So far, I've found all my answers here and can't thank everyone around here enough! excellent write-ups!
One issue I've been struggling with however, is a project that hopefully someone will be able to help out with! I am building a slideshow for an eye doctors office, it's built with HTML5 and runs full screen in Midori. It runs great, right until it hits the commercial. I've tried h.264, mpeg, avi and still can't get it to playback in the midori web browser. It plays fine in GNOME player, but not in the browser. The video is very choppy in GNOME. Am I missing something here, something better to use? or just nix the commercial all together?
Any help here would be great!
