Adding video to a websites homepage.

Have a site "advancedparamedic.com" which takes you to index.php home page. I have the task of adding the video to the website. The video is a wmv 26.7 MB 640X360 Frame Width / Height Respectively. I can access the index.php file but im looking for suggestions of how to code this in and best place for it. I was thinking of a small box with a play button like i see on some sites..but dont know anything about php coding. I have backed up the index.php file by renaming it in case i have to revert to it should i make a mistake.

You can upload it to youtube or vimeo and use their embedding code.

You should use GET command to embed wmv video on your php page.
look at this:

i'm sure you'll be OK with that, if you have backed up index.php just copy and past and change the code according to your needs, your should create a directory under your website and upload the wmv file there, let say the location in the code will be <param name="filename" value="/wmv/yourmovie.wmv">  ..

I forgot to mention if theres a way to make the video pop up in the 640X360 dimensions since if its too large it messes up the width of the webpage.
