let me preface this by saying... it's been a good DECADE since i coded anything.

i have lots of videos that i USED to host on youtube and vimeo but, no more.

as of now, they're all .wmv but i don't like real players clunky controls.

i prefer the elegant simplicity of html5/mp4.

does that just leave me with the <video> tag, or would <embed> or something be better?

is that the best option?
or quicktime or something?

what would you opt for?
