Posting video to website


(Jerry Wei) #1

Hello, I have a video that I would like to post to my website using RapidWeaver. I can’t find any way to do this within the program itself. Can someone provide instructions?

Publishing the video to a website like YouTube, Vimeo or DailyMotion and then embedding it into your website (using their code snippets) would be the cheapest and easiest method. You wouldn’t have to worry about about browser compatibility or bandwidth. Some RapidWeaver themes will scale your embedded video to fit different screen sizes too.

However if you want more independence over the publication of your video (like restricting its viewing to only on your website or presenting it in a more HD quality) then you’ll need to consider an HTML5 video stack, to install into the YourHead Stacks plugin. The StackCentral website has the most comprehensive list of actively developed video stacks available for RapidWeaver. Some embed your video directly into a page and others open it within a lightbox popup.
