This is a great tutorial! It takes a lot of mystery out of video on the web. In following you tutorial on embedding video on a html page, the only one I was unable to get to work was for .flv format.
I understand that you indicated .swf format for flash player. I had difficulty in finding a converter to that format. I couldn't get the .flv format to show up in internet exploder. I'm not keen on uploading video to youtube because I'm not comfortable in surrendering copyright and to the google copyright police. Great work. Any tips?
