    Can someone instruct me on how to make an html page load a video from my local machine?

    I need this for a kiosk I am setting up.

    Thanks!

    I asume the kiosk will be running the HTML file locally too?

    If your using a video player its pretty easy, just point it to the directory the file is in.

    If you need a player check out

    Code:
