    Hi.
    I am new to wordpress and I was wondering how to upload a video file so that it plays in a player and you can play and pause it. I have uploaded a video in .swf format on my post and on the website there is a link in green writing that takes you to a new page to view the video.
    I also have a shockwave player that I can upload but I am not sure how to do it.

    Please could someone help me.
    Thank you.

    The FLV Embed plugin is really good (search in the plugins on this site), but I think that your videos need to be in flash video format (.flv).

    I converted it to flv but when I try and play te file it downloads it and plays it in realplayer. I want it to play on the site page in a player so you can start/stop it.

    What do I need to do to get it to play on the site in a player?

    Use the plugin above. That plays in a player like on my site - example below:

    Thanks. I have activated the plugin so it is ready to use but I don't know how you can actually put a video file in the player and play it on the website.

    Please can you tell me what I need to do to put the video and video on the site
    Thanks.

    ...Read the directions on the authors site,

    http://www.channel-ai.com/blog/plugins/flv-embed/

    ...or you can take a look at the instructions in the "readme" file that came in the plugin folder you downloaded.

    ...or follow the "installation" instructions provided in the plugin directory (where you went to click on the link to download the plugin).
