The Embedded Media HTML Generator has been developed to make it easier to insert video and animations into web pages.

This utility works for Flash (.swf), Quicktime (.mov), Real Media (.rm or .ram), and Windows Media (.wmv or .wma) files.

I used the Embedded Media HTML Generator to embed the below Quicktime Apple iPad presentation.

height="350" codebase='http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab'> controller="false" loop="false" pluginspage='http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/'>

The one thing I didn’t like about the above embedded Quicktime .mov is that it doesn’t show a movie poster.

So I looked a bit further and I found the Embed QuickTime jQuery Plugin that uses jquery-1.2.1.pack.js and jquery.embedquicktime.js to facilitated clicking a graphics movie poster of the embedded video to start the Quicktime video.

Here is what Embed QuickTime jQuery Plugin produces and as you can see it looks quite a bit better. Click anywhere on the below Movie Poster and the Quicktime video will start.

The QuickTime Embed Plugin was one other plugin that I found that look really good. You need a .mov Movie Poster and I didn’t have any quick way to product a .mov Movie Posters so I settled for using the Embed QuickTime jQuery Plugin.

Perhaps if I find some time later I will look into the QuickTime Embed Plugin further and find a quick way to produce a .mov Movie Poster.
