How to make a web video

I want to make an ad video that the user cannot skip. How do I do that?
I also need to display a form right after the video has been viewed. And I want to stay out of Flash.
I have a good programming background but I am lacking some skills with videos.

TIA.

Paul

pdube, welcome to WebmasterWorld.

Just to be clear, you want to create a video that begins with an ad that cannot be skipped through, then, at the end of the actual video content, you want a form to appear in the same place as the video? Would you be ok with the page refreshing to another page with a form on it?

And of course, no Flash.

In fact the video is an ad and nothing more. Yes I think it would be OK for the page to refresh to another form. But why not have a layer appear at the end of the video? The form appears in place of the video. The video cannot be played again.

If you want to hit the widest possible audience you need to use a plugin whether it's flash or something else like Silverlight, the other alternative is html5.

There is two distinct issues. Firstly codec issues, there is no universal codec that can be expected to play on any system. The closest you'll come to that is mpeg1 which is really not very efficient.

The second is cross browser issues, there is no way to reliably embed a player using html4.

Flash eliminates both these issues.
