Embedded movie in page or post (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I want to embed a movie (.wmv) in a page or post. Is this possible?
    I've uploaded the wmv-file in my media-uploads, so I can create a link to it, but as said... I want to embed it into a page or post.

    Any suggestions? Usefull plugins? Html-code,...?

    Thanks in advance!

    Ps: I also tried to do it with youtube, but thats not such a "clean" solution (advertisements,...)

    Vanwero.

    depending on your traffic, youtube might really be the best bet - you get simple embeds already built in to WP, plus you don't host the file - it can be slow/high resource demand

    But if you do wish to host your own, there are several plugins which can help with local video hosting - Viper's video quicktags off the top of my head used to work for me
