    Movie file placeholder?

    Hi all,

    I'm putting together a help page for my web app and figured that rather than the usual 'Help' file stuff, I could put a short video help file along with an explanation.

    I have a page with around 12 topics, I'd like the user to be able to click a link and it shows a video clip (either .avi or mov file) on the page. It would be cool if the movie placeholder just showed the link to the movie that was clicked rather than a new page each time.

    I guess it could be a pop out with the movie and info in it.

    Any ideas folks?

    Thanks

    Jackmac

    you can use a div. Have a list of videos to pick from. when the user clicks the link, a div pops up like a modal dialog, with the video and the background is grayed out.
    if i was able to help, rate my post!
