There are numerous way to display movies on web sites. Here is one example of using a movie player on a web site that plays a number of different types of clips done professionally as well as one done by simply taking a movie with a hand held digital camera.
By clicking on the PLAYLIST button on the lower right side of the player, you can choose a movie of my daughter, Beverly skydiving at Lake Elsinore, an interview by Courtney Latta, an intern for the Children's Nutrition Program of Haiti. a movie of the Bee Gees concert, an interview by Jack Mishkin, CEO of JMish Carpet Mills, a CNN interview by Linda McDaniel, CEO of Avant Garde Designs, an amateur video taken of hang gliding, and a TV ad by The Rug Rack. Turn up your sound and adjust the volumn with the controls on the player!
These clips can be inserted into a web site without a player and set to play automatically when the web page is accessed.
