    I have a video clip that I want shown on my website. I downloaded it and now it is a file in the windows media player format. Let's say it is the video clip that is the death scene from "The Interview" and I am sure youtube would remove it. So, how do I show the video on my website without using youtube? I think I remember doing this with a third party tool.

    I remember something that is open source but I do not remember what it is called. As long as you were not doing it for profit, you did not have to pay for it, as I recall.

    So why you want to risk being sued by displaying it on your own site???

    Windows media player format covers a LOT of ground, about the ONLY format it will not play is Matroska (mkv), so I would suggest that you find out the REAL format of the source file and look at HTML5 Video to embed it.

    I'm going close this thread, not because anything wrong has been done to this point, but because I think it's fair to say that any helpful answer provided will essentially be aiding illegal activity.
