I agree with all the advantages of HTML Video. How do you use html video on your iweb site?

I want my iWeb site video to be viewable on iPads.

I have learned the technique to use the HTML Snippet tool in iWeb to successfully post Flash video. I created all of my animations using Kenote's keyframe ability and have exported them to Quicktime and then have converted them into flash with Vertical Moon's Video to SWF. Then simply upload the SWF file to a folder on your idisk, then use the Flash Video insert HTML Snippet and insert the idisk url of the SWF file and you are done. What is the technique for HTML Video?

I have found some HTML video encoders, here are the links:
http://www.projekktor.com/ the technique is not clear to me and appears complicated.
http://www.brightcove.com/en/ this one is way too expensive at $99 a month.
http://jilion.com/sublime/video this one looks great but is not yet available and I am guessing it is a converter that will make your iMovie Quicktime into HTML Video.

I have all of the i-Apps and Final Cut Express (2 revs out of date). Can I get the proper HTML video file from these programs, unless I am missing something I don't think so.

Most people do not believe I made my site completely with Keynote and iWeb but here it is. http//www.falcon-pacific.com

Thank You Very Much for considering my question. I will put the results on my iWeb site and the exact procedure and acknowledge all the sources of the solution.

    Your videos ARE viewable on a iPad. No need for explicit HTML video coding.

    If you export your movies to iPhone that's all there is to do. You can do it in QT Pro/iMovie

    And HTML Video is a HTML code, not the movie itself :

    <video width="480" height="270" src="movie.m4v" controls></video>

    I use the iPad simulator in the SDK :

    Here's the result :

    Dear Wyodor:

    Dear Wyodor: I want the video to also be viewable for PC Users too. So far this HTML Video Thing is becoming as clear as mud. I need some more help. On this HTML Video thing, I am just befuddled why Apple would introduce the iPad and not offer a solution in iWeb that solves this universal video problem for Mac and PC Users. Most PC Users choke on Quicktime, especially in a corporate environment where users are not allowed to download and install Quicktime. What to do. I am urgently waiting for SublimeVideo, I think they get it, my guess is it will be as convenient as using Vertical Moon's Video to SWF. Also I am shocked that I am not reading more about Universal HTML Video Players in iWeb or as you say how to put in the HTML Code so non Flash Videos will show in an HTML Player. I will be grateful for any additional comments you will make.
