Adding Video

Post by Hobbyist » Tue Jul 03, 2018 11:23 am

I am using Webbuilder 12. Which tool do you use to add video to the website? I was able to link a file from my desktop pc. What I would like to do is put the whole video into the website.

So the video would be like the pictures. Fully inserted as part of the website.

Probably the easiest way is YouTube, by using this method your are guaranteed that it will or should play in all browsers. You can also use the HTML 5 Video Object, or there are extensions such as the jPlayer or the HTML5 video with playlist if required. But mostly if using a video on your PC it must be websafe such as MP4. MPEG-4 is the HTML5 most commonly used.
How do I add video to my website?

So upload the video to youtube and then link the video to your website?

Using HTML5 will upload the whole video file into your website?

Say I wanted to have a clock ticking for 10 seconds set on repeat for the webpage. I would upload the short video using HTML5 format?

No you yourself will need to upload the video, the HTML5 Video player only renders it.

Yes, but since the video is so short why not simply convert to say a gif image and use this on the page required.

So search google for converting video to GIF. EZGIF looks well easy. The GIF is added as an image. Says video up to 120mb.
