How do I add a Flash video to my entry?

You can embed a Flash video in a blog entry as long as the Flash video is available elsewhere online. Currently, you can't upload your own Flash video to your blog.

  1. Sign in to your blog and start a new entry.
  2. Write your entry in the Text of entry icon Text of entry box.
  3. View the Flash movie in a web browser and copy the URL from the browser address bar (ending in .flv or .f4v).
  4. Go back to your blog entry and select the Insert embedded media button in the toolbar.
  5. In the Insert embedded media popup paste the Flash video URL in the top text field:
    Insert embedded media popup with URL of Flash video file highlighted
  6. Click Insert at the bottom of the popup box. You should now see the URL enclosed in [media] tags like this:
    Flash video url is wrapped inside media tags
  7. You can test the video is embedded and working by previewing your entry.
  8. When you've finished writing your entry click Publish now.
  9. You should now see the Flash video in your live entry and be able to play it.
