I see your point, though I don't really like the idea of relying on proprietary standards. Can't you just use Flash to develop your controls?

they are there — and lots of viewers won't. But since I just joined
this list… I may have missed relevant discussion on flash video.

Cool! Even *I* didn't know they were there! Demonstrating my total
ignorance once again… So I could have skipped the Javascript on my
web pages (e.g., http://www.straughan.com/vlog/082204.html )

This doesn't solve the scrubber/progress bar problem, but does have
just about every other control we could ask for.

The advantages of using Flash, from my POV, are these:

– Apparently it has the largest installed base – something like 96% of
viewers already have the necessary plug-in installed, which is not
true of any other format, according to information posted here (and
elsewhere).

– I needed to learn how to put video on a corporate website and, for
the above reason, it seems like the best option – there are situations
where you *don't* want controls displayed, just a simple window.
