    embedding a video

    My website is here

    On the front page there is a box with a poll, and when you click the tab there is a webfeatures tab, and when you click it..the following is the code segment:

    Code:
    <html>
    <body text="#000000" link="black" vlink="black">
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    
    <span class="inthissectionlink"><center><src="test.html" border=1></center><br><img src="/images/arrowroundsmall.jpg" width="12" height="11"><font size="1">Use the buttons to watch the test video!</font>
    <br><br>
    <span class="inthissectionlink"><img src="/images/arrowroundsmall.jpg" width="12" height="11"><a href="http://www.hilite.org/special/groundbreaking/groundbreaking.shtml" target="_blank"><font size="1"> Click here for pictures of the the groundbreaking ceremony</a></font>
    <br>
    
    </body>
    </html>
    The bolded section is the part where if you see on the page is "missing"...I dont know how to invoke this but its a MOVIE...and its embedded using flash...so should i use the .swf file or the .html and if i use eiether is there is a special way to use it?

    Thanks

    are u trying to embed a .html file? it doesn't work that way, the src should be a media file, and you can use the embed tags, or get a player generated here

    one solution would be to iframe in a page that consists of just the video, javascript menus can pass over iframes, or try setting the z-index of your menu to something greater than the movie, and something else you have to understand we aren't here 24/7, it can take days for someone to answer your questions so be patient
