displaying movies after exporting them through quicktime web export

  1. i am kicking off my new blog here at wordpress and i am trying to embed some video footage. i have found the best codec for my files is by using the quicktime export for web, which gives me a folder containing a poster frame, reference movie, and a .m4v file. i have uploaded this folder to my server and it came with instructions on how to code it into my 'website'- this case blog entry. however it said to put this code in the head of my page:

    <script src="http://www.apple.com/library/quicktime/scripts/ac_quicktime.js" language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="http://www.apple.com/library/quicktime/scripts/qtp_library.js" language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <link href="http://www.apple.com/library/quicktime/stylesheets/qtp_library.css" rel="StyleSheet" type="text/css" />

    and then this is the code for the embed video:

    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
    QT_WritePoster_XHTML('Click to Play', 'stop_web-poster.jpg',
    'stop_web.mov',
    '450', '269', '',
    'controller', 'true',
    'autoplay', 'true',
    'bgcolor', 'black',
    'scale', 'aspect');
    //-->
    </script>
    <noscript>
    <object width="450" height="269" classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab">
    <param name="src" value="stop_web-poster.jpg" />
    <param name="href" value="stop_web.mov" />
    <param name="target" value="myself" />
    <param name="controller" value="false" />
    <param name="autoplay" value="false" />
    <param name="scale" value="aspect" />
    <embed width="450" height="269" type="video/quicktime" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"
    src="stop_web-poster.jpg"
    href="stop_web.mov"
    target="myself"
    controller="false"
    autoplay="false"
    scale="aspect">
    </embed>
    </object>
    </noscript>

    is this javascript and is this not cool to use at wordpress? is there a way around this, as in some other code that i don't know? does anyone have any suggestions on how to embed my movie files?
