A short guide on ways to embed media on a website, with links to a number of widely used scripts.
There are a wide range of methods and scripts (both free and commercial) for embedding media on the web. This short list contains methods for embedding Flash, video and images using scripts that are search engine friendly, degrade gracefully and can be used in valid html and xhtml documents.
Embed QuickTime is a jQuery plugin that helps you embed QuickTime movies to play directly on your webpage, instead of redirecting your video to a separate page or forcing you to embed a video using Flash. It changes regular image links to the embedded QuickTime video when they are clicked. It works with .mov, .mp4 and .m4v files.
