    How to embed and play f4v files?

    Hi folks,

    I have a few large f4v files I need to play in my webpage. Can anyone please tell me how to do this?

    Can I play the files hosted on another server, rather than upload them to mine?

    It needs to work in IE 6 too. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Yes, you can do that. A typical scenario is that you pay for a CDN (content delivery network, like Rackspace) which dilivers the videos faster and for a lower cost. Or you could use YouTube, Vimeo etc.

    Here are some useful options for playing the video on your own pages (whether or not the video is hosted on your server or elsewhere):
