Using the Video QuickTags plugin

You can embed a variety of video services as well as your own uploaded Quicktime movies.

  1. Upload your media to the blog server and copy the link to the location of the video file you'd like to display
    • If your video file is too large, you may need to make host it on another web server and simply link to the file from within Wordpress
  2. Use the Video Quick tags available in the editing bar of your post or page
  3. Paste the url to your video file

Change your Video Quicktags Settings

Enable more video types or video sites and change the default dimension sizes for displaying video

  1. Go to Settings > Video Quicktags

Using the Embed Video plugin

Another option is to use the Embed Video plugin. The advantage is that you can specify a movie poster as well as a download link for the files. See Embed Enhanced or Video Podcast - Wordpress. This will work for just video as well (doesn't need to be a podcast).
