I was wondering on how to add videos to a wordpress page.
The thing is, this wordpress page i’m referring to is hosted internally as an internal portal.
We don’t want the internal process videos to be hosted outside using a 3rd party service like vimeo or videopress?
Any advise or ideas is greatly appreciated.
I was also wondering where does Chris host his video’s for CSS-Tricks?
Can we just host it and store the videos on our server in a folder?
And then use a plugin to embed the videos on our posts..June 9, 2010 at 12:27 am #77424
Hi. Let’s say your internal web server is http://internalserver
You can just create a folder called videos in the web root, and drop your videos in there.
If they are videos that Windows can play, you can just link to them and they will play in Windows’s player. Eg: http://internalserver/videos/coolvideo.wmv will play right in your web browser. So will MOV’s if you have quicktime installed.
If you want a player like Chris has, you will need to convert your video to .FLV (Flash Video) and then drop it in a folder like i explained above. Then you can install a flash video player wordpress plugin – I use "Flash Video Player" which looks very similar to Chris’s player.
I hope that helps
