[resolved] Video Player for homepage (7 posts)

    I'm trying to find a video player where it will give me code to embed the .mp4 into the homepage. All I find are ones that add a button to the text editor for inclusion in posts and pages but I'm just wanting to wrap it in a .div like a slider.

    Any ideas, i keep downloading and then having to deactivate when they don't do what I need.

    By the way, my client does not want the YouTube thing so that's why this is harder than normal.

    I use the TinyMCE Advanced editor plugin and it's insert Media tool; works just fine with self-hosted MP4s and inserting with the Visual editor, selecting media_dlg.iframe as the Type.

    As of 3.6, that wull be built in to WP, so there's that too.

    Thank for the responses, my Internet went down. I didn't make myself clear. My client is being weird about using YouTube or Vimeo but I know that some of her folks probably won't have updated their browser so I'm leary of using the new code. I was looking for a player that would handle the needs if any one knows of one that exists.

    Take a look here and I think those concerns will go away...

    The new code in WordPress should work for just about everyone.
