Embedding video

Recommended Posts

patpathworksinccom

Are we constrained to embedding only vidoes from YuoTube or can we use embed code from and video hosting site? I just tried embed code from a video hosting site that I use (not YouTube) and the code was rejected for some reason. I am using StationPro 2 and was trying to embed into Home (its using a Feature Page Template) Thanks in advance for any and all help. Newbie is struggling.

My HOME page is set as Main Page (no parent) + Template = Feature Page - Standard. When I preview the site I see an area with the numbers 1,2 & 3 in the main box @ top and number 2 takes me to an embedded YouTube example... so I tried to embed the following code: <object id="objVeeplePlayer" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0" width="640" height="396" align="middle"><param name="width" value="640"/><param name="height" value="396"/><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"/><param name="movie" value="http://www.veeple.com/swf/VeeplePlayer.swf?siteId=FstkK799%252FZI%253D&videoId=53075625-4129-4df7-b1a5-7906d5611427&userId=&baseUrl=http://www.veeple.com/&showSpots=1&showViewBar=1&showTabBar=1&mute=0&spotScaleMode=maintainAspectRatio&autoPlay=1&allowAddComments=1&allowShare=1&allowEmbedding=1&allowFullscreen=1&allowRating=1&stopPlayingOnInteractiveClick=1&displayRelatedVideos=1&showWorm=0&showLogo=0&logoIcon=0&whiteLabel=0&showTabClickableObjects=1&showTabDetails=1&showTabComments=1&playerMode=player&playerWidth=640&playerHeight=396&isFlex=0&recordEvents=1&deploymentUrl=http://www.pathworksinc.com'>http://www.veeple.com/swf/VeeplePlayer.swf?siteId=FstkK799%252FZI%253D&videoId=53075625-4129-4df7-b1a5-7906d5611427&userId=&baseUrl=http://www.veeple.com/&showSpots=1&showViewBar=1&showTabBar=1&mute=0&spotScaleMode=maintainAspectRatio&autoPlay=1&allowAddComments=1&allowShare=1&allowEmbedding=1&allowFullscreen=1&allowRating=1&stopPlayingOnInteractiveClick=1&displayRelatedVideos=1&showWorm=0&showLogo=0&logoIcon=0&whiteLabel=0&showTabClickableObjects=1&showTabDetails=1&showTabComments=1&playerMode=player&playerWidth=640&playerHeight=396&isFlex=0&recordEvents=1&deploymentUrl=http://www.pathworksinc.com"/><param name="quality" value="high"/><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff"/><param name="menu" value="false"/><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/><embed id="embVeeplePlayer" src="http://www.veeple.com/swf/VeeplePlayer.swf?siteId=FstkK799%252FZI%253D&videoId=53075625-4129-4df7-b1a5-7906d5611427&userId=&baseUrl=http://www.veeple.com/&showSpots=1&showViewBar=1&showTabBar=1&mute=0&spotScaleMode=maintainAspectRatio&autoPlay=1&allowAddComments=1&allowShare=1&allowEmbedding=1&allowFullscreen=1&allowRating=1&stopPlayingOnInteractiveClick=1&displayRelatedVideos=1&showWorm=0&showLogo=0&logoIcon=0&whiteLabel=0&showTabClickableObjects=1&showTabDetails=1&showTabComments=1&playerMode=player&playerWidth=640&playerHeight=396&isFlex=0&recordEvents=1&deploymentUrl=http://www.pathworksinc.com'>http://www.veeple.com/swf/VeeplePlayer.swf?siteId=FstkK799%252FZI%253D&videoId=53075625-4129-4df7-b1a5-7906d5611427&userId=&baseUrl=http://www.veeple.com/&showSpots=1&showViewBar=1&showTabBar=1&mute=0&spotScaleMode=maintainAspectRatio&autoPlay=1&allowAddComments=1&allowShare=1&allowEmbedding=1&allowFullscreen=1&allowRating=1&stopPlayingOnInteractiveClick=1&displayRelatedVideos=1&showWorm=0&showLogo=0&logoIcon=0&whiteLabel=0&showTabClickableObjects=1&showTabDetails=1&showTabComments=1&playerMode=player&playerWidth=640&playerHeight=396&isFlex=0&recordEvents=1&deploymentUrl=http://www.pathworksinc.com" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="640" height="396" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="always" menu="false" allowFullScreen="true" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"><noembed><h1>Spider AA 60309</h1><p>selling management, sales management, sales process</p>Veeple Interactive Video</noembed></embed></object This is for a short video that I have hosted @ Veeple video hosting. I didn't catch this yesterday but when I scroll down to the bottom of the "Edit Page" section it tells me in the very last box on the page to Highlight Media (Highlight Page Template) Highlight Media HTML or Embed Code... this is where I tried to paste the embed code. I see that this is for the wrong template but why is it showing me options for the Highlight Page when the template I am using is the "Feature Page-Standard Template? I don't see anywhere where I can put embed code for Feature page even though it clearly has a YouTube video embedd in window # 2. In the description of StationPro it says that it is very well documented but I'll be darned if I can find a detailed description on how to use the features properly and an expalnation of same in any detail... seems to me to be relying on great intuition from the user. I am sure this is pilot error on my part; however, if you could point me to some good docs that help a newbie work thru the installation and configuration issues it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have to say that video code is definitely overkill and chalk full of advertisement from the service. I assume that you're not using YouTube because of the poor quality? I recommend checking out: http://vimeo.com/ Have you tried simply pasting your code right over the YouTube code? Thanks, Bryan
