Hi,

I just bought the embed plugin. Is it possible to link to an mp4 video from a custom server and embed this into a "youtube-like" videoplayer?

Thanks in advance

Felix

Hey, I just bought this too and I'm wondering the same thing.

I have a video file stored at 

https://storage.googleapis.com/bucket.masteriller.com/KRS-One%20-%20Sound%20of%20Da%20Police%20-%20Ready%20or%20Not%20Remix%20-%20Master%20Iller.mp4

But I can't figure out how to get it embedded into a forum post

Hi @gwdgensert and @dallensmith.

Please read wpForo Embeds addon description on product page? This addon doesn’t have any relation to video file uploading and attaching. The wpForo Embeds addon is 3rd party content embedding addon. For example, it embeds Youtube link and displays video player. It also supports lots of other embed-able contents… You just need to put the video service share URL.

The mp4 video from a custom server is not a video hosting service like Youtube or Vemio. If you have a MP$ video file you can upload it and show with HTML5 player using wpForo Advanced Attachments addon: https://gvectors.com/product/wpforo-advanced-attachments/

This addon is designed to attach files. Video, Audio, Text, Images and other types.

If you want to display videos from other websites you should make sure they are available in the addon list:

wpForo Embeds Addon

I'm sorry but in this list there is no video hostings for adult videos.

The only way is upload that videos as MP4 files, but for this purpose you need wpForo Advanced Attachments addon, not the wpForo Embeds addon.
