How to upload & embed videos, and mp3's into wordpress (8 posts)

    Hello this is my first support but I want to figure out what to do on some things.

    My host is Bluehost.

    I have a video that I am trying to play but when inserted with any video player I get a error or it only gives me a link to the video file

    Go to post
    Go to insert media
    Insert video file with jw player
    View post after publish
    I also cannot make any video or mp3 files play or even get embeded in my post or pages. The mp3 files are in my Media Library with the help of this plugin called:

    Plugin: Add From Server
    Description: Plugin to allow the Media Manager to add files from the webservers filesystem. Note: All files are copied to the uploads directory.

    Note: That is the only way to get my files into the Media Library
    Basic Question Overall

    I want to know how I can play my video files and mp3 files and have them actually work like they should.

    Ex. I had a wordpress.com site. I had videopress. You just click insert media and the mp3 file or video file would play in your post or page with ease. Please tell me what to do.

    Thank you for reading this

    Doesn't work. Says the follwoing:

    "We are unable to connect to the content you've requested. We apologize for the inconvenience."

    When I say embed I wanna be able to insert my media straight into my posts and have them play with a video plugin that i have installed on my wordpress. And if you can, could you please suggest a video player plugin that could play avi files other than videopress. And a mp3 player also. I've been trying all day for hours to solve this issue. I hope you can assist me.

    Thank you

    Videopress won't work without a wordpress.com site

    Plugins don't work

    My video file is mp4 and no matter what files do not play or even embed.

    There was another person on this forum who had the same basic issue. They used this plugin and it worked for them:

    That plugin does not work either

    My steps:

    1. I go to page or post
    2. I click "Insert Shortcode"
    3. I go to "Audio & Video"
    4. I clicked audio
    5. I inserted the URL of the file provided by my Media Library
    6. Clicked "Ok"

    Did not work. It did give me a code but it didn't work and said this

    "Error Loading: (file name)"

    I'm a little upset that i cannot play audio or video.
