This page has evolved to include three sections.
Section One is about how to utilize AVI files within webpages with simple HTML language. The EMBED tag is discussed along with a brief mention of the OBJECT tag. Additionally, in this section you will see the animation file.
Section Two is about the AVI itself, what software it was created with (PC Animate Plus) and two very important converters needed to change the native PC Animate Plus file (ANI type) to Windows supported AVI format. Additionally, these converters are available here for download.
Section Three is for FST, FRONTIER ELITE II, or STUNT ISLAND users who may wish to make AVI movies.
SECTION ONE: Utilizing AVI files with your webpage or HTML document.
Below is a simple hyper-link with the target an AVI file. If you click on it, the the Windows Media Player (or other associated player) is launched and the file is played. This is best for fast loading pages.

The next method to utilize an AVI file with the HTML document makes use of the EMBED SRC command or tag.
Note: the ALIGN="center" param does not appear to work (at least not for me), though there is a work-around with the html CENTER command. However, ALIGN="left" or "right" DO work. Also, in the below, the AVI cycles as the LOOP="1" param is used, if you choose "0" it plays only once. If you bring your mouse over the playing AVI, you can stop and start the file by left clicking on it. Finally, the param CONTROLLER="false" removes user controls from the page. here is the full html statement:
<EMBED SRC="flyby1.avi" WIDTH=640 HEIGHT=480 AUTOSTART=true LOOP=true>
