I wanted to play a flv file in browser at home.
So i created html file containing
<head> stream local flv to browser without internet</head>
	<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=",0,40,0" width="480" height="360"> 
		<param name="flashvars" value="abc.flv&image=abc.jpg" />
		<param name="movie" value="mediaplayer.swf" />   
		<embed src="abc.swf" CONTROLLER=TRUE width="480" height="360" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" flashvars="file=abc.flv&image=abc.jpg" allowfullscreen="true" />
abc.flv (video to be played)
abc.jpg (thumbnail for video)
abc.swf (this is the player)
are all in folder containing html file.

I don't remember from where I got this abc.swf though player of megavideo & you tube did not work.

I do one more trick : create a link named abc.flv pointing to desired video file , so no need to copy video in same folder.

Rep: Reputation: 49 says you should use 'video/x-msvideo' as type.

<embed src="abc.avi" allowfullscreen="true" />
You can specify border,width,height.

Javascript buttons did not do anything.
