  • I’m using thesis and I’m trying to add a video, but when I go to edit it just adds a video link, and when I go to the multimedia box upload, the video goes to the right sidebar. How do I add a video to my post?

  • In order to have video’s on my blog I have to first upload them to vimeo or youtube, and then click on the add media for vimeo or youtube buttons and put in the specific links to the videos.

    Hope that helps.

    I am having the same issue as soufavelado. I’d like to upload videos directly into a post in Thesis, but when I try I get this message: “This file is too big. Your php.ini upload_max_filesize is 2M.” Not sure why the limit is 2M or how to change it.

    I can easily embed a YouTube video, but would rather not have to link to them. What’s the easiest way to upload my own videos? Do I need a plug-in?
    Appreciate any help. Thanks!

    sounds like you need to increase your upload limit.

    Best place to start is by editing or creating a php.ini file if your host allows it

    a google search will get you many sample php.ini examples

    I did a little research about creating a php.ini and I think it’s a bit beyond my ability. Is there an easier way to add videos? Is the other option to embed something like YouTube? Thanks!

    well, you could just up your video to youtube or one of many other sites, and use this plugin to embed

    but a php.ini file is pretty simple really….
    first, find out if your host allows it…

    then just make a file named php.ini with something like this in it:

    post_max_size = 64M
    file_uploads = On
    upload_max_filesize = 64M

    you can add other things, etc….this is just one example from mine….

    Thanks RVoodoo! Appreciate your help!

    looks like great advice. one question though, where do I put the new php.ini file?

    thanks!
