Support » Fixing WordPress » Embed video code & Streaming inline video plugins

  • I came across this code so I tried to make it work on my site. However, all that appears is a white box the width of what the video is supposed to be.

    Also, are there any video plugins that allow streaming inline videos such as flv or mp4? AND, allow guests to upload videos to our site?
    Any help with this code would be greatly appreciated!

    I’ve tried WP Video Posts and it doesn’t work right. It puts a link and then when I go to view the link as a video is gives me a 404 error.

    <object width="420" height="315" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="src" value="http://www.mydomain.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/funny movie" /><param name="funny" value="" /><param name="funny" value="" /><param name="flv" value="" /><param name="autoplay" value="autoplay" /><param name="controller" value="true" /><param name="loop" value="loop" /><embed width="420" height="315" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.right2defend.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/funny movie" carry="" funny="" flv="" autoplay="autoplay" controller="true" loop="loop" /></object>

    Thanks,

    Embedding your own MP4 or FLV (or AVI, WMV, etc…) can be challenging. And embedding code like that is even more problematic.

    You’ve probably looked already but have you searched for a plugin to handle that?

    How are you uploading those videos? I mean do you upload them separately and save the URL path for the plugin or does the plugin you are using handle that?

    The reason I’m asking is that you got

    The code you’ve pasted above doesn’t reference a file name, just the path. It could be the spaces, or it could be how the plugin works.

    I uploaded them via ftp and then used Add From Server into Media Library.

    Yes, I’ve looked at several plugins for embedding videos. However, I was hoping that someone who has had luck with streaming inline videos would reply with a plugin that works as advertised. That’s how I found WP Video Posts. I’ve tried a couple of other ones but I can’t remember what they were.

    Also, I thought that you could just use the Add Media button but that doesn’t work.

    I think for now you may be better off waiting. WordPress 3.6 will include some built in support for doing exactly what you want to do.

    Audio / Video support in Core

    No, I don’t know when 3.6 will be release except to say “When it’s done”. 😉

    Also, I thought that you could just use the Add Media button but that doesn’t work.

    It could work in 3.6 beta but as I said it’s problematic. On my multisite installation I just had to add the video extension via

    http://my-url-here/wp-admin/network/settings.php

    On a regular stand alone you need a plugin to permit that. I’ve used this one but I’ve not tried it for over a year and don’t know if it still works wuth 3.5.1.

    I ran into the PHP max_file_upload and had to play around with that. And the theme that I am using interferes with the javascript so I can’t use it yet myself.
