|Embedding mp4 with static image|
how to edit this code for adding an initial static image
| 10:35 pm on Oct 2, 2009 (gmt 0)|
I have been using .mov files on my site and want to start using mp4
I have this form to embed the mp4
I have set my .htaccess to allow mp4 mime type
How do I append this code to enable a .jpg image to show before the movie is linked by the viewer.
Here's the code now in use
OBJECT classid='clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B' width='480' height='375' codebase='http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab'>
<param name='Movie' value='DD41.mp4'>
<param name='autoplay' value='true'>
<param name='controller' value='true'>
<param name='loop' value='true'>
<embed src='DD41.mp4' width='480' height='375' autoplay='true'
controller='true' loop='true' pluginspage='http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/'>

Welcome to Webmaster World!
Do you mean that you would like to have a .jpg on a page that would then be clicked on to start playing the mp4?

Yes, I can do that with a LongTail flash player for .flv files but I wanted to see if MP4 can be used;
I have not found the right code to embed it yet
and the neat feature of the flash player is that it allows me to post a static image that the public sees and clicks to 'start' the real video
Thus I am looking for such for mp4

Sounds like you want to create a "poster frame". This can be accomplished with a good video editor.
Basically you choose a frame in your video, and tell the software to use that frame as the opening still image. When it is clicked on, the video starts.
