  • Add Flash Videos to WordPress Blog

    Posted on July 15th, 2009 Toby 396 comments

    Whatever your reason for wanting to add falsh videos to your WordPress blog or website-maybe you just want to share videos with your friends or want to show some business websites to your potential customers-it’s very easy with WordPress and a couple of other tools.

    Tool One: Of course a WordPress account, go to www.wordpress.com and spend 5 minutes to register.

    Tool Two: A flash video downloader. If you don’t have any existing flash videos at hand, no worries, you may use this flash video downloader to download flash videos from internet. Here I recommend Leawo Youtube Download

    Tool Three: PlayerDIY Web Player. PlayerDIY Web Player is a WYSIWYG(what you see is what you get) program for customizing flash video player for website. It is very easy to use, with it, every single aspect of flash video player can be configured and previewed right away on graphical interfaces with a few mouse-clicks, no any coding needed. And the customized flash video player supports playing flash videos, streaming videos, live videos and SMIL presentations. It is mainly developed for web-designers and video hobbyists to build video sharing sites or add flash videos onto their websites or blogs for playing.

    The step-by-step tutorial below teaches exactly how to upload your favorite videos to WordPress blog, let’s have a look:

    Step 1: First upload the flash videos  that you want to play on your blog or website to a sever (e.g.: upload to blip.tv), and then get the link addresses.

    Step 2: Open PlayerDIY Web player from Tool Three and click “Add URL” to input those flash videos’ link addresses which from Step 1.

    add flash video to moyea web player

    Step 3: Select a video to edit and all the following features will show in the playlist.

    a. Adjust the video order

    b. Capture pictures during video playing

    c. Rename video

    d. Type the address where the video will lead to after playing

    e. Type the address where the video will lead to when clicking

    edit video features in playlist

    Step 4: Click “Template” to preview the webplayer you have created so far. If you don’t like the default player skin, choose another one from the left panel.

    preview the customized flash video player

    Step 5: Click “Option” tab, then “User define area”, choose “none” to remove Embed and URL information on the screen.

    remove the unwanted information from the customized player

    Step 6: On “Publish” interface, choose a publish path, and then publish the customized player.

    publish the customized flash video player

    Step 7: Upload all the published files except the index.html file, to the same folder of a web server (you can easily search a free hosting on google). And then copy and past the embed code on the following interface into your blog.

    copy and paste the embed code onto WordPress

    Note: mwplayer.swf is the actual flash video player, and the swfobject.js is an adobe flash object file, you point to them with links.

    Then the player with the videos will show on your WordPress blog. Enjoy!
