    How to hide video before it plays?


    I am using the following to put a video on a wordpress site:
    <param name="src" value="http://www.mywebsite.com/announcement.mov">
    <param name="autoplay" value="true">
    <param name="type" value="video/quicktime" height="560" width="950">

    <embed src="http://www.mywebsite.com/announcement.mov" height="560" width="950" autoplay="false" type="video/quicktime" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">

    Right now, when you are on the webpage, and look at the video before you press play, it shows the beginning image (a still image) of when the video begins. Then, when you click play, it begins playing the video from that beginning image. I was just wondering if there is a way to make it so that you can hide it so they can't see the opening image until they click the play button to watch the video.
