Hi Praveen...

This is great....

I want some clarity about this video playing...

Can u send me the two php files with data base table....because the above two files are not matching with their column names...i am confusing....plz send me clearly with patiencs...

Thank u..

Why not just use FLV? its a lot simpler and will work in Firefox/Safari as well as IE
P.S. I know you can run WMP plugin in firefox but its an extra download you don't need (Not sure about Safari thoug)

yet another drop in media player
