Hello Alex

Sorry.. I don't know off-hand of a .mp4 player. I suggest trying to Google it and see if there are any possibilities that may work for you. Hopefully, others may be able to suggest something.

Sure it can: http://www.ehow.com/how_5903417_embed... You would have to provide a download link for your users to get the player.

Hi Alex,
Would you not be better off uploading the videos to a third party service like Youtube or Vimeo (I prefer Vimeo, very nice player) and then embedding them in your site. This way they would be more accessible and visitors wouldn't have to download the Quicktime plugin.

i thought having my own video player would make the site look more pro, even though im not a pro. i do like vimeos player, i may use that, youtubes player is to well known for me to use on ma site,

but thanks connor.

Hey Alex ... not sure if it will help but RealPlayer lets me play Mp4 files and also lets me download virtually any video I want ... I even picked up the full version of Pink Floyd The Wall from YouTube ... it is the complete 1 1/2 hour movie ... a true classic.

I would use RealPlayer for everything video related.

Good Luck and cheers
