so im trying to upload a .avi video, its hosted on S3 Amazon as its about 600MB. Im trying to upload it to my wordpress website but been stuck for the past 2 days!!! I've tried most of the good embedded video plugins but they don't seem to work Now my other option is to load it as FLV which i can do successfully but the quality is rubbish, though watchable. I'm not prepared to compromise rubbish for my viewers hence im trying to find a .AVI player plugin for wordpress, last night a fellow warrior gave me this script....
<object id="MediaPlayer1" CLASSID="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701"
standby="Loading Microsoft Windows® Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject" width="640" height="480">
<param name="fileName" value="http://www.your video address//your video.avi">
<param name="animationatStart" value="true">
<param name="transparentatStart" value="true">
<param name="autoStart" value="true">
<param name="showControls" value="true">
<param name="Volume" value="-450">
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" src="http://www.your video address/your video.avi" name="MediaPlayer1" width=640 height=480 autostart=1 showcontrols=1 volume=-450>
Now, the video players appears but for some reason my video don't load, and yes i've waited for over 10mins and nothing.....
so PLEASE my fellow warriors, cant anyone help?i am so stuck and am seriously considering just loading up the FLV version which i really dont want to but at the moment i don't have a choice......
