Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] Uploading & adding video to posts

Flynn, or anyone else,
I'm trying to find out how to include some video's I shot in a post. If I hit the 'add a video' button in the text editor, I can upload my video, and the video name is included in the post, but the video itself doesn't show up. If the reader clicks on the video name, it'll download. I'd just like it to play in the post.
Any ideas?

I've incorporated the youtuber plug-in to my site, as I already have a YouTube account. The interface seems to work quite well. I'm quite the idiot when it comes to coding of any sort, but this was rather easy to use and didn't interfere with any design elements I thought were important to me.

Hi KeylimeSteve,
That's not really what I mean. You see, I want to upload an video I shot directly from my PC into a post. Uploading in the editor is possible, just like uploading a .jpg, but the video won't show in the post. It will show a linkable title to the video, which'll download if you click on it, but I want a picture of the video and the ability to let it play on the page.

I like the podcasting plugin from blubrry for uploading videos... I don't even use the RSS feed part of it.

it has a player with it, so your audience can watch the video right from you page.

What is the format of the uploaded video? Remember the web browser has to have the ability to play that format of video.

When I add a video (type MOV) I add a jpg of a frame of the video and set the link so if you click the picture, a new window opens and the video plays.

Here is the code that was in the post which you can see at http://zenofmud.org/archives/250

<!--Mime Type of File is image/jpeg --><div class="postie-image-div"><a href="http://mydomain.org/wordpress/wp-photos/20080415-070945-1.jpg" onclick="window.open('http://mydomain.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads//2008/video/GregEllenweb.mov','full_size_image','toolbar=0,scr ollbars=0,location=0,status=0,menubar=0,resizable= 1,height=489,width=659');return false;"><img src="http://mydomain.org/wordpress/wp-photos/thumb.20080415-070945-1.jpg" alt="willyou.jpg" title="willyou.jpg" style="border: none;" class="postie-image" /></a></div> But if you click on the picture, you can see the video.
