Slide Show with Movies

I've been working on a modified slide show file that will integrate in a SharePoint picture library and play movies along with the photos. It's been fun and frustrating, but I'm real close.

It's a data view and a LOT of JavaScript and xsl.

I had hoped to start with the MS slide show (slidshow.aspx) and add in the movie functionality, but instead I had to pretty much rebuild it myself. My camera takes quick time (.mov) files so I'm working those in first. Right now they seem to be taking over the whole window when they come up, so it's probably just a parameter in the object tag I'm generating. I also need to figure out how to move on to the next file after the movie is finished playing. Right now, it's in the 5 second slide show, so (if I get it to play in the set window), it will just move to the next file after 5 seconds. After I get that working, I'll add in the .avi type.

It should be a pretty easy export, so I'll make it available when I'm done.
