Embed self-hosted videos

This discussion is related to the Mediator addon.

I have a lot of videos uploaded on my host and I want them to appear inside posts - is this possible using Mediator?

V: 2.0.18.8

  • @vrijvlinder vids are various formats, like mp4/wmv/avi etc

    you would embed them using the old fashion embed codes .

    Example:

    <OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" 
    CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="136" >
    <PARAM NAME="src" VALUE="videofilename.mp4" >
    <PARAM NAME="autoplay" VALUE="true" >
    <EMBED SRC="videofilename.mp4" TYPE="image/x-macpaint" 
    PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="136" AUTOPLAY="true"></EMBED>
    </OBJECT>
    
    
    <OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" 
    CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="136" >
    <PARAM NAME="src" VALUE="videofilename_mp4.mov" >
    <PARAM NAME="autoplay" VALUE="true" >
    <EMBED SRC="videofilename_mp4.mov" TYPE="image/x-macpaint" 
    PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="136" AUTOPLAY="true"></EMBED>
    </OBJECT>
    
    
    <object id="MediaPlayer" width="192" height="190" type="video/x-ms-asf">
    <param name="FileName"value="videofilename.wmv">
    <param name="autostart" value="false">
    <param name="ShowControls" value="true">
    <param name="ShowStatusBar" value="false">
    <param name="ShowDisplay" value="false">
    <embed type="application/x-mplayer2" src="videofilename.wmv" 
    width="192" height="190" ShowControls="1" ShowStatusBar="0" ShowDisplay="0" autostart="0" />
    </object>
    
    <OBJECT ID="MediaPlayer" WIDTH="192" HEIGHT="190" CLASSID="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
    STANDBY="Loading Windows Media Player components..." TYPE="application/x-oleobject">

    <EMBED TYPE="application/x-mplayer2" SRC="videofilename.wmv" NAME="MediaPlayer"
    WIDTH="192" HEIGHT="190" ShowControls="1" ShowStatusBar="0" ShowDisplay="0" autostart="0"> </EMBED>
    </OBJECT>
    
    <object width="550" height="400">
       <param name="movie" value="somefilename.swf">
       <embed src="somefilename.swf" width="550" height="400">
       </embed>
    </object>
    
    <object  data="="/files/videos/video.avi" type="video/avi"  />
    <embed  src="/files/videos/video.avi" />

  • @vrijvlinder thanks a lot, got it!

  • I wonder if you can think of a way to auto load a url to an mp4 or flv to a server side installed copy of flowplayer?

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    You can use the plugin playMp3 and it will play a flash version of the mp3
