    Adding a Video into an article on Volusion

    Hi,

    I have a video I would like to add to an article. The video is in the form of an FTP link. Please can someone tell me how to add the video, including the code and where to add width and height. So far I have simply tried something like this:
    <a href="http://www.website.com/v/Videos/Best-videos/Great-for-all.avi"/></a>

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Just upload it to YouTube and link to that instead if you want to embed it.

    Agree - don't try to stream an AVI from your own site. Half the visitors will end up downloading it automatically and the other half will get messages from the browser asking how to handle the file. Use YouTube.

    Another upside is that if you are smart about how you tag and title your videos (we have over 325 of them on youtube), it will provide another source of traffic. There are way to many vendors that don't smartly use video (or at all) and who's products would absolutely benefit from it.
