looking at wordpress for video page
on Aug 13, 2009 at 3:36:08 am

I am looking to redo my hobbiest video web page. I want to have a very easy way for viewers to leave comments, and an easy way for me to add graphics and sponsers/advertisements . I'm not too good at web design, but know a little! With Wordpress, can I just embed my qt movies without using youtube or the likes? I really like what I've read about so far, but cant find specifics on this question.
current web page:
http://www.marshallmovies.net/vidpage.html
Thanks,
Dean

been reading all night! With respect to adding QT movies, All I can come up with are a bunch of out of date "plug ins" that dont seem to work very well, or the "videopress" which is kinda like youtube in that it reencodes .

Did you look at this one ..? http://learn.awakenedvoice.com/2007/06/06/embedding-video-in-wordpress/

With this and standard qt embed code you should be good to go.

Wordpress is a GREAT tool to build and maintain a website if you don't feel comfortable with code. It will do exactly what you want. You will need to add some plugins and flash players to optimize the site, but go with Wordpress.

I would recommend you look a the jwplayer. It is an excellent flash player and can play H264 quicktime. This will ensure that 99+ of all views can view your file. It is free for non-commercial users.
