How can I make a .wmv file appear as a YouTube video does with a box or image and the arrow to click play rather than have a hyperlink from words?

I appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you, Elbee

You need a Flash player.
Try look on the net for "JW Player", its free; or other "free flash player".

Embedding Media:

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.


I don't agree with using tables and usually change the code to div, nor do I agree with the fact the code includes a closing embed tag which is not needed, but it does get the job done. The one site allows you to test the video so be sure to put the correct paths in.
