I've tried to embed a short mp4 video using the video tag, but that doesn't work. Can someone walk me through a way to get my mp4 video in my RSD page wirhout using You Tube or Vimeo Thanks for any help. Tom Wells
Sorry if this sounds obvious but did you put the video into your resources? If so how did you set the link (embed) up to it
the code for putting the link looks like this
<video loop="" muted="" autoplay=""
style=" position: absolute; top: 50%; left: 50%; width: auto; height: 400px; min-width: 100%;
min-height: 400px; -webkit-transform: translate(-50%, -50%); -ms-transform: translate(-50%, -50%); transform: translate(-50%, -50%);">
<source src="video/city-video.mp4" type="video/mp4">
<source src="video/city-video.ogv" type="video ogv">
<source src="video/city-video.webm" type="videowebm">
you can set the height width etc to whatever you require it to be
the source is wherever you put the video
in this case I put it in a folder "video" in my resources
attaching 2 pics. I must tell you, I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so I appreciate any help.
so your embed code is not pointing to the right bit
<source src="pictures/videos/woody2..mp4" type="video/mp4">
What I usually do is take their html and put it in notepad so I can see it and replace their url with mine as to where the video is hosted.
But like I said...there is the one component I cannot seem to locate the proper code and it wants to mandate vimeo or youtube. So if anyone has that answer, please share.
Wayan, I copied your embed code, and still had no luck. I thank you for your help, and have decided to go with Vimeo or You Tube. Thanks again, Tom Wells
how about sending the project file to dropbox so I can have a look & see if it can be fixed before you commit to Vimeo or Youtube.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
