How to embed MP4 files

Embed MP4 files in a manner similar to the way you embed WMV or MIDI files. Just like other file types, embedded MP4 files require a HTML code that includes the embedded file's size settings and settings for how the file will play. Embedding an MP4 file does not require an extensive HTML knowledge, however a general understanding of HTML coding is necessary.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Type your user name and password into your Web server's login page.

  2. 2

    Navigate to the Web page on which you will embed the MP4 file. Click on the section of the page where you will embed the player and file.

  3. 3

    Insert this HTML code:

    <OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"

    CODEBASE="" WIDTH="160" HEIGHT="136" >

    <PARAM NAME="src" VALUE="" >

    <PARAM NAME="autoplay" VALUE="true" >

    <EMBED SRC="" TYPE="image/x-macpaint"



  4. 4

    Replace both instances of "" with the actual file path for your MP4 file.

  5. 5

    Click "Publish" to make your embedded MP4 file and player active on your Web page.
