I know that there are many ways to place a movie on a webpage, however waht would be the best option in my case?
On a homepage I need to place a small movie of 194 pixels wide. The movie is about 10 min. Since it is a ‘chique’ school YouTube etc is not an option - no names allowed from free services. It just got to be ‘clean and simple’. Flashmovie? Or are there other options?
I would suggest you check out the instructions below. They are mostly about the iPhone, but what is there about video works on desktops, too. You’ll need Freeway 5.2 to do it. As a bonus, all those chic students (and parents?) will have an option that is optimized for their iPhones. The instructions for video are on the last two pages.

That’s a strange distinction. I wonder if Brightcove is blocked? http://www.brightcove.com - That’s a rather more grown-up alternative
to YouTube for embedding streaming Flash video content in sites.
Using a video-hosting service such as YouTube (etc.) means that the
load on the main site’s server is massively reduced. Depending on the
hosting deal this can mean the difference between getting extra
bandwidth bills or not.
Anyway, you can either use a Flash video solution, of which there are
a number (others can point them out), or use QuickTime .mov files.
The QuickTime route assumes the visitor has QT installed, but of
course every Mac user and also every PC user with iTunes or an iPod
or iPhone (which require iTunes) has QuickTime whether they like it
