I work in broadcast production; dabble in xTalk...
Colin's method of playing h.264 files via flash is the way to go
for cross compatibility if you want to roll your own. If you
Google it, you can find all kinds of step by step instructions,
However, I have found that the YouTube/Vimeo/etc. servers are so
FAST, that I have moved to using them, embedding the videos on my
site. Yes, I hate having their logo on my work, but I decided my
users would have a better impression of us if the video started
almost immediately than to wait for it to buffer as it streams
off our web host's server....
