How to embed an mp4 video in a post

6 replies
Can anyone explain how to embed a video in a forum post? For example an mp4 flash video hosted on my own site but playing in my forum post?

Thanks!

    1. Upload the video to youtube or vimeo.
    2. Take the embed code provided to include the video in your post. Copy it.
    3. Paste it in the forum post.

    The forum admins should have allowed the videos to be embedded in the first place. Without that all you see is the embed code again, but not the video.

    Thanks - so that is one way, but I'm looking for a way to do this without uploading my video to Youtube first. So how can I embed a flash video that is hosted on my own site?

      JP ... JP Here :-)

      I use an amazon s3 account and an ezs3 account to administer the videos and players. Works like a champ most of the time (I'm actually here tonight posting a question about streaming videos -- kinda funny.)

      Hope that helps.

        Hey JP! Thanks - but I guess my question is on the embed code to actually get it to play in a forum post. I tried using the same emebed code as I use on a webpage and no joy!

    The mods won't let me post links so try and decipher this:

    Go to haych tee tee pee://long***tail****video DOT com (remove the ***)

    Download JW player (free flv player that also plays mp4)

    They have a wizard on the site which will generate the embed code for you, just upload the player, your mp4 and a page containing the embed code.

      Thanks nevadasoft,
      I was looking for an alternative to Youtube and stumbled upon this post of yours.
