I've found a bunch of places that are doing music and movie downloads for you to use on your website. One place in particular is telling my to copy their text for the video clip and then paste it onto one of my pages to have the clip playing on my site...

I've just tried this and when I preview in the browser all that is on my page is the lines of text I pasted on!!!

Can anyone help?! I've got no idea how I'm meant to do this!!!!

Hi, are you pasting it into an html box?
Place an html box on the page & double click on it & then paste the code into the popup html properties box that will appear. Press ok after pasting & press preview.


Good luck.
If this is not the problem? Post the code they gave you back here.

Sorry for being dizzy but I'm not too sure what all that means!!! This is how I thought I had to add videos...
Add windows media player or something and add the file name in the properties box. As I only have a code I've been adding the code to that box! In the browser preview it comes up as a full white page with my video clip to the left of the screen and with a heap of strange text at the top of the page...

I'm probably doing things really wrong here! My page isn't published so I can't show you the results but this is the code for the video clip anyway:

<div style="margin:auto; width: 400px; height: 325px;"><div><object data="http://www.youtube.com/v/-iIYSZWLLPc" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%" height="100%"><param name="movie" value="<A href="http://www.youtube.com/v/-iIYSZWLLPc"></param></object></div><div">http://www.youtube.com/v/-iIYSZWLLPc"></param></object></div><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="<A href="http://downthisvideo.com/?url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iIYSZWLLPc">Download">http://downthisvideo.com/?url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iIYSZWLLPc">Download this video</a></div></div>

I'm a bit slow with all this so instructions on how to add these kind of videos would be fab! (I have no idea what a html box is!!!) Thanks!!!

Hang on... I've found the html box and pasted the code into that and it's working!!! Hurray for me!! BUT when you preview in browser it goes to like a full screen page with no background (even though I have one on my build page) and my scrollbars and stuff have disappeared... What's happened there?!

Hi, seems like you have a bit of extra code in the above.
I have removed some of it so you just have the Vid showing.
To place this on your page.
Cut the code below & paste it into an html box. (To do this)
In BV, Click on html box (top left on the side menus) & place on page. Double click on the html box & a html properties box will appear as a popup. Paste the code into this area & press ok. Press preview to test.


<div style="margin:auto; width: 400px; height: 325px;"><div><object data="http://www.youtube.com/v/-iIYSZWLLPc" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100%" height="100%"><param name="movie" value="</param></object></div><div style="text-align: center;"></a></div></div>




Good luck.


Ah! Just see the new post. Lol. No problem, The code above will do away with the text. May look neater.
You would have to post the pages url to see the other problem
