Embeding vids on a website
How to, special software?

My 13 year old is amazingly great with creating little videos right now. I would love to post them on one of my sites in a sub for him. I would like to encourage him to keep this up.

However I have never embeded video into a site. Some of the are swf files, and others, well not to sure what they are. He sends them to me from upstairs and my email program doesn't always let them through.

I think if he sticks with this he could really get far in some type of computer animation etc..

So any help, or links for reading up on how to do this would be appreciated. I prefer to read the how to instead of being given the code to. If that makes sense?

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi 4CSS

There are a milion tutorials out there for embedding video/flash - start with a quick search for "embed video" or "embed flash". This will turn up some decent links. When you get stuck come back and I'll be happy to help - an alternative to manually inserting video would be to install a script/cms that allows video uploads.

There are also a fair few video showcase sites out there - not all of them as big or as broad in content as say, YouTube. This might be a good way for him to store his film whilst getting recognition and feedback from peers doing the same thing.

Thanks Limbo.

I have googled this before, it seems as though the players don't all work cross browser if I remember correctly?

and I believe there was also a valadation problem with one of them.

His one I would love to see him put on youtube. I dont' beleive it is in the correct format though.

While on the subject of videos, I have some to put into the pc from my camera, how do I do this so that I can place onto dvd for playing on tv? I have my daughter and sons weddings that I wish to get onto dvd and send to them, along with a photo type video of when they were smaller. I have pinnacles studio, however I could not seem to figure it out. (maybe I take on too much? or is that a "geek" normality? ;) )

YouTube has links to how to prepare and upload videos to their site. You can't find this info?

He can Zip the files and mail them to you from upstairs. Or put on a CD. Should get through your mail.

Hi Jessijump,
I'm not too familiar with youtube myself. I did not even realize they had an instruction page.

Thanks for letting me know though as when he finishes it I'll put it up there for him.
