    Specific ones, or ones you make yourself?

    If you have specific ones in mind, a la youtube or something, then use the included embed tags on those pages.

    If you want to make your own...

    go to adobe.com download a trial of Flash CS3, get a couple books, open about 12 tabs in your browser to Flash tutorials and get a huge pot of coffee brewing.

    And plan to give Medyman and me a ton of "thanks"

    I was wondering, how come websites use flash video players for their videos and not just put an embaded windows media player to play a video that they have?

    Because not everyone can use WMP. And coding for one "more universal" player like Flash is easier than trying to make a video compatible with which ever default player a visitor may be using.

    as for the second post. I haven't looked closely at the source, but I will see what I can find out for you later, if no one else has been through to explain it.

    I'm pretty sure that's the Jeroen Wijering player.

    It's a fairly customizable flash media player...very flexible in it's utility. Certainly, the best free one out there (without having to code from scratch).

    He has several versions available. JW Flash Media Player to display images and play .swf, .flv, and .mp3 files and JW FLV Player for a strictly video (.flv) application are two of them (there's also an image rotator and mp3 player, if interested).

    Cool, thanks that looks great! I see that it requires some licensing, are you sure it's free? Thanks!
