Im designing my website with DreamWeaver MX2004 and want to use it to add .mov file to my site,but it seems not working. Do I need to have the Flash Video Kit in order to add this type of video file to a web page in Dreamweaver MX 2004. I tried inserting it as a plug in, but I really have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

I welcome any help or guidance that someone may have to point me in the right direction as to what I need to do.
Thank you!

I think it would be convenient if there is a tool that can put all these popular videos to web site, and no need to do such complex setting.

Welcome aboard shirley1874, you shouldn't need anything special to include a .mov file in a web page.

It's usually done with the <object> tag, and the <embed> tag nested inside it for Mozilla browser support. This isn't valid HTML, but it works.

<object width="320" height="240"
<param name="src" value="moviefile.mov">
<param name="controller" value="true">
<param name="autoplay" value="false">
<embed src="moviefile.mov" width="320" height="240"
autoplay="false" controller="true"

In the previous example, moviefile.mov is in the same directory as the web page; just alter the path to include the .mov from a directory.

<param name="src" value="/video/moviefile.mov">
.... <embed src="/video/moviefile.mov" ....

Note that the leading slash will NOT work on your local computer. It will only work when uploaded; it means "start at document root, then open . . ." the following directory/file.

You may try Web Player, its a tool to generate flash video player for web site, the flash video player can be added single or multiple video / audio to your websites. It supports to play the videos Adobe Flash Player can handle, such as FLV, and MOV, MP4, 3GP, 3G2 with H.264 codec.
