4 years ago
I want to embed a movie (.wmv) in a page or post. Is this possible?
I’ve uploaded the wmv-file in my media-uploads, so I can create a link to it, but as said… I want to embed it into a page or post.
Any suggestions? Usefull plugins? Html-code,…?
Thanks in advance!
Ps: I also tried to do it with youtube, but thats not such a “clean” solution (advertisements,…)
Google is your friend: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_videos.asp
depending on your traffic, youtube might really be the best bet – you get simple embeds already built in to WP, plus you don’t host the file – it can be slow/high resource demand
But if you do wish to host your own, there are several plugins which can help with local video hosting – Viper’s video quicktags off the top of my head used to work for me
