    I need some advice on attachments. For voice clips and videos. Is there a way to have the media played directly instead of going to an attachment page. If video's won't play, what could be the reason?

    When you insert the media into a Page or Post, ensure that you set the Link to Media File and not Attachment Page.

    Yes, i did set it to link to media, but it still reverted to the attachment page. Any idea why?

    Are the videos embedded from YouTube?

    Nope. It happens with sound clips and videos originally recorded by us and compresses to a smaller file size

    If you want videos and audio to play on your site, then you need to look for player plugins. You may need 1 for video and 1 for audio.

    Nope, it happens with podcasts and videos originally recorded by us and compressed to a smaller file size
