    I'm using the Twenty Twelve wordpress theme and am having trouble installing video to my pages.
    I can insert a media file from my computer which shows as a link, but i'd like it to show as a video screen that plays on the page. Do I need a certain plug in to achieve this?
    Any help is appreciated.

    A common method to do this is to upload your video to YouTube and then grab the embed code from them and then paste that it in HTML view in a Page or Post...Why? Video streaming consumes much server bandwidth...There are also other video streaming services...

    To add to the above, see: http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds

    You can't link from a live site to a video on your local computer unless it's accessible from the internet.
