I am trying to add a FLV video to my site, but I see there is no widget (to my knowledge) to add such a video. I want to add it to my banner, is there anyway I could do this?

Hello garrettjames6,

If you can change the format to .swf, you can definitely add a flash banner to your site, but not in the banner position of a style that has a changeable banner - this is because the banner area does not support .swf files.

You could also choose a style that does not have a banner image area and place an HTML Widget at the top of the page and add a code for your flash file.

Here are some style possibilities that might work:

1. Squeaky Clean
2. Darkened
3. Midnightalley

The above are just a few styles without a banner image that also do not have a large amount of space between the top of the page and where you can begin to place widgets - you may also find another style that works better for you.

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you encounter any problems! .

This might be one of my last posts as my laptop is dying a slow, loud and painful death and there is no way I can afford to replace it.

I agree with Justine in that converting to SWF might be your best option because a FLV vide must be played by means of a FLV player with controls while a SWF can be easily embedded with only a simple piece of code.

Aura Free Video Converter is quite possibly one of the best free converters that I use:

Don't mess up your page with bad or difficult code trying to layer objects such as a search feature above/over your navigation menu or banner. Use a two column widget to do it instead... A Honey Bear Playhomes tip...
