Using streaming and embed video on sites

By courtney ·
I want to setup my website to use WIndows Media Streaming videos. I already have it setup but for some reason it doesn't work with Firefox, could be a mime issue.

The second thing I want to do is setup the videos so they play right in website (don't open it's own copy of media player)

where can I get soem information or good resources for this?

The best method to embed video in web page

by panamadany In reply to Using streaming and embed ...

Flash video formats(FLV/SWF) is the best choice to add video to a website, which lies in the following reasons:
1.Flash video is a container file format used to deliver video over the Internet. Its best quality and smallest file size make it easily be uploaded to website. The good examples are YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo video, Hulu, Myspace, Facebook, etc.

2. Flash Player can work on Windows, Linux and Mac OS (including Tiger, Snow leaplord) and is supported by more browsers (IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc)than any other player. And you can customize your flash player with <a href=http://www.flashconverterformac.com/video-to-flash-converter-mac/>video to flash converter for mac</a>. Your visitors don't need to download any player before watching your embedded videos.

3. Flash can automatically stream video. It takes up less spaces and bandwidth.

4. There are many wonderful flash creators to help you to make a amazing flash with customize flash player. One of them is <a href=http://www.doremisoft.net/Video-to-Flash-Converter-Mac/>Doremisoft video to flash converter for mac</a> which can convert your any video format (mp4, 3gp, wmv, avi, mov, qt, mpg, mpeg, etc) to Flash FLV/SWF format and automatically embed them in an HTML web page, no need for any flash programming knowledge.

After create a Flash video in FLV/SWF format with video to flash converter for mac (See details: <a href=http://www.flashconverterformac.com/articles/how-to-convert-video-to-flv-swf-flash-animation-on-mac-osx/>Convert Video to SWF/FLV/Animation on Mac OSX</a>), how do you put it on your website correctly?

The remaining work is as easy as a piece of cake. When you finished the conversion, you will find four files(.flv, .swf, .html, .jpg) in your output folder. Upload FLV and SWF files to your server host. Open .html file with Dashcode and copy codes(from "<object classid>" to "</object>") to your website.
