How To Add A Movie Clip

First let me say that I searched the past threads, searching for “adding a movie” and "movie" and the best answer involved CoffeeCups' firestarter (I miss you), one of, in my opinion, the most powerful software programs CoffeeCup has ever made, and it was the one software program that got me hooked into CoffeeCup.

Okay, yes adding YouTube videos is easy, but how about adding video clips that you have purchased from iStock or other similar companies? Why can't we, or don't we rather, have something that can do this within the HTML Editor? Or at least a stand alone product like the old Movie program that CoffeeCup use to have?

Does anyone know how to do this without uploading it to YouTube, Viemo, etc?

CoffeeCup staff, I do appreciate the hard work you are doing and they reasonable prices for your software as well.

Try this one:
<video width="320" height="240" controls>
<source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
<source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">
Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>

The .ogg format is necessary for Opera and older versions of Firefox.

One thing to keep in mind that only browsers that have a codec for MP4 will be able to view that video. On OS X that is not a problem because QuickTime is part of the operating system however on Windows, they need to install iTunes or Quicktime to view that.

Another alternative is JWPlayer:

Still works for me with the code I pasted above back in 2014. Tested now with Ffx and Edge. It may not work in IE11.
