Uploading Video Files

First, upload your video clip in a post via the Insert File tool. Once you have uploaded the video clip, you can then embed it for display in your post.

For information on uploading videos to YouTube, see the embed YouTube videos article.

After uploading your file, click on the HTML tab. The code in your post will look similar to this:

<a href="">Download</a>

Edit the code to this:

<embed src="" height="xxx" width="xxx" autostart="0"></embed>

Keep in mind that you will need to customize the height and width options to accommodate your video clip.

The video can be centered in the post using the following tags:

<p style="text-align: center"></p>

After adding the code for the video player to your post, the video may not display from the Compose Post tab or when previewing the post within the application. The code, however, will still be included in the post and display the video player after publishing the post to your blog.
