Does the program you showed me allow for the video to be placed in the website you want it to be played, separately not with a gallery?

Ah-ha.  That makes more sense now.  No, the first link I showed you was a gallery.  In order to do what you are talking about, you'll need a player that supports a playlist.  The JW Media Player can use an XML file to load a whole sequence of videos into the one player instance and allow you to quickly move from video to video.

If you want to separate the triggers, you don't have to use a playlist.  Instead, each of those links needs to have an onclick event attached to it and you rewrite the swfobject options based on values passed through the onclick event.

sorry for not being clear.. really all i want to do is hover the mouse over the green play button and with that it calls the first video to play, on click or on hover, just as long as it plays the video, what is the code to call a mouse event, for the last solution you provided  as in the link provided above, and what would i have to change in the  swf objects to make everything work??  thanks

The discussion thread should be pretty clear and give you the way forward.  Look at the posts from AJAX and lost specifically.

You can mix onhover and onclick in the <a> tag. onhover would replace the thumbnail in the player and onclick would change the video.

Sorry.  You may want to use this as a jumping off point for a new question in the Javascript zones.  Those folks are a lot better than I am with issues like this.
