    Hi, I'm just trying to work out how to embed an amazon S3 hosted video.

    I can easily add one to the frontent using the JW video player and it's shortcode - but shortcode doesn't get processed in WP admin area i guess, so how can it be done?

    Are you using this plugin? I think maybe you posted this in the wrong place?

    Hi WPyogi, yes I'm trying to embed a video into WP Help

    I went to that plugin and at the bottom of 'support' I submitted this post, sorry if it is the wrong place. i'm new tp the WordPress forums ;)

    From what I gather, @morktron is in the right place. He wants to know if he can somehow use the shortcodes or otherwise embed video for S3 into his help documents. I'd like to know this too. I have a Woo Theme, which has shortcodes, but I can't get the "content toggle" shortcode to work. My hope is to use HTML5 video embed tags to have the videos toggled on click.

    Is there a place where the WP-Help code is enqueuing a script too late? Or where the shortcode scripts need to be enqueued first?

    @morktron, if you use code something like this, it will embed the video in your help document:
    <video width="320" height="240" controls>
    <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
    <source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
    Your browser does not support the video tag.

    The only thing is, if you have many videos, that help document will take a lot to load, and it will require a lot of calls to the server. Which is why I'd hoped to incorporate a media content toggle shortcode to have the page load the titles of the videos.

    You should be able to use any shortcodes or HTML that you can normally post.

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks for your reply.
    I made a quick video showing how I can use the WooTheme shortcodes in a normal post successfully, but when I try the same thing within the admin area, I don't get the same results. I hope you'll please look at it and let me know what I'm getting wrong.

    Thank you,
