embedding videos in websites

By FC-T. ·
Hello IT people I'm new here,
I'm working on a family website and would like to use flash videos rather than making viewers have to download .wmv or .mov files youtube doesn't cut it because of the youtube logo at the corner and the quality, I'm curious if anyone out here has any ideas of free good quality flash video players

Go generic Windows

You will need to understand and be able to code some HTML to imbed a Flash movie.

As a gui web user/developer I would suggest sticking to a windows friendly format such as .wmv. That way you should be able to use the gui interface for your web design software and imbed the movie. A move with the .wmv extension will play and use the media player built in to all Windows OS's

I'm not sure if you are still searching for flash video player for your website.
If yes, you can use the one I'm using, it is free, called Moyea web player, it is a flash video player maker -
It will be a quick solution to make a custom flash video player for website and add flv files to the player.

Why not just have a hot link to a non proprietary video

stored on the host system. This saves you having to worry about platform compatibility and if they have the right player, and if they have Flash Blocker running. The embedded video will be part of the page download and will make it longer to download the page.

Also, having an embedded video will upset those who aren't interested in the video right at that moment.

Some of the embedded flash player will only work in the latest Windows systems and thus not visible to people with older Windows or non Windows systems.
