Hi I have a problem loading up my picasa video. it's basically a slide show. I found a tutorial about a week ago and followed all steps and was able to add it to my page. BUT it had adds and a link to picasa, which i wasnt fond of. back to the point, I recently deleted that one and added a new one to picasa.. uploaded and used the embeded link to paste into my html widget and badabing badaboom it doesnt work! i tried this step and many others, but my video just starts, stalls bit and then ask you to press play, when it diverts you to my picasa page and the video, which works perfectly... i thought it could be a coding error, but i took the steps over and over again and it just wont play!? any advice would be super welcome and/or you can give me an alternative to a slidemaker that does NOT have any adds, one that autoplays up on entry to my homepage and one that is not a flickr based one... because flickrs not my cuppa tea. Thanks for your feedback, eagerly awaiting it! Mick

IGNORE ABOVE

ok, so it finally worked for some stupid reason! I guess I was prematurely expecting it to work, when the video had not yet synced through the servers.. or something mad like that... SO now I'm hoping someone might be able to give me a hint on how to tamper with the code from the embeded vid. I'm trying to get the video to NOT link to my picasa page. that i'd be happy with.. looping the vid would be amazing. any thoughts are welcome!

I'm actually hoping to be able to get some coding similar to that used on this website: http://www.certainlywood.co.uk

Hello aptatibz,
I'm glad to hear your first issue has been remedied. Can you be more specific about what feature on that website you are looking to replicate. Possibly we will be able to give you some suggestions.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hey Emmy.

on the site below you will find located under the banner 'if you like' a series of 2 or 3 pictures fading in and out from one to the other.

that's what I'm looking for... the ability of some movement...

http://www.certainlywood.co.uk

I'm also seeking an online portal for html codes... I cant seem to find 'the right site' that just hosts an endless amount of codes..

hope this makes sense..

HEy Sanja, thanks for your reply.

And yes, I am a silver user :)

the link you gave me does seem awesome...
I just need to get my head wrapped around it.

I'm not entirely sure at this moment in time where to start.

we'll see.

thanks again.

Simply add the below code inside the section of the page:

does it mean into the html widget?
