Sorry to ask a simple question that I fail to find an answer to. Is there a way to embed a video in a post/page that I have uploaded to my media library?
I am not interested in linking to youtube or other hosting platforms, just to my very own video clips. All I seem to be able to do is to post a click-able link in my post which will take the viewer to a separate page where the video will then load and play.
Instead, I would like to embed it directly in the post, ideally be able to choose the poster frame and make that clickable.
Is it a theme related issue? Right now I am experimenting with the Oxygen theme.
But I was actually hoping for a simpler solution than having to build a script or to install a player that comes with a watermark unless I pay for it to go away (and which requires me to embed code in the “<head> of your HTML page” – where would I find the <head> in the WordPress editor interface…?).
I was looking for either a theme or just the correct tag which would embed my uploaded media library videos.
