Template website for playing video files (Avi or Flv)

Hello, I am hoping somebody can provide me with a template that can be used to play video files on a web page.  I have little experience with creating websites, but I want to put some video files on a local network with an HTML index offering a brief description of the selected video file.

Can anyone help?

Hi Bevos,

You don't need a template so much as a web-based video player that you can then embed in a web page and use it to playback video.

I strongly recommend the JW Media Player:  http://www.longtailvideo.com/

Hi Jason, I am getting a few problems.  I get some error when I try to preview my site "Video not found or Access Denied" but before this it was giving me many security prompts for Adobe Flash player.  Another issue I'm having is embedding this is a CSS accordian panel.  It will work in the first panel but the player doesn't even show up in other panels.  Here is an example of the code I'm using.

Any help would be very appreciated!

>> I get some error when I try to preview my site "Video not found or Access Denied"

1. Make sure all of the videos are located in this path relative to the initial file:

video/AbstractScreening/

2. If this is a Windows web server, make sure .flv has a MIME type defined.

Hi Jason, the files are all located there.  I have not uploaded this to a web server yet and am trying to run these as a preview from my local machine.  Strangely it will work in dreamweaver when I do the preview as a 'device' but when I try in a browser (chrome or IE) it will not work.  Any thoughts?

Thanks so much,
Bevo S.

Previewing from local will cause all kinds of weirdness to happen due to the paths, javascript and flash calls.  I would test from a real web server.

Well, that is a problem for me because I'm just going to host this on a local network for some of my co-workers to see how to use a software. Any suggestions on how to make this work?
