Support » Fixing WordPress » Embed own video?

  • Hi forum.

    I am trying to add my own video into a post so that it plays. I have uploaded via the media uploader and also via ftp server. When I try to add it to post I get a link rather than a player.

    I have even tried adding [video][/video] tags as I have seen this before as a shortcode.

    Can anyone shed a light on this.

    Also if anyone can also answer how to make it appear in a lightbox style when as an alternative viewing method this would be great.

  • It would be easy if you just use e you-tube plugin, it saves you space as well on you’r hosted server!!

    Thanks for the reply hair-but. I agree it would be easier, however I have members content that I don’t want to put on youtube.


    Aha , so you want it private then yes!!!
    Then just make a private page and embed a video 🙂

    LMAO. Yes I want it private, but if I make a private page and embed surely people can still find it on youtube so they don’t need to pay 😉

    Thanks for replying though. I am sure there is a way of doing it i’ll just keep searching.


    then download a plugin player which is not for you-tube lol.
