View Full Version : Invalid embedding... Help?

08-03-2009, 04:39 AM
I'm trying to upload a simple video to my website.

<OBJECT classid='clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B' width="307"
height="255" codebase='http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab'>
<param name='src' value="http://www.janetmperkins.com/videos/test.mov">
<param name='autoplay' value="false">
<param name='controller' value="true">
<param name='loop' value="false">
<EMBED src="http://www.janetmperkins.com/videos/test.mov" width="307" height="255" autoplay="false"
controller="true" loop="false" pluginspage='http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/'>

When I go to validate the coding, it says it's invalid due to the embed tag. When I remove that section, the video plays in IE, but doesn't even show up in FF. Is there a simple way I can go around this?

FLV and SWFObejct can be valiated and make your video broadcast more widely. It provides quick solution to add videos to web page and make custom flash video player for website.

If they weren't using quicktime this might be helpful. Its better to actually read the post before posting a possible solution.
