Hi,
I am building a web site in ASP.Net(C#).
I have several pages on my site where the user has to click on an image of a  vidoe file (.flv) and after pressing the play button, should be able to play the video.
I want to embeed those .flv files in the webpage and also want to give user an option to download that video file.
I am not too sure how to do it. Following code is not working for me.

  <object width="640" height="480">
             <param name="movie" value="Images/Video-demo1.1.flv" />
             <embed src="Images/Video-demo1.1.flv" width="640" height="480" /></embed>
  </object>

Could someone please help.

Another question is:
Is there an effective way of including videos on the website witout slowing down the website . I have atleast 20 videos (demo videos for diferent products)

Any suggestions please?

solve you issue like this

scroll down to bottom

As far as the 2nd issue

as long as you are
1. linking to the videos from inside your application files as opposed to linking videos from other sites
and
2. not embedding them to autoplay on start up it should not cause load issues
