I wanted to start this thread as a way to finally get an answer to a very basic question I had. I am afraid it's a deal breaker, and if I cannot find a solution - it's VB for me, and my license was simply a donation for legal fees.
All I want to do is embed video that is hosted on my server. I have no interest in YouTube, Vimeo, or other such places. This needs to look professional, and using third party servers isn't exactly professional looking. Also, before anyone suggests it - I have discussed this with Jaxel, and his XenMedio would almost work. The biggest issue is I don't like the look of the single video before being played, and there isn't any sizing available.
I would prefer something like a Flowplayer-type setup. Heck - I would like to use Flowplayer itself it at all possible. I asked this question once before, but the coversation was bouncing back and forth to YouTube, RuTube, and all the other things I don't want. I don't mind if the users embed those videos, but again - the site needs to look professional.
I guess I don't understand what the big deal is? Why is it so difficult to use Flowplayer (Or any other player for that matter) in the forum? I am asking as a non-developer, so dumb it down if you answer please.
But to be honest, this ability seems so 2002. I guess I don't understand why forum software is behind the curve when it comes to this. The biggest issue is that I am opening a forum that teaches technical analysis, and that's best done through video. If I do it through pictures - well....I am just like everyone else.
Thanks in advance,
