[resolved] Embed a streaming video url (4 posts)

    I am trying to get a video to stream on my WordPress 3.6 installation.
    The url of the stream is below:


    The below code is generated when I embed the video and the video does play correctly.

    <iframe src="http://www.filmon.com/tv/channel/export?channel_id=14&affid=9103Fz" height="240" width="320"></iframe>

    However I do not want the video to play automatically. I would prefer a 'play' button or something like that.

    Any ideas on how to do that. Perhaps what I am doing is not the best way to embed this video stream , so any different advice is welcome.

    Thanks for that information Media X.

    I am a FilmOn affiliate and they provide the links to embed. You can check the Affiliate link on their website.

    Anyone have any help with my question. In any case it needn't be FilmOn related now does it.

    I used the Easy FancyBox plugin which allowed the iframe to display in a light-box instead.

    Kind of got what I wanted, in that you need to click on it now before it will play.
