How do I stop my embedded videos from auto-playing?

I am very new to writing HTML and a friend wrote this code for me to upload videos to a webpage I am making. Unfortunately the videos load and play automatically when the page is opened. I cannot figure out what is going wrong and I cannot get in touch with the friend who wrote the code in the first place. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can edit the code below so that the videos will only load when a person clicks the "play" button?

<TABLE BORDER="0" CELLSPACING="15">
<TR>
<TD>
<object width="360" height="270">
<param id="video-param" name="movie" value="movies/ell.mp4">
<param name="controller" value="true">
<embed id="video-embed" src="movies/ell.mp4" controller="true" type="video/mp4" width="360" height="270"></embed>
</object>
</TD>

<object width="360" height="270">
<param id="video-param" name="movie" value="movies/esl.mp4">
<param name="controller" value="true">
<embed id="video-embed" src="movies/esl.mp4" controller="true" type="video/mp4" width="360" height="270"></embed>
</object>
</TD>
</TR>

<TD><i><div style="text-align: center;"><big>Long</big></i></TD>
<TD><i><div style="text-align: center;"><big>Short</big></i></TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>


Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

Have you tried setting the autoplay attribute?
