Embedding movies in your blog.

You might be interested in uploading some work as a video on your blog. Well, the first task is to actually make a movie… we’ll be doing that later in the year.

If you have used Windows Movie Maker to create the movie file, you will need to upload the wmv file to your media library.

Once that’s done, paste this section of code into the post, changing the name of the filename.wmv to the actual url of your file.

<object width=”480″ height=”320″ classid=”clsid:6bf52a52-394a-11d3-b153-00c04f79faa6″ codebase=”http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701″><param name=”url” value=”http://mrvincent.global2.vic.edu.au/files/2013/08/Test-movie-1n9r4vt.wmv” /><param name=”autostart” value=”false” /><param name=”showcontrols” value=”true” /><param name=”pluginspage” value=”http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/” /><param name=”url” value=”http://mrvincent.global2.vic.edu.au/files/2013/08/Test-movie-1n9r4vt.wmv” /><embed width=”480″ height=”320″ type=”application/x-mplayer2″ src=”http://mrvincent.global2.vic.edu.au/files/2013/08/Test-movie-1n9r4vt.wmv” url=”http://mrvincent.global2.vic.edu.au/files/2013/08/Test-movie-1n9r4vt.wmv” autostart=”false” showcontrols=”true” pluginspage=”http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/” /></object>

If you have an mp4 version of the movie, the code will be different:

<video width=”480″ height=”320″ controls=”controls”>
<source src=”http://mrvincent.global2.vic.edu.au/files/2013/08/Test-movie-2iww6eq.mp4″ type=”video/mp4″ />
<object data=”http://mrvincent.global2.vic.edu.au/files/2013/08/Test-movie-2iww6eq.mp4″ width=”480″ height=”320″>
<embed src=”http://mrvincent.global2.vic.edu.au/files/2013/08/Test-movie-2iww6eq.mp4″ width=”480″ height=”320″>

<PARAM NAME=”autoplay” VALUE=”false” >
<PARAM NAME=”preload” VALUE=”false” >

Your browser does not support video
</embed>
</object>
</video>

 

The movie should be automatically embedded in the post in Internet Explorer like these ones:
