Including the Timelapse Movie on Your Web Site or Blog

To include the movie (or WebCam image, for that matter) on a Web page or blog post, you’ll need to insert HTML code that references the URL of the image.

For a timelapse movie, use this code:

<embed src="http://www.yourdomain.com/pathtomovie" width="n" height="n+16" autoplay="false"></embed>

Now the XHTML purists out there will tell me that using the embed tag is a big no-no. I know that. Unfortunately, it’s the easiest way to get the job done and it does work in most situations.

However, if you’re interested in doing it right and you’re not afraid of a little JavaScript coding, check out Apple’s tutorial: Including QuickTime In A Web Page. Or, if you’re a WordPress user with a server installation of WordPress, try the QuickTime Embed plugin by aosan Yeo. That’s what I use.
