The HTML Editor does not like the use of the Object code when trying to embed a file such as a wmv or mp4. The HTML editor does not except the closing code for the object code

For Example, this code will not work properly in the HTML editor
<!OBJECT classid='clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B' width="500"
height="515" codebase='http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplug...>
<!param name='src' value="http://www.cgcmarriageministry.org/re...>
<!param name='autoplay' value="false">
<!param name='controller' value="true">
<!param name='loop' value="false">
<!EMBED src="http://www.cgcmarriageministry.org/re..." width="500" height="515" autoplay="false"
controller="true" loop="false" pluginspage='http://www.apple.com/quicktime/downlo...>
<!/EMBED>
<!/OBJECT>

Any help would be appreciated greatly.

Hello Chris

Can you please try taking out the exclamation marks out of your code and see if that helps?

If you could share with me where you got that code, I can also take a closer look at why this is not working.

I put the exclimation points in there so the code would show, otherwise it will show the quicktime box. I know to take them out.

The issue is with the object code. That is what does not work. The <!/object> is not recognized by the HTML Editor widget.

Here is a image of the screen You can see that the last line is red indicating that it is not working properly

The biggest issue I have is that I can use just the embed part and it works fine, but only for IE. It will not work for Firefix or any other browser and that is the problem I am having. Using the object code is supposed to correct that by it is not working properly as can be seen in the screen above.

Hello Chris

My apologies for assuming you did not know this.

You can definitely use object tags in your HTML Widget. We have a similar code that we propose using for swf files and it uses object tags as well.

It would appear that this link: http://www.cgcmarriageministry.org/re... does not exist. Can you please double-check the file name?

You may want to consider using this site: freevideocoding.com

1. Locate the URL of your file. e.g. http://yourdomain.yolasite.com/resour....
2. Please go to freevideocoding.com.
3. Select the media you want to post.
4. Enter your Media file location (the URL of your file)
5. Select "Embed the Player".
6. Click on "Make HTML" button.
7. Highlight and copy the code provided.
8. Drag and drop an HTML widget and paste in the code.
9. Click "OK".

You should see your video working. Please note that there is a buffering period - the speed of this is dependent on the speed of your internet's server.

Ok I have tried your sugestion, and as I stated earier it works fine in IE, but not in Firefox. In firefox, I get a "waiting for video" which never goes away.

According to my searching the internet this can be fixed by using the code I listed above using object and embed. Unfortunately the object part is not working as in my screen shot I posted earlier where it shows the object close in red.

Any sugestions?

You might try checking your plugins in Firefox. Go to Tools>>Add-ons>>Plugins and make sure QuickTime is enabled and that you have the latest version. Also, (though I don't know why it would work in IE) the link above to the file in your file manager is not working. You may want to doublecheck that.
