ok, so if i use the video tag, no go. i keep getting "no video with supported format and mime type not found" (in FF).

yet, if i use the embed tag, fine.

but that's not an option, i don't wanna bring up quicktime and it's clunky interface.

i'm going for a nice, clean interface (like http://www.w3schools.com/html5/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_video).

so, what gives?

yes, i have the "source" correct. it's right in the root folder.

the object tag has even more messed up results.

can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong?

Although the embed tag (there's only ONE) is deprecated, it is still included for some browsers. You can get the needed media code for your video at the following sites.
