I googled "embedding video wordpress" and I got several hits - some plugins and stuff but I would like to embed video using the old fashion code like it's mentioned here for example:
so it would look like this:
<embed SRC=http://andrzejl.cyryl.net/PCLinuxOS/VIDEOS/Old/PCLinuxOS%202009%20MiniMe%20KDE%203%20Promotional%20Video%20VirtualBox%20Background%20Music%20PeerGynt%20Lobogris%20-%20To%20Cross%20the%20Line.avi WIDTH=400 HEIGHT=300 AUTOPLAY=false CONTROLLER=true LOOP=false ></embed>
Now if I use this code mentioned above and press publish - the code vanishes and the post is blank. What is happening?
I do not want to use Youtube or Vimeo to upload the video. I have video uploaded to my own hosting - it works fine - all I need is to embed the video in the post using some html / bbc code so it plays in a small player instead of being downloaded.
Thanks in advance for any help provided.
