I'm going to be setting up a "terminal" in the school main hall that will act as a sort of tour guide to the school for visitors. It will play short movie clips, show images and the like and have text about the school. It will only run on the one dedicated machine, but it would be nice if people could update it remotely.

I guess i was thinking that html might be a way forward - it's a familiar interface, and is nice and easy to program. How is it on auto playing movies and the like though? Might i be better off moving to flash to create that dedicated program feel, or is there another program entirely that might be more suitable for the job.

Many thanks, as ever, for your assistance and advice in advance.
