Hi All,
I have a webpage which has a lot of animation movies on it. The movies are mpeg4's and are embedded in the page. How can I make them hidden/not display when the page is loading? I want them to 'not display' until the user clicks on the thumbnail.
Please help me as this is driving me insane!

Here's the page: http://www.styl3d.co.uk/AnimationT.html

Thanks for everybody's time on this.

Colorbox JS is a solution for this.
http://colorpowered.com/colorbox/

You'll see the very obvious download button at top left. Download the file from that page and then open any one of the example files & open the html page in your browser. You'll see the "Flash/Video Ajax Embedded link. Click on it. It'll open up a window which has the functionality you want. All you have to do from there is conform it to your page & you'll already have the files you need.
