Best way to implement a short video into a website

    Hi everyone,

    I'm working on a website for a dental company and they would like to implement a small 30 sec animation video. It's original size is about 14mb, I have only been able to compress it to 6mb. (that still seems very big!)
    What tips could you give me to make it so I can reduce the video to a small size whilst keeping the quality and also how could I make it load up seperatly from the website?

    Hi, you could host it on something like Vimeo then use the embed code, I've done this for videos in the past and it works quite well, or you could host it yourself and then use something like flowplayer to view it.

    Sounds like a good idea, I will try that.

    Thanks for your help.

    Or you can lead it to your Facebook Fan Page. The viewers can automatically click "Like" on your video, populating it eventually . Hope it helps

    Kind Regards

    I have checked out their site but it seems you have to pay to diplay without adverts,
    is there a free alternative, I don't mind if it involves coding, flash.....
