Hello Lisa, the link you have here for kite festival movie
works fine. it opens in my Media player when i click on the link to it. It should work for you too, BUT and that's a big 'but', that 7.2mb movie is a very very very! large file size for downloading. maybe you are not waiting long enough to let it load and stream. If your on dial-up it will take about an hour to fully stream and download to a persons media player.
you would not want that large movie file on a page in an embedded player. I would just offer it as a download with the links that dallleh gave you. and explainn near the link, to your dial-up visitors who do not have high speed connections that it will take an hour or more to download and and fully stream to their video players.
as for broadband visitors the video will download and play quicker (it took about 5 minutes on my DSL connection, but 7.2mb is very very large file. you should think about optimizing it to a windows media player file .wmv (I'll see what I can do with it), I save yur movie to my computer.
but it will still be a very large file regardless.
I can give you the code to embed the video player to a page on your site, but you diffinetly don't want it to auto play! ....LOL
but you embed a video the same way you would embed a player for music files. check out my site here where I explain the embed code here:
I like the beach and the kites....we're just witing for spring here in michigan, but don't think it's ever going to get here! Please send some Sun...Lisa!
