That may be the problem. It could be that the supported formats embed with Flash, where JW does not. Where is the JW site? L

I see, thanks. It may be the case that this player isn't used by enough people to be considered adding to the list of supported formats?

I can't see how to embed that one here, but as I said previously notice how Fox present the subject, using words like "high-tech treasure hunt" to generate interest in their audience.

Ok now the player does not need any codes installed on this site as the server it lives on includes all that is needed and i it is possable to choose other/none of teh above as some people might wish to just add a simple mp4 embed(quicktime)<br /><br />the player will play on every site/blog without it needing to be in the suport list by just adding the code eg <br /><br />{code} // Way to simply embed<br /><embed src='http://jamesm.com.au/player/player.swf' width='555' height='300' bgcolor='undefined' allowscriptaccess='always' allowfullscreen='true' flashvars='file=http://jamesm.com.au/player/play.xml' /><br />{/code}<br /><br />{code} // The way I would embed the code not for blogs or sites like instructables<br /><script type='text/javascript' src='swfobject.js'></script><br /><br /><div id='mediaspace'>This text will be replaced</div><br /><br /><script type='text/javascript'><br />var so = new SWFObject('http://jamesm.com.au/player/player.swf','mpl','555','300','9');<br />so.addParam('allowfullscreen','true');<br />so.addParam('allowscriptaccess','always');<br />so.addParam('wmode','opaque');<br />so.addVariable('file','http://jamesm.com.au/player/play.xml');<br />so.write('mediaspace');<br /></script><br />{/code}<br /><br />

Hey, yeah I got the file, but (I may get this slightly wrong, my web coding is extremely poor) I understand that it works differently than other online video websites. <br />Your jw player has the flash player which links to a playlist / database the reason that will not work embedding it into Instructables is because the video is not standalone with the player. <br /><br />I'm not sure if you saw the link in my previous comment: <br />https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-embed-a-video-into-Instructables/?ALLSTEPS<br />

...and I'll just let you know what I was doing: from your video player URL <br />(http://jamesm.com.au/player/) > View Source, now in the source you have two links :<pre id="line1"> SWFObject('http://jamesm.com.au/player/player.swf',...); ...('file','http://jamesm.com.au/player/play.xml');If I got to the .xml page there's the code: "<media:content url="http://jamesm.com.au/player/test.mp4"/>"which is linking to the actual video file, Then again as what I have been describing is like using the Instrctablessandbox for embedding videos, were yo able to embed the raw html you shouldn't have a problemActually I think I should go to bed, I'm probably talking in circles and it's only confusing.</pre>

oops, sorry<br />embedding the video would go something like: (with the source file linked. italics)<br /><br />
Video
invalid movie: http://jamesm.com.au/player/player.swf<em>?&file=http://jamesm.com.au/player/test.mp4</em>
<br /><br />Read this Instructables for more information about embedding videos: <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-embed-a-video-into-Instructables/?ALLSTEPS">www.instructables.com/id/How-to-embed-a-video-into-Instructables/</a><br /><br />I have tried using the html code but due to the new editor it's not working. <br /><br />
