Embed video for browser playback

Is there any format or embedding technique that will allow a video to be played back directly in the BB browser.  Or is there a technique to launch the video, similar to the events that allow a user to open a video attached to an email?

You an embed a video on a website as you see it on youtube but the browser will launch the media player inorder to play it.

Re: Embed video for browser playback

YouTube uses rtsp protocol.  Is there a specific place I have to upload files on my server or do I need a certain type of server to support linking to a rtsp location where a video resides?  I uploaded a video and attempted to navigate to is with the BB browser using rtsp instead of http but I receive an error saying the server is blocked or unresponsive.
