Support » Fixing WordPress » How do I embed a .mov file?

  • Hi!
    I am totaly new to WP and coding. And I wonder how I embed or include a videofile in to my page/post. (like a window that you click)
    I managed to do it with a youtube video, after I downloaded the ViperΒ΄s Video Plugin.

    Hope to get some answers that are easy to understand πŸ™‚

    type this into that big box when you create a post:

    <object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" height="256" width="320">
    
    <param name="src" value="http://www.yourdomain/your.mov">
    <param name="autoplay" value="true">
    <param name="type" value="video/quicktime" height="256" width="320">
    
    <embed src="http://www.yourdomain/your.mov" height="256" width="320" autoplay="true" type="video/quicktime" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">
    
    </object>

    Only change the stuff to match what you are embedding.

    thats taken right from a google search.

    the big box is where your “content” goes. so if you want something in your content thats where you type the stuff that creates that content.

    wordpress doesnt use any new fancy HTML -2 — it follows the same rules, and spits out the same stuff that all other web sites spit out.

    In other words, links are done exactly the same way, embeds are done the same way, everything can be done exactly the same way as any other ‘editor’. Thusly, all of the specifics are searchable.

    Will this work when i make my Page altso?

    youre not going to learn anything this way. try it in both. see what happens. the easiest way to learn how to use something, is by actually working with it πŸ™‚

    It worked fine in html πŸ™‚

    Help!

    Thanks for posting this code.

    The only problem is that the .mov is in “autoplay” mode. It runs the minute the reader opens the post.

    I want to have it start when they click an arrow because I want to embed 4 .mov’s in my post. I don’t want them to all go off at once.

    I followed your suggestion — I played with the code (I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing) and took out the obvious references to autoplay. But, it still autoplays.

    Any help would be deeply appreciated. I’m over my head.

    Steve

    prairiefire: change it so it reads autoplay=”false”
