.mov files to appear on my site like youtube videos

I have a bunch of .mov files that I want to post to my website.  They are not on youtube.  I have other videos on my site using the embed <iframe> code found on youtube.  How can I make my .mov files appear on my site similar to the way they appear with youtube iframe code.

Hi Joshua,

That works.  I addes <object to the front of the code.  Is that correct?  I changed the autoplay to false because I don't want it to play right away.  How does the end user control the movie.  Ie. pause and play.

Thx

yes sorry it should look like this
<object CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" 
<param name="src" value="http://www.yourdomain/your.mov">
<param name="autoplay" value="false">
<param name="controller" value="true">
<embed src="http://www.yourdomain/your.mov" height="256" width="320" type="video/quicktime" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">

</object>

That's better but now autoplay does not work.  It starts right away even with autoplay false.

Does it have to be a certain width.  I only have 236px of space and the play button does not appear??

Make sure there are not multiple "autoplay" functions in your code.

What about the width and the controller.  At 236px wide the play button is off the screen???

Mine was just an example you can adjust it to fit your video.

Can you give me a link to your .mov file and I will make the code that will work specific to what you need.
