I am working on a project where I will be uploading videos to DreamObjects and then presenting them in a WordPress site.
So far so good…However:
certain videos do not play in Firefox
WordPress does not seem to recognize some formats as videos
I know this would all be easier if I just used Youtube or Vimeo to upload videos to, but I need the ability to set a download link as well, so I need direct links to the actual files (thus the DreamObjects approach).
Does anyone have experience with different video formats; which codec/format is the best for playing on WordPress? Cross-browser compatible, etc.
Read some interesting thoughts on this here:
In my case, I will still need a download link, so I need to either:
-Upload once to Vimeo, and once to DreamObjects (one for streaming, one for downloading)
-Upload two versions (ogg and mp4 maybe?) to DreamObjects and add those to my Video tag as fallback
