Effortless Embedding of Videos

If you don't want to post to hosted video solutions (like YouTube), and want the video to look nice and embedded into an HTML file, here's some thoughts:

If the video is MP4 format.  Use a Flash based MP4 player embedded into HTML.  See:

Otherwise, convert the video to FLV (Flash Video) format and again use a Flash based player.  I had one on my computer.  One of these days I'll post how I used to do that, but why bother?  If you can convert videos to FLV, you can just as well convert to MP4 and use the above solution!
