Embed Videos in Webpage

Postby T-Man1984 » Sun Jun 19, 2011 11:06 pm

Hey all,
I am starting to use my Nikon Camera to take short videos. I host my own website from home, and have setup a subpage viewable at videos.mydomain.com.

However I am having trouble finding a good and easy way to get the videos to play. I was thinking about making a table two columns wide and putting a video in each box all the way down the page. I have both Dreamweaver and Microsoft Expression, but cannot seem to find a good way of doing this in either program. I get the table made, but when I put the video in there and view it, it is too large and starts playing automatically. Seems like this should be something people do all the time?

Any advice?

The simple way is to use HTML5 video tags

<video width="640" height="480" controls="controls">
<source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
<source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg" />

The trick then is to make sure that you get your video in a format that every browser supports... or you'll need to list multiple sources as I have here.
