Movie Rotator (2 posts)

    I'm using WordPress to build an attorney's website with a static front page.

    I want to have 3 videos rotate in a flash slideshow style repeatedly.

    Specifically, I want to buy 3 short stock footage movies from, say, iStock. One would be of police blue car lights flashing, the second, a couple arguing, and maybe, last, a will being signed. This would play repeatedly on the home page.

    When I search plugins using keywords like rotator or flash slideshow, my results seem to be meant for a flash slideshow of still images, not movies.

    What is this called? I'd so much appreciate any help and direction.

    If you are just cycling three movie files, you could edit them into a looping single movie rather than a movie slideshow.

    However if stock movie clips are being used illustratively rather than presenting a specific message, static images in a slideshow should do the job just as well and will be much more bandwidth efficient. Also any of your target audience visiting the site using an apple iDevice, they won't see any flash content anyway.
