I need to put up a link to a video on a page, but I have a question. if I used something like this:
<a href="video/2008.mp4">Play a video file</a>
It opens in a new window (well, the same window, new page), and I wanted to know, doesn't the person viewing the video have to have something to view the video in installed to their computer or else it would prompt them to download something, is that right?
The client I am doing the site for wants something more like a link that opens up the video, maybe in something like a lightbox or something. Is there a plugin out there that can do this? He doesn't want the video actually embedded on the page, but I also don't think he will want the viewer to have to download anything to view the video. Is there a way around this? Or like I said, a plugin that does what I'm looking for?
