Anybody know how to put a video in an HTML file ?

P: n/a
I am looking for some examples (html code ..) of web page with a video
(as wmv file) playing in a frame (using some Windows Media Player plugin).
I don't need a specific server because my web pages (containing a video
frame , text frame and picture frame will be used on local machine for
teaching purpose.

Embedding is normally not a good idea, but it's ok if it's for a private
network and if the UA's accessing the content are known to be able to
handle the data:

<object data="http://host.com/video.wmv" type="video/x-ms-wmv"></object>

Thanks for the information :
but your suggestion opens directly the Window Media Player as a whole
external application.
The type is the good one, because when using the following code :

<embed src="myvideo.wmv" type="video/x-ms-wmv" width="320"
height="240"></embed>

a frame containing the video (with WMP as actor) is open in the HTML
page. What I want !
Thanks anew.

In that case your UA is broken.

Invalid code, should not be used on the web, might be ok for an
intranet.

An innocent question : what about "UA is broken"
Even that code is invalid, it works and for local use of web pages I
think that it's not a problem.
An other problem is that this type of code works only with I.E. and not
with Mozilla for example.

Which is why it isn't appropriate for the www. Of course, if anyone on
your Intranet uses Mozilla, you need to find a better solution.

BTW: Please don't post upside-down.
