Embed a Video or Flash File

Once you upload your video file to a Multimedia page you can display the video on any of your pages.

Green Warning All files uploaded to your site via a Multimedia page are saved in the /f/ directory, meaning all of your multimedia files are located at http://www.yoursite.com/f/filename.ext where filename is the name of your file and ext is the file type. So, for example, if you uploaded "mymovie.wmv", the location of that file would be http://www.yoursite.com/f/mymovie.wmv.
