    Hi everyone,

    My problem is this: I have a blog at the Blogger (blogspot.com), but now i want to try a new experience with WordPress. At my Blogger i have uploaded some videos (to their host), and those videos i want to transfer to my new WP site.

    I have copy the code of the video to the new post area, for example:

    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-xxxx-96b8-4x5xxxxxx000" width="320" height="266" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="id" value="BLOG_video-e4c1dxxxxxxxcd3f" /><embed id="BLOG_video-exxxxxxcd3f" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="320" height="266"></embed></object> (it's a sample)

    but when I post it appears blank in my front page, and in the editing area appears like in the photo:

    How can i solve this problem? What should i do to make those embed videos playable?

    thnx in advance, and pls help me.

    I'm certainly not an expert here, but I think it would be beneficial to you in the long run to simply transfer every one of those videos to your WordPress host (assuming that you're using a hosted setup).

    There are several reasons why moving the videos will be beneficial to you in the near and long term:

    1. It is unwise to make your media structure so complicated. If you make your blog dependent upon the servers hosting your videos to display the video, you could easily be blindsided by a blackout. In other words, if Blogspot goes down, even for maintenance, your readers will lose access to your videos. If you host them on the same server as your blog, the entire thing will be independent of outside systems.
    2. It will be easier and faster to backup your blog because you can do it all from your WordPress dashboard, as opposed to doing so at both WP and Blogspot.
    3. Upgrading. WordPress is not collecting any dust. The developers are almost always, it seems, releasing new versions. And then of course, there is a constant stream of new plugins to sort through. When that one gem of a plugin or the latest and greatest version of WP comes out that will allow you to embed media of all kinds as easily as drag and drop, you won't have the sum total of all the videos you have now, plus all the videos you've added between now and that day in the future, to transfer over. In essence, why move a LOT later when you can move a little now?

    Thnx man for ur ideas, u are great. Respect by my side

    I solved my problem, the tip is this: go to view source of the page, copy the videos wiith tags <object></object>, than paste the code to your wp post area. After that, the videos of Blogger are played in WP.

    HAve a good time!

    WP is GREAT!
