embed .mp4 in offline (cd-based) html page. flowplayer?

Posted on 2011-05-03
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I'm working on an html project that will be distributed by CD, and should not rely on a network connection for anything.

I have an mp4/h.264 video that I need to embed into a page. Currently, the video will play if I load the page through my local apache, but not if I access the page as file:///

Can anyone tell me how to accomplish this, even if it means ditching flowplayer?

					flowplayer("player", "data/flowplayer-3.2.7.swf", {
    			clip:  {
      				autoPlay: false,
      				url: "data/lcontent/English_Company_Profile.mp4",
     				autoBuffering: true

Open in new window

I'm also open to other methods.

    JWplayer worked seamlessly!

    <div id="container" style="width:480;height:240;">Loading the player ...</div>
                <script type="text/javascript"> jwplayer("container").setup({
                flashplayer: "data/jwplayer/player.swf", file: "data/lcontent/English_Company_Profile.mp4", height: 270, width: 480

    just like that.
