    start video object with still image

    Hello,
    In my page, I have a video that I have 'autostart=false', which
    works in IE, but FF ignores the command and starts playing it
    automatically.

    http://www.hydrabrush.com/pages/02.html

    I actually have 3 questions:

    1. Researching the web, I found an opinion
    at alistapart.com that it is better to use the OBJECT tag, as opposed to the
    EMBED tag. Is that true?

    2. How do I get FF to comply with the autostart=false command?

    3. Is there a way to code the OBJECT tag so that I can show a particular frame of the video (until the user clicks the play button)?

    Thanks!

    Rob

    1. Yes. (object is the correct way).

    2. It depends on the proprietary attributes of the plugin params amongst over things.

    3. Possibly SMIL.
