Embedding videos on my site

Recommended Posts

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!!

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?

Features can handle videos - please see the provided documentation here http://support.pagelines.me/docs/sections/features/

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      Hi there,
      I'm a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Dougal

      Hi,
      I am using the Canvas Area section at the top of my site. I have a video playing in the background, which works really well on desktop. But on mobile video doesn't play without user interaction, so I have a static image in place as an alternate image. However when viewed on a mobile device there is now a play button over the static image that does nothing. This didn't use to happen so I imaging it is due to an upgrade. But this is really bad UX. Is there a way to remove it?
      Here is the site:

      Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      So I used to use the Video Background extension that was offered here on pagelines, but until recently it continued to function.  Yesterday however it ceased to work and since it has been removed and no longer supported I've been forced to find a new way to show the youtube video that used to be on my background.
      I know that there is the option to upload videos for background, needing both an mp4 and ogv version.  However, since this is a youtube video I don't have any source files to upload.
      I have since turned to using the mb.YTPlayer wordpress plugin.  It seems to be working just fine on its part, as you can see a sliver of it playing just below my footer.  My issue though it that it doesn't show up behind my main body content.  Now it was my understanding that the backgrounds were defaulted to transparent in DMS2 and that this shouldn't be happening.  I've tried several CSS transparency codes to no avail, so my question is how am I able to get the video that is showing up right beneath the footer in other areas?  Either on a section by section basis or for the entire body?

      Hello,
      I'm having trouble getting my Powerloop layout the way that I want...
      I'd like to have the same layout as the question below but instead of an image I'm using video.
      I have my media shortcode above everything but the title is still above it in my page and when I inspect it.
      My settings:
      [powerloop_media]  
      [powerloop_title class="plHtxt" align="center"] 
      [powerloop_content class="plHContent" align="left"]
      [powerloop_author class="plHauthor" align="left"] | [powerloop_date format="F j, Y"]
      Another problem I am having is that I cant create space between the video and the content..If i add padding or an margin to my content class it adds that spacing to the video as well.
      Any ideas on how I can fix this?
