Add JW Player to theme_actions.php (2 posts)

    I have downloaded the JW player plugin and would like to add a MP4 video to my home page.

    The only way I can see to do this is by editing the theme_actions.php file - please see code below and where I would like to enter the code for the video...

    I have tried reading about adding shortcode within the PHP file, but I am not very experienced in coding and couldn't make it work, so any help would be gratefully appreciated - please make it very noob friendly.

    <!--Start Entry Wrapper-->
                                <div id="entry_wrapper">
                                    <div class="grid_10 alpha">
                                        <!--Start Entry-->
                                        <div class="entry">
                                        <?php
                                              echo "<h1 class='entry_heading'>Boost your technique with online video tutorials!</h1>

                                              ?>
                                         <?php
                                            if (inkthemes_get_option('inkthemes_btn_text_1') != '') {
                                                echo '<a class="entry_btn" href="' . inkthemes_get_option('inkthemes_btn_link_1') . '"><span class="btn_left"></span><span class="btn_right">' . inkthemes_get_option('inkthemes_btn_text_1') . '</span></a>';
                                            } else {
                                                echo '<a class="entry_btn" href="#"><span class="btn_left"></span><span class="btn_right">Subscribe Now</span></a>';
                                            }
                                            ?>
                                        </div>
                                        <!--End Entry-->
                                    </div>
                                    <div class="grid_14 omega">
                                        <!--Start Vid content-->
                                        <div class="vid_content">                                      
    
                                            <div class="vid">
    
                                <!--I WANT MY VIDEO HERE -->
    
                                             </div>
                                        </div>
                                        <!--End Vid Content-->
                                    </div>
                                </div>
                                <!--End Entry Wrapper-->

    This is the shortcode of the video I want to use....
    [jwplayer player="1" mediaid="7" image="/wp-content/themes/subscribelytheme/functions/lib/images/default_image.jpg"]

    The video is MP4 and will be stored on my server.

    Many thanks

    You would have to add the regular set up code into the php file, like this - http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/28839/embedding-the-player
