Frames in Rails

Hi there

I'm relatively new to rails (and web development).

I want to insert a video into my site which can keep playing even when
the user is browsing between pages. Should i do this with Frames or

I tried to implement it using frames but got a little stuck...

My site has the welcome (home) page which contains no frames: (
Then there is the page to display once someone has logged in:

All pages except the home page use the application.html.erb layout.

I'm not sure how to integrate the frames html when I am using the
application layout.

Any help would be really appreciated.



Use another layout.

Regardless of what I call the layout file, I still dont know how to make
this work.

I was thinking of making my application.html.erb something like this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
  <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />
  <%= stylesheet_link_tag 'style' %>
  <%= javascript_include_tag :defaults %>

<FRAMESET cols="900, *">
<FRAME src="/user/login">


<FRAME src="video.html.erb???">



Unfortunately this is just rendering a blank frame.
I have a whole bunch of other stuff I need to include like headers and
footers which also previously went in application.html.erb, but I am
unsure where to put that code now. How do I still include them?



Also, is frames even the best way to do this??
I did a little test and it seems the URL will not change as I browse
through my site when I am using frames. It will only keep original page
with the frameset in the URL bar rather than the URL of the individual
active frame.
Surely there is a better way of doing this?
