Embedding Mpeg-4 Media Files Using HTML

Embedding MPEG4 media files using HTML

MPEG-4 was developed in the late 1990s. Initially development was supported by many companies including Apple, DIV-X and Microsoft, but Microsoft has since abandoned active support. MPEG-4 is a very good quality standard with low file sizes.

Embedding MPEG-4 video file into your web page requires the use of specific HTML code.

The following code will embed a MPEG-4 media file for use with QuickTime or compatible.

 

 

<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab"
WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="180" >
<PARAM NAME="src" VALUE="videofilename.mp4">
<PARAM NAME="autoplay" VALUE="true" >
<EMBED SRC="videofilename.mp4" TYPE="image/x-macpaint"
PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download"
WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="180" AUTOPLAY="true">
</EMBED>
</OBJECT>

 

To use the file you will need to replace the following parameters:

  • Replace the “video-filename.mp4” with your mp4 or mov filename.
  • Replace WIDTH and HEIGHT as required, i.e. 320 and 256 respectively.
  • Decide if you want AUTOPLAY to be “true” or “false”.
  • Do not modify the <OBJECT> tag parameters, these are required for browsers using ActiveX support such as Internet Explorer.
  • Do not modify the <EMBED> tag parameters, these are required for browsers such as Mozilla FireFox.

<OBJECT> Tag Parameters

 

CLASSID - This tells the browser what file type to expect and which application should handle it.
CODEBASE - This instructs the browser where to find QuickTime movie player if it is not already installed.
WIDTH and HEIGHT - Width and height of displayed image in pixels.
PARAM NAME="src" VALUE - The URL to your file.
PARAM NAME="autoplay" VALUE - When "true" the video clip will begin playing as soon as it completes loading.
PARAM NAME="controller" VALUE - When "true" the movie controllers will be visible. Default is "true".

 

<EMBED> Tag Parameters

 

SRC - The URL to your file.
PLUGINSPAGE - This instructs the browser where to find QuickTime movie player if it is not already installed.
WIDTH and HEIGHT - Width and height of displayed image in pixels.

To use the code simply place it where you want your multimedia presentation to be shown in your web page.

Notes:

  • HTML elements are not case-sensitive.
  • Tag parameter values should always be enclosed in, “double quotation marks”.
