How do I post a video in an entry?
To post a video in an entry, you must make sure that the video is hosted somewhere on the internet. A video on your computer won't display to people other than you. You will need to take the video from your computer and upload it to a video hosting service. (Several popular free video hosting services are YouTube and Vimeo.)

To post the video, locate the "Share" button on the page of the video you would like to post. Then, select the "embed" option. Copy the code that the site provides. Each site's embedding code is a little different, so you may need to look at the instructions provided by your video hosting service.

If you are using the HTML editor, you will simply paste the code into your entry.

If you are using the Rich Text Editor, you will select the image that looks like a CD, and paste the code there.

For security reasons, we have to enable embedding from each video host individually. We've already enabled many popular video hosting sites, but if you try to post video from a new site and it doesn't work, open a support request and include the embedding code you're trying to use.
