I know that this thread is extremely old, but it was the first one that popped up when I was searching for help.
I have been looking to embed .mov files to my website and tried numerous codes around the net. I thought I would pop along and share what I have found. I am aware that solutions may have been found but I am sure there will be people who will still be searching for answers.
This is the exact code (minus the web and file name) I used to play a video on my site. it may only work for windows users, I am not sure. (if you are a mac user please let us know )
<object id="MediaPlayer1" CLASSID="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701"
standby="Loading Microsoft Windows® Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject" width="280" height="256">
<param name="fileName" value="http://www.yourwebsite.com/uploads/video.avi">
<param name="animationatStart" value="true">
<param name="transparentatStart" value="true">
<param name="autoStart" value="true">
<param name="showControls" value="true">
<param name="Volume" value="-450">
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://activex.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/uploads/video" name="MediaPlayer1" width=280 height=256 autostart=1 showcontrols=1 volume=-450>
You will probably notice the file is a .avi - This is how I got the .mov file to play. In the ftp folder that you uploaded your .mov file to, simply change the file extension to .avi - I did this with a .wmv and a .mov file and they both worked with this code.
If this defeats the object of playing a .mov file then I am sorry, but this is the only way I could find how to play them.
I hope this helps some people in some way
If you wish to see it working, go to www.sportbook.3owl.com - I used a sample video from windows just to test it
