DYNSRC = "URL"
|Not recommend for modern browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer|
DYNSRC (short for DYNnamic SouRCe) loads a movie file
instead of a still picture file. Browsers that recognize
DYNSRC will ignore
you can use both in the same tag.
This code loads an MPEG file (MPEG is one of the major formats for movie files; AVI is another major format):
DYNSRC="../graphics/moonflag.mpg" ALT="Astronauts on the moon">
which produces this movie:
By default, the movie plays once as soon as the page is loaded, so even if your browser recognizes
DYNSRC, you probably just see a still picture (the last frame of the movie). Usually clicking or double-clicking will restart the movie.
START can be used to modify the behavior of the movie.
Do not use
DYNSRC in the same tag as
LOOP. There are inconsistent and unpredictable results as to which attribute takes precedence. Note also that we left out the
WIDTH attributes. These attributes are inconsistently rendered for movies. In particular, if you use the
CONTROLS attribute, Internet Explorer will squeeze the movie vertically to fit the controls in the allotted height.
