I'm using the Elegant Theme called "Gleam."
Here are my goals:
1) embed a locally-hosted MP4 video
2) be able to manually modify its size from inside the editor
3) have it be centered horizontally
4) have it automatically play when the page is loaded
Here's what I'm doing:
<p style="text-align: center;"><object width="384" height="288"> <embed src="http://mySite/myMP4.mp4" width="384" height="288" autoplay="true" controller="true" type="video/mp4" scale="tofit" pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"> </embed></object></p>
It satisfies all my requirements except number 2. That's because, for some reason, it disables the HTML tab after I leave the edit page. For example, after I click "update", and then go to "view page" from the top menu bar, when I go back to "edit page" the HTML tab will be inactive.
I can see the placeholder of the movie on the View tab, but clicking on the HTML tab does nothing. Literally nothing, as if it's just another piece of text on the page. If I manually delete the movie placeholder from the View tab, the HTML tab suddenly becomes active again (now that it only shows a blank window).
Anybody able to help?
