Playing Video

Thanks for the reply, but I think that I must be missing something. The linked page shows some examples of animated gifs, but no self hosted video?

I did a trial and it worked very well. This was to display a video from my PC.

Now, if I purchase XenForo I will be wanting to insert video already hosted/stored on my website as XenForo is going to be running alongside my site.
But I do not want to increase my webspace and ££££ by increasing the amount of hosting space that I need by using duplicate storage areas.

How do you currently display those videos?

You could embed the videos in XF by creating a custom BB code to duplicate it.

I currently display those videos with HTML5 code.

Thats a thought, is it possible to get into the code view and edit it in XenForo ?
I think that I have just found the answer to my question in the insert menu. I am well used to HTML.
Very surprised to see how many codes are supported.

                </table></td>
              </tr>
            </table>
I placed this table here as an experiment to see if it would display. Is the entire HTML library supported ?
If it is, then displaying video will not be a problem.
Please advise.

HTML is not directly supported.

You need to create custom bb codes to reproduce it.

Table code is already included, as are several video embedding services.

You will need to create a custom one for your own use.

I recommend trying it out on the demo.

Why did the table code I inserted not display as a table ?
I understand about video embeding services.

What sort of HTML is supported ?
I don't understand having a button to insert code, just to be told that it is not supported ??
Things like the video tag and the iframe tag are all just ground level HTML code.

I am getting very confused as to just what is what here.
It's a lot of money to pay just for the privilege of designing your own code (Assuming it can even be done)
