    Question How do i put a movie on my website?

    So i have no idea if this is even possible but i'll ask the question anyway. I have a free geocities web site and i want to put videos on it but i don't know how. Could i use HTML or what? If so, what script would i use? If not, then does anyone know another way of doing it?

    i believe you would use the embed tag....

    something like

    <embed src="http://www.geocities.com/file.mpg" width="425" height="350"></embed>

    something like this.... but it wont have controls....

    another way is if you have flash 8, then you can use the flash converter to convert a mpg or avi or wmv into a flash file (.swf)

    then, it will spit out the flash movie with player controls. then for the HTML, you would use something like this code to play a flash file.....

    <object classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="347" height="418">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.geocities.com/videofile.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <embed src="http://www.geocities.com/videofile.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="347" height="418"></embed>

    but you would change the width and height to your liking. hope this helps

    Upload it to a video host

    There are many examples of embedable multimedia at Image-me Myspace, including animated gif, mov and avi file formats. You only need to tweak a few parameters to customise the final result.

    Alternatively, you may upload your video host like YouTube and use the html code that they offer:
    <object width="96" height="128"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/7SySVtkR5d0"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/7SySVtkR5d0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="96" height="128"></embed></object>
