    flash video player.

    Alternatively, you can use the embed html code, but i don't really like using wm player or quicktime for embedding stuff.

    there's this huge ghastly fucking fish/logo thing in the bottom right corner taking up 1/3 of the screen in the unregistered version.

    I think you can accomplish this with simple htaccess files. If you only allow requests to come from your domain and block ^$ (or something like that) they will work in a web browser but can't be opened separately ..

    I did something similar but backwards, you have to right click, save as, you can't stream movies from my servers:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !^Mozilla*
    RewriteRule \.(mp3|mpg|mpeg|wma|wmv|avi)$ - [F,NC]


    Just a thought ...

    I use it for both my myspace page and playing mp3s, as well as my sites with a single embeded video. (nws cupvid.com, nws)

    Cool
    Is that like a 2g1c spin off?

    If you have a cool domain name and a single vid with some aff and other ads. You think it has a chance?
