I looked at poster movies a while ago and chose to use a jpg since it was smaller. But if you are saying that I can use a poster movie, a small file, and have that load the video only when the user clicks on the play button, it's a great solution for me on TypePad. I'll have to look into this some more. If it works, then the TypePad archive page for that video will still have all the info I want people to read. --------- [ Please Note ] --------- If my email hosting service is rejecting your replies, please give me a phone call.
