    What is the best way to show a Video file on a website ?

    The file is a .mov video file, and i just want to embed it into
    the webpage, so it loads rather quick and has a good quality to it......

    thanks !

    Hi Jim,

    Can i also use Visual Hub to convert the
    .mov quicktime file to Flash video for the web ?

    Does anyone know if Visual Hub
    is just as good as the FLV converter ?

    Keep it as h.264 and play it with JW Player using swfobject would be my solution.

    Yes, according to the features listing for v1.34, but I've never personally tried it and can't compare it to the features Moyea has which are extensive. It seems pretty basic. BTW, the VH project has now been open sourced here if you wanna save some money.

    BTW, I just found a Mac version called Macvide Video Flash Converter which is $39.95 and has all the features and is optimized for Mac OS X and intel processors so it works fast too. Once again, this is a professional software - GUI based, easy to use, fast conversion, tons of features, one simple download and install, but not free.

    Hi I know this is an old thread, but this might help someone else with similar issue.

    ZenQT Player can play QuickTime MOV from your website. It embeds easy and can also be skinned (supports JW Player skins too).

    Of course the other option is that you can encode for flash, though iPad currently cant play flash..
