Wouldn't it be nice if you could play video in your exercises, and in most, if not all browsers? Here's a really multi functional and highly customizable player. The code is xHTML1.1 valid and tested on WinXP SP2, Win7 in:
Player name: JW FLV Player | Author: Jeroen Wijering | Download: http://www.jeroenwijering.com
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="300" height="245" data="flvplayer.swf?file=my_movie_file.flv&autostart=false"> <param name="movie" value="flvplayer.swf?file=my_movie_file.flv&autostart=false" /> <param name="flashvars" value="file=my_movie_file.flv" /> <param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> </object>
If you copy-paste the code above,
2: note the sample code &autostart. Certain characters must be escaped, i.e., & becomes & a m p ;
3: you may have seen autoStart somewhere, but not in this tutorial's sample code - it must be autostart - all in lowercase! camelCase makes your pages NOT xHTML1.1 valid.
4: you will have changed my_movie_file.flv with the name of your file; and you'll have uploaded all the necessary files along with the exercise.
SWFObject 2.0 has been released and is now hosted on code.google.com. Please consider the new v2 instead of v1.5.
