Embedding Video in a Web Page

The following is a sample code that shall help you embed a custom vedio of your choice in a web page.

Note: This code works fine in IE/Fire Fox. Holds good when included in a XPage as well. The same fails when previewed on notes client though... i mean XPages in 8.5.1

The code below shall have two fragments one is <object> tag for IE and  <Embed> for Firefox,

Hence you got to specify your video url in two places in the following code.

<object ID="MediaPlayer" WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="300" CLASSID="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" STANDBY="Loading Windows Media Player components..."
TYPE="application/x-oleobject">   <param NAME="FileName" VALUE=";hl=en_US" />
<param name="ShowControls" VALUE="true" />
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="false" />
<param name="ShowDisplay" VALUE="false" />
<param name="autostart" VALUE="true" />
<embed TYPE="application/x-mplayer2" SRC=";hl=en_US" NAME="MediaPlayer" WIDTH="400" HEIGHT="300" ShowControls="1" ShowStatusBar="0" ShowDisplay="0" autostart="1">   </EMBED> </OBJECT>
