    Hyperlinked Flash Video In Popup Window

    This is what I have so far which works as a cross-browser download however Firefox will play the video locally inside the popup window: is this normal behaviour?

    Code:
    <span class="popup"><a href="javascript:void(window.open('videos/directdrive.flv','','height=383,width=512'));">Watch a video!</a></span>
    link to the page

    This is a very new area for me as you can probably tell and I was wondering if websites require a flash player to view video or do some browsers have a flash player built in as Firefox has led me to believe?

    Thanks.

    Just downloaded Shadowbox and am going to get to grips with it's implementation.

    Will post some results later.

    UPDATE: this is a nice package, lightweight even as a standalone and so easy to install I'm already done! test page (first appliance top left has video link only)

    Also planning to use Shadowbox as an expanded image view using a mouseover function.
