If you use the current CVS you can do this... it is a hack, but should work=
but I have not tested it. My initial guess is that it will not work when th=
files are the same. This should also work with QuickTime, so it is a nice=20
standard way of doing this.
<embed type=3D"application/x-mplayer2" src=3D"link to video" href=3D"link t=
Here is what it should do
download the video specified in src and get the first frame and turn it int=
button. Then when the frame is clicked on. It will play the video in href.=
I created this function for the Apple Trailers sites like the one for=20
"Magnificent Desolation". It is still a work in progress, but seems to work=
I would actually recommend creating a very small file for src and then the=
larger file for href.
There is some enhancement work that could be done here.=20
Such as an attribute called "makebutton" or something like that where it do=
this for the src file and so the href link would not be needed.
Could also do something like the src is a gif or jpeg file and it is just=20
loaded into the button. Don't have this coded up either.
