Yes, I have written a simple xhtml example which embed a video on my harddisk, I include it with:

 <embed src="file:///path_to_my_video/video.mpg" type="video/mpeg"/>

In this way all works fine, but it doesn't with seaside.

I have also tried it out with the object tag, but in this way my browser shows nothing, with embed tag I can see at least the Q within ? which indicates me that the browser knows to use a plugin.
