hi

I uploaded a large mp4 video via ftp into the media folder.

In the File Manager it shows under unclassified files, not video files.

When attempting to place on page using the editor->video files, there is no video to insert.

Is there some file that needs to be edited to include mp4 as a video?   (v4.9.4 r25)

Help please???

Tks, Larry

I don`t think mp4 works with soholaunch.

Can you view the video by going to the files url? 

your sites url/media/file name.???

If so you may be able to use an include file to display it or a link.

You can use something like a you tube code an (iframe).

Or use you tube by uploading it to you tube and enbeding

the code using the custom code in soho page editor.
