Hello, and welcome to the "Embed Video" tutorial.

Embed Video

Videos can be embedded into your web pages two different ways. One method is to use the <embed /> tag to display your media file. The embed tag does not require a closing tag. In fact, it works much like the image tag. A SRC attribute must be defined by the correct URL in order for the video file to be displayed correctly.

<embed src="videos/mariah_carey.mpeg" autostart="false" />



Video as a Link

You may also simply place the URL of your media files into the href attribute of an anchor tag, much like the concept of "thumbnailing" images.

<a href="videos/mariah_carey.mpeg"> Mariah Carey Video </a>
