Hello Gail

To embed a .mov file into your site, please follow these steps:

First, you need to upload the .mov to your File Manager.

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.

I hope this answers your question. If not, or if you had something different in mind, please let me know.

Sorry Gail

I have been offline for most of the day. I took a look at your site and the link you have to your .mov file is not correct because URLs are case sensitive.

Please try this URL instead:

http://cadet.yolasite.com/resources/R...

Please let me know if you have any further trouble with this.

Hey Gail

Can you please try publishing (hit the green, "Publish to the web" your site and then try adding the code again?

Please let me know if that makes any difference.

Hang in there.. we'll get this worked out somehow!
