How can I play video file in web application? I do not want to use applet. I can not upload a video to various websites like youtube or metacafe and embed their plugin in my webapp.

I will have video file and want to play it with basic functionalities play,pause and stop.

I'm sure there are basic Flash video players available for free somewhere on the net. Make sure that whatever site ends up hosting the video file doesn't charge you for download costs per MB, because that's going to be expensive.

Why can you not upload the file to YouTube? It would be much easier than anything you would cook up on your own.

Because my client does not want anything out of her premises.

Isn't there anything available in Java? Should I dig into Java Media Player API. Ref. http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-04-1997/jw-04-jmf.html?page=1

As Java runs on the server (except for applets -- which you've already dismissed), how is that going to help you?
