Video in my blog post

  • In Word press 1.5 I could play video files using the code below in the browser/a post. But now I’m only getting a MediaPlayer-window, but no video is playing. I have made sure that all links etc. are OK, and the html-code is copied directly from WP 1.5 where it works perfectly.

    When I copy this to the HTML-editor window, it is gone after I click “update” and “save”, and the following code is left:
    <!– VIDEO –>
    <div class=”text_align_center”><object id=”NSPlay” codebase=”http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701″ type=”application/x-oleobject” height=”275″ standby=”Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components…” width=”330″ classid=”CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95″ /></div>

    Any tips?

  • Looks a wee bit bloated to me. Have a look at:


    Please try to make a Real version available for users like me as well. Not everyone uses Windows, so it will gain you visitors.

    I vote for Quicktime.

    Thanks, but the problem is still the same. The MediaPlayer-window opens in the post, but the video is not starting.. And when I go back to edit the post, the html-code that I copied from “streamalot” is changed to this:

    <!– BEGIN GENERIC ALL BROWSER FRIENDLY HTML FOR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER –><object id=”MediaPlayer1″ codebase=”http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701″ type=”application/x-oleobject” height=”200″ standby=”Loading Microsoft® Windows® Media Player components…” width=”180″ align=”middle” classid=”CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95″ />

    Why is this working perfectly in 1.5, but not in 2.0? More help please!

    BTW – how do I publish a quicktime-player-window in my posts?

    There are a fair few tutorials flying around the net if you search through Google but here’s mine: How to embed a QuickTime Movie.
