    Hello,

    I know how to embed YouTube videos, etc.

    But, if I upload a video to the Media Gallery, how can I embed that in a WP post?

    Is there a plugin that I need?

    Thanks,
    Mona

    For all the video I have hosted and my WordPress site (video uploaded via the wordpress video upload tab), I use

    <video src="INSERT YOUR FILE URL HERE" controls="controls" width="640" height="480"></video>

    Pasted in the HTML tab, this will embed the video in a player directly on your site, but the only problem is it only works on Apple Safari and Google Chrome, not in Firefox and IE!?!

    If anyone knows what I need to do to change the code so it is visible by all browsers (I have been using .mov files which should be fine in all browsers), PLEASE HELP!!! :)

    Thanks,

    Colin
