I want to put a video on my site, but not using youtube. I want it to only be available on my site. Like using html. Is there a way to do that?

Hi mE,

We don't currently have a tool that allows you to upload your video and play it on your SynthaSite. But I can suggest an alternative: upload your video onto another website like Youtube or Google Video and then add one of those widgets to your page on SynthaSite and browse for your uploaded video.

To add a video to your page, follow these few simple steps:

1) Open the "video" folder on the right hand side of the screen and drag and drop a Google Video, Metacafe or YouTube icon onto your page.
2) In the properties sidebar on the right, click on the "browse" link.
3) Browse Google Video, Metacafe or YouTube for the video you want to embed in your site.
4) Copy the URL for the video from your browser window.
5) Paste the URL over the default URL in the properties sidebar in SynthaSite. Hit "Enter" and then click "Apply".

Your video will then be embedded in your web page.

Hi mE
If you don't want to use YouTube, you can use any video hosting service. Copy the embed code for the video and paste it into the HTML editor in SynthaSite and your video will play. Here is a good service you could try:

You could also use the file widget in SynthaSite, but your video would need to be smaller than 15 MB at this stage, which would be a limitation of hosting video files on SynthaSite.
