So it's going to be awhile before the big media companies get a clue
and start making it easier for me to promote their stuff on my web site, but in the meantime there are tools out there that can make it less painful. Our pal Russell Heimlich from DV Guru points us
to Embedded Media HTML Generator
, an easy-to-use web service that will generate the HTML needed to embed QuickTime, Real, Windows Media, and Flash files in your web site. You can specify the path to a file, your desired width and height, and other options like autoplay and looping. Of course, a lot of web sites expressly forbid you from embedding their video on other web sites, and some have technical hurdles in place that prevent it, but in places where that's not the case, Embedded Media HTML Generator is your friend.
