Besides using outside video embeds, I&#39;m looking forward to keeping as much as possible on my own servers ... or using some kind of free cloud storage for video perhaps, of course questioning <a href="http://mydesultoryblog.com/2012/04/cnet-who-owns-your-files-on-google-drive/">Google Drive</a> at the moment.</p> <p>I&#39;m looking for something similar and simple that would emulate the lightweight player or bar type that I&#39;m currently -- flash based -- for embedding mp3 audio. Something that doesn&#39;t take up much space and would play/stream in all browsers and devices. Below is a screen image of a current use of an audio clip.</p> <p> <a class='bb_attachments_link' href='http://wpmarketing.org/forum/?bb_attachments=513&bbat=38'><img src='http://wpmarketing.org/forum/?bb_attachments=513&bbat=38&inline' /></a> </p> hanadaddy on "Best way to post mp4 video on Wordpress" http://wpmarketing.org/forum/topic/best-way-to-post-mp4-video-on-wordpress#post-510 Tue, 24 Apr 2012 22:50:40 +0000 hanadaddy 510@http://wpmarketing.org/forum/ <p>Great news! Thanks a lot for your donation too. </p> <p>Sorry, no I don't have mp3 plugin. Don't know much about it yet. Once I have more information about it, I could make a plugin . </p> <p>Thanks and take care. </p> richc on "Best way to post mp4 video on Wordpress" http://wpmarketing.org/forum/topic/best-way-to-post-mp4-video-on-wordpress#post-509 Tue, 24 Apr 2012 16:23:30 +0000 richc 509@http://wpmarketing.org/forum/ <p>Genius! Yes ... that&#39;s the plug-in that was causing the problem. Thanks for the above chart and all the advice. I appreciate your Hana plug-in and hope you keep it working. Any chance you have a universal .mp3 plug-in that works in place of the flash normally used?</p> <p> <a class='bb_attachments_link' href='http://wpmarketing.org/forum/?bb_attachments=509&bbat=37'><img src='http://wpmarketing.org/forum/?bb_attachments=509&bbat=37&inline' /></a> </p> hanadaddy on "Best way to post mp4 video on Wordpress" http://wpmarketing.org/forum/topic/best-way-to-post-mp4-video-on-wordpress#post-508 Tue, 24 Apr 2012 11:50:17 +0000 hanadaddy 508@http://wpmarketing.org/forum/ <p>That was a really nice informative post. Thank you.</p> <p>MediaElement.js is HTML5 video player and supports Flash and Siliverlight fallback. See below browser compatibility chart from their website. If H.264 encoding is used , all browsers and Apple devices should be supported. </p> <p>According to your post, IE 9 and Firefox 11 do not support MediaElement properly, but when I tested under the testing WP blog in my PC, they both work OK. I noticed that you are using javascript minify feature of caching plugin. Can you disable the javascript minify and test again? I have a hunch that it has something to do with this issue.</p> <p> <a class='bb_attachments_link' href='http://wpmarketing.org/forum/?bb_attachments=508&bbat=36'><img src='http://wpmarketing.org/forum/?bb_attachments=508&bbat=36&inline' /></a> </p> richc on "Best way to post mp4 video on Wordpress" http://wpmarketing.org/forum/topic/best-way-to-post-mp4-video-on-wordpress#post-507 Mon, 23 Apr 2012 17:29:27 +0000 richc 507@http://wpmarketing.org/forum/ <p>Thanks for the update. Yes my video is H.264 with the .mp4 wrapper. Chrome plays both FLV Player Maxi and the Mediaelement.js embed. Firefox and IE only the FLV Player Maxi embed ... and of course Apple devices like the iPad only working with the Mediaelement.js embed. </p> <p>I&#39;ve tried a couple things with Wordpress but another issue is the caching which you mentioned. I&#39;ve post a couple of screen shots to <a href="http://mydesultoryblog.com/2012/04/video-for-wordpress-hana-flv-player/">my blog</a> as well as the two different embeds with short test clips.<br /> <a href="http://mydesultoryblog.com/2012/04/video-for-wordpress-hana-flv-player/" rel="nofollow">http://mydesultoryblog.com/2012/04/video-for-wordpress-hana-flv-player/</a></p> <p>I used a little Kodak Playsport Zx5 pocket camcorder on the lowest setting WVGA setting&quot;targeted&quot; for the iPad ... and although I think the files could be better optimized for streaming, they seem acceptable for short videos. I&#39;d like to get away from utilizing YouTube for a few things.</p> <p> <a class='bb_attachments_link' href='http://wpmarketing.org/forum/?bb_attachments=507&bbat=35'><img src='http://wpmarketing.org/forum/?bb_attachments=507&bbat=35&inline' /></a> </p> hanadaddy on "Best way to post mp4 video on Wordpress" http://wpmarketing.org/forum/topic/best-way-to-post-mp4-video-on-wordpress#post-506 Mon, 23 Apr 2012 15:23:50 +0000 hanadaddy 506@http://wpmarketing.org/forum/ <p>Hello, have you tried using Mediaelement.js with H.264 video files? As long as I know, it should work with all the browsers including Apple devices (iPhone, iPad). </p> <p>Let me know the browser that Mediaelement.js + H.264 video combination does not work.</p> <p>Thank you. </p> richc on "Best way to post mp4 video on Wordpress" http://wpmarketing.org/forum/topic/best-way-to-post-mp4-video-on-wordpress#post-505 Mon, 23 Apr 2012 14:06:30 +0000 richc 505@http://wpmarketing.org/forum/ <p>I'm looking for the best way to switch from flv to mp4 and include a player (players) that can be viewed by all devices in a single post. Seems the H.264 mp4s are just fine, but getting browsers and Apple devices to use the correct player a different problem, particularly with Wordpress caching. </p> <p>My first attempt was to use two different players in a single post. With a description= line in the FLV Player the Apple devices like the iPad pretty much ignore the code and don't gunk up a post with a big black box. The same is not true for Firefox and the Mediaelement.js ... or Chrome loading up both players.</p> <p>Any options for Wordpress that works across platforms? </p>
