This article is about how to make a Web Video and provides information about making It play directly on Your site or forum
Recently I came across a good application on a download site - it is called Socusoft Web Video Player. I got to know more after visiting the website of this program. I am a web designer and I used to find it complicated to put a video clip or more clips to the website and play it directly, which was required by some of my customers. Now, I got to know this useful technology, which brings me great convenience and I would like to share with you guys about how easy it is to make a web video. Although I am talking about (and using examples from) this specific application, there are many similar web video players available for download - I certainly suggest you have a detailed look to find the one that suits you and your needs.
The principle of these applications is to integrate your video with a player together with relevant output codes to be embedded into HTML of your webpage or blog. It will take you three steps for it. The input files accept FLV format only so as to enable output video player to playback clips. You may meet with the problem about videos of different format - well do not worry, it is common for these applications to have a conversion component which accepts various video formats. This means that it is easy to convert your video files, which may be in a multitude of formats, to FLV. Below shows the conversion button of this web video player.
Launch the video player program. Click "Add" to add one video clip or more in order as you need.
Go to "Themes" and choose the template of web player for your video clips. There are lots of great templates. Get one as you like or that can match the style of your website or blog. The program allows you to customize web player in advanced mode. Click to button "Customize Parameters" at the bottom right corner to find out more.
When all of the above are done, go to the last step "Publish". At this step, it allows you to change the name of your output web video player.
Your video has right now been embedded into the player. You may click "View Web Page" to enjoy your web video. Click "Open Output Folder" and you will find relevant files and output codes are ready to be embedded into HTML of your webpage or blog directly.
Ok, go on with playing around with this app. I think you can find out more cool features and let me know then.
A big deficiency of the video player I have used here is that it is not compatible with MacOS - there are probably far better players available on the internet, if you find one then please do post a link to it.
