hmm, been a while since I put movies in .. but I believe it is
< embed src="someFile.avi" >
and you can specify width and height to restrict the size of it (you can cheaply control which controls they have like this) and I think autostart and loop as true or false

well i just checked out your source code and you have something like:
<img blah blah

get rid of the img and put in embed, because the movie is not an image.

just remember that most people don't have the codec to view avi files so they probably won't be able to see it.

Old topics...

AVI is really just a bunch of different formats, named the same thing as a standard, afaik.
