2 question: ftp support – video playback
Two part question
I used to have a own website and hosted wordpress myself.
I constantly used ftp to upload pictures, videos, …
I know how to upload files now, but I have lots of pictures I want to upload and multiple videos and sound files.
Is it possible to use ftp on wordpress.com?
How do I embed the videos I upload?
From the blog post I read it was only mp3/wav support?
I use the .ogg alot. Is it only .ogg vorbis (audio) or also .ogg theora (if there is any embedded video playback).
I don’t really care to use youtube and dailymotion because of very bad quality.
Will wordpress.com ever support stage6.com/veoh.com/megavideo?
ps: really like the new 3gb upload limit. I was beginning to worry about the 50mb being getting full in a few days/weeks.
We do not have ftp access on wordpress.com although there are rumors that multiple file upload will be an option at some point in the future. The future of course is a really big place and none of us volunteers know when it will be).
At this time, videos are best hosted on a third-party site such as viddler, dailymotion vimeo, Google or youtube and then linked to it on your blog. there is also the Vodpod widget which a lot of people use and like quite well:
mp3/wav files can only be uploaded if you purchase the space upgrade: http://faq.wordpress.com/2007/10/18/about-the-space-upgrade/
File types you can upload with and without the space upgrade are shown here: http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/07/what-filetypes-can-i-upload/
veoh support as far as anything I can find isn’t likely but who knows.
