Getting videos to load on your site can be done in a couple of different ways. You can either host the video on your own server or you can use an embed code form a video hosting site like Youtube or Vimeo. We suggests the latter as it is easier to manage and insures that every visitor to your site will be able to see your video.
Instructions for adding video to your website.
Embed From Video Sharing Site – Suggested Method
Embedding a video from Youtube/Vimeo is simple. First either navigate to the video or create an account on one of the two sites and upload your own video. Once the video is active on the site you can simply copy the url of the video and paste it directly into the text editor. You wordpress site will create the embed code for you.
If you go the self hosted route you will want to navigate to your dashboard and click on “Media” from the last hand side of the screen. Next you will want to click on “Add New” and upload the video from your computer. In order for all of your users to see the video across all devices you will need to upload a MP4 video as well as a video in .OGG format. In order to make these different formats you will need video software that can export to different file types. This is why we suggest going the Youtube/Vimeo route.
