    My hosting does not allow ffmpeg and I bought my website to host videos, I am trying to find a plugin that will let me upload my videos, because when i upload my videos using wordpress it is just a link. How do I make it an actual video and not a link. I am using the right video file type. Please Help.

    This depends the file extension...
    I don't know ffmpeg, I presume file extension is .mpg or .mpeg ?

    Try Video Embed & Thumbnail Generator

    Nope. To play an ffmpeg video, you need to have FFMPEG installed on your server. You might be better off converting your videos to another format (such as mp4) before trying to upload them.

    In which case are you ?
    - You display only a link (link mean it's only text that point to a video file).
    - You display embed player (allows you to play video files like mp4, mov, avi...)

    No - you'll still need a player plugin but using mp4 will give you a better quality of video at a far smaller file size. You should also find that your hosts won't have a problem with .mp4 files.

    They don't have a problem with the file types they just said they cannot use FFMPEG, any video uploading plugins you suggest? It turns it into a link that I click and takes me to the file on my laptop. Is embeding the same as uploading?

    No, it's not the same. You embed the file (display a video player to play your video) after uploaded it on your server.

    Riversatile, have any good embedding plugins besides the one previously stated, because that one requires FFMPEG.

    I'm not sure to understand your sentence... (I'm French, sorry)

    This requires to install FFMPEG on your web server first.

    Le plug-in que vous avez récemment déclaré nécessite d'avoir mon serveur FFMPEG, ce que je n'ai pas. D'autres suggestions vidéo incorporation de plugins qui ne nécessitent pas FFMPEG?

    These are English language forums. Please stick to using English.

    Did you have a look at any of the video player plugins that I linked to above?

    Okay, I speak english I was translating for riversatile. I cannot seem to find them can you link them again? And so I put a file in my media library then get the link to the file and use the embedder to put it on my website. I do that after I get an embedder plugin right? Please list the plugins again, I cannot find them.

    I know I need the plugin to do that, but like... I link the files that are already archived in my media library?

    That will depend upon the player plugin that you choose. Some allow you to add the video url as a custom field - in which case you can copy the video's url as listed in the Media Library.

    @LiamMrk You need to do a number of things before you upload the mp4 file with the Media uploader.

    1. Check that your blog can upload MP4 files. SOmething like Network Admin : Settings -> Network Settings : Upload File Types -- mp4
    2. Check that you have sufficiently large max upload file size set. In the Network Settings above 'Max upload file size: 131,072' = 128Mb.
    3. Open the raw video with a compressor such as VideoMonkey (Mac only) to compress the video to mp4/mv4. I compressed a 256Mb capture down to 18Mb at 1280 x 720.
    4. Upload the compressed mp4 with the media uploader
    5. To display in a blog post or page you'll need to use a video display plugin. The link above gives you a list. I use MediaElemnts.js but I have to type in the shortcode manually -- there's no editor icon to auto create the shortcode

    FFMPEG is an open source system for converting and crunching videos. You won't be able to run this on a normal web site that you'd get from a provider. Use VideoMonkey or similar on your home machine. I believe Videomonkey uses the FFMpeg code.

    There's a lot involved in massaging and displaying video -- maybe you should upload to Youtube ?

    1. That setting is specific to multi-site installs only.

    2. Since the OP indicated that these files are already in the Media Library, that doesn't seem to be the issue. If it was, I'd recommend using FTP and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-from-server/

    Go to my website and see what the video says. That file does exist. Example is on the front page.
