Hi Vanish - your code won't load in FF. I read at
that I have to add this
before the width + height. So entire valid code reads:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/CuZAX18sSWE&hl=en&fs=1"
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/CuZAX18sSWE&hl=en&fs=1" /></object>
The problem with this is that IE loads the entire movie (does not stream) before it will show youtube pic.
He does give a hack for it, but only if you're able to create the movie yourself. I used animoto.com to convert static photos into a video, so I can't do what he says.
It seems there's no way round it.
(1) Embed works x-browser but validator throws it out, it's not part of xhtml specs. I'm too scared of leaving anything in that validator throws out because I don't want to trigger quirks mode.
(2) If I leave out data=, FF doesn't show youtube pic to click on
(3) If I include data=, IE loads the entire video before showing youtube pic to click on
I decided to go with (3) as the lesser of all evils, for adding youtube.
Am I doing the right thing?
