FAQ268 | embed media

So with the new media embedding, no need to list off whitelisted sources. So I rewrote FAQ268 accordingly, and incorporated aveleh's placeholder suggestions. Eyeballs and comments more than welcome, old text preserved behind the cut.

You can add videos and other media from certain sites to your entries by entering HTML code provided by those services. (In some cases, you can also use the Rich Text editor to embed media in your entries.) Entries with embedded videos include a player for others to watch your video. Your video will not play automatically, people must choose to begin watching it instead.

In the HTML editor, enter the HTML code provided by these sites to embed a player into your entry. In the Rich Text editor, you can also embed media from sites marked with an asterisk (*) by clicking the LiveJournal Video button () and entering the URL of your video; you do not need to enter the embedding HTML code.

  • Rich Text Editor: If your video fails to load or loads incorrectly with the Rich Text editor, you will need to switch to the HTML editor and enter the embedding HTML code manually.
  • Video Doesn't Load: If the video does not load in your entry, edit your entry to correct the video's URL.
  • Invalid URL: If your entry appears with the error message Invalid url, your media does not use one of the supported services; either upload the media to a supported site or add a text link to it. If you are a representative of a video provider, contact webmaster@livejournal.com to add LiveJournal support for your site.
