hi,

i have ftped a video file onto my server, but now i'm not sure how to embed the video into the top of the post. i want to simply center it and fix the width and height... is there an easy way to do that? i've tried this html...

<center>video url</center> but only the actual url showed up in the post... what's the best way to fix this so the actual video shows/plays and at the right width/height to fit inside my blog post?

thanks for any suggestions!

To center it correctly, in the HTML tab, wrap the video html like this:

<div style="text-align:center">video html goes here</div>

You need more than just the URL there -- hopefully someone else can answer that part of the question for you.

it was suggested i install the "add from server" plugin which i just did and so now i can include a link to the video that opens full screen in another browser window, but i want it to show up and play inside a small window inside the post like a typical (you tube etc. ) video... any ideas on how to make that happen? thanks

and now... i've tried uploading the video via you tube and embedded the you tube embed code, but nothing appears in the post - totally blank where the video should be... and when i followed these "insert url" instructions from http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/youtube/ i just get a link inside the post that opens the video in a new browser window on the actual you tube site! i want it to open inside the top of my post! thanks for any help!
