You should host your video on YouTube. It's much faster, more easy to use, and puts less strain on your website. If you insist on using your website to host the video, there are a number of ways to embed it.

Code: Select all
<img src="superbowl_xlv.wmv" width="500" height="350" alt=" To start video right click on your mouse then press open in new window.">


I'm not sure why you're using img. Possibly object or embed would work. But again, you really should use YouTube. I would.

YouTube provides HTML code to embed your movie into your webpage.

In a way, yes. I've taken a quick look, and you don't seem to be using any CSS. And you need more divs to structure your page in an organized fashion.

Hi themindstormsman,
I suggest that you try http://validator.w3.org/. It is type of like a compiler, but for HTML and CSS. I have ran my site through it a number of times, and it shows you what HTML code you need to fix. Plus, every page that passes gets free stickers! :D

Hmm... I'm not happy with that code. Have you seen the HTML 5 way of putting videos on your site?

http://www.w3schools.com/html5/html5_video.asp

At least you could put a link to the video.
Code: Select all
<a href="superbowl_xlv.wmv">Click here to see my SuperBowl video!</a>

Yes but then the majority of IE users won't be able to see it.
I know the people of this forum usually have more sense, I'm using FF7a1
but some people will not see it properly.
PS, w3schools is a bad site.

I think that sometimes web page developers (or people that are just playing around :)) have to decide to better-support the community of people that will probably be viewing their site. I know that there are some of us that use IE and I have nothing against it at all, but most browsers in this day and age really should support HTML5. If if your browser doesn't, you probably have bigger things (like security) to worry about. You can always include a note that says something to the tune of "HTML5 compatible browser required to view this video" or something like that.
