Support » Fixing WordPress » .MOV videos (from iPhone and Mac) do not play

  • Hello:

    This is my first wordpress site, so bear with me.

    I am gay and in Moscow, so started a “whats it like being gay in Moscow” blog. I have only posted about five or six times, but the issues with video are frustrating.

    I have been going to gay dance clubs and shooting video with my iPhone. I have then transferred them to my Mac. I go to the dashboard for my site, hit media, upload the videos.

    When I then go to post and hit ‘media,’ and add the videos, it creates links to the file names. I would prefer the videos to be embedded in the post, but whatever, that’s fine.

    The problem is when I then publish the posts and click on the links, the Quicktime logo will appear momentarily, and then nothing. It’s just a blank screen. Here’s an example:

    What am I doing wrong?

    (One video did correctly post, and you can see it at Moscow Boy George. I thought maybe it was an issue with the video’s length, but I have gigs available on my server and that’s a seven second video compared to the twenty second durations for the other videos. Length shouldn’t be it.)
