Hi

 

I am struggling to see how I can embed a video into my website.  I had intended to have a number of short videos on various pages (had thought I could use a Highlight box for this) at the top of the page.  These are not posts, as such, but the main pages of the site.

 

However, I have not been able to insert any videos.  I have tried downloading and using the Plug-in WP Video posts, but this hasn't worked either.  

 

I am not trying to put a 'click to play' sort of video, but one that runs automatically when a person goes onto the page.  I have seen that the suggestions previously made have been that the videos are uploaded to servers like YouTube, but this is a company site and that is not appropriate, so I am trying to embed files (which I have in .mov and .mp4 formats) from my computer.  

 

Help!!

Have you already uploaded these files to media library?

Hi Catrina

Yes I had already uploaded them.  I have now found a way to upload these manually into post/page using HTML code (took me HOURS to work my way around that!).

But surely features, highlight box or hero can handle videos?
