Stream video content from another website

Recommended Posts

Hi there i was wondering is it is possible to stream a video clip from an outside source on my osC main page, so for example if there was a music video on a bands official website is it possible to copy the url and have osC load it when my page opens??

I supose its a little like embeding a .SWF but as opposed to inserting an "Actual" movie i simply embed an address for osC to load.

 

Thanks

Getting into the discussion. I'm working on a site for movie rentals, can this be done with trailers from various sites?

Just between us, remember there are only 10 kinds of people in the world; those who understand binary and those who don't!!

I am also desperate to add video to my site, hopefully on the main page basically where the header banner is right now, and I cant for the life of me even get the banner to be removed. I tried turning it off (making it a red instead of green button) and making the new banner be the video link, but its sure not working. ANY HELP totally appreciated. email [email protected] or PM me. THANKS

the problem is occuring because, i assume, that we are calling the page asa opposed to the file! So for example Youtube if you maximise a video and simply copy the code to the relevant <embed> location it WILL NOT work, you need to call the file itself. Dont know how to do this maybe right click over the file and "properties>address (url)" this may work if the file is MPG or AVI??

OK, you guys here is what I did. May be the code will help more than how I did it but let me explain it a little more before posting the code.

 

I uploaded my vid to google as I didn't want to keep it locally on my server as it is quite a large file. This may take a day or so as it has to be aproved by google. Once the vid id in the que then it is just a simple matter of going to the file upload section, clicking on the uploaded video you want to watch and then on the right side there is a link asking if you want to Email - Blog - Post on MySpace. Click on that. It will open several options underneight. One it to Embed code. Click on that. This will provide you with the code in a small box below and allow you to copy and then paste that code into your product box when your adding a new product or editing a product.

 

I pasted mine into a table as I use a template to help keep all my products looking the same. Save it and test it on your page. Here is the code I used from google as it encludes the embed statement it may help.

 

 

 

<embed style="width:400px; height:326px;" id="VideoPlayback" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?d...24536&hl=en"> </embed>

 

 

 

Hope this will help you guys alittle more and if you get something better please IM me or email me and let me know.

Has anyone thought to use the "product homepage" feature to create a link to the video clips stored elsewhere?

 

Or maybe search the contributions for a really goopd one that adds clips to the product descriptions???

 

Yeah... me either....

I had the same problem. Youtube Embed code for products did not work.

 

I just see this page and the info on pasting the google video. thanks, I copied the Google code to my page and it worked.

 

SO.... I thought I will change the video bit in that code to the youtube video I wanted it and works. At last!

 

So this is what I done

 

Copy this Google Code into your product

 

<embed style="width:400px; height:326px;" id="VideoPlayback" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?d...24536&hl=en"> </embed>

 

take your YOUTUBE CODE (example below)

 

<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="

name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="
" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

 

 

take out the link info ONLY

 

 

then use this code and replace it in the google video code we know already works, so it looks like this

 

 

<embed style="width:400px; height:326px;" id="VideoPlayback" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="

&hl=en"> </embed>

 

then pate the above code into your product info (in html mode)

 

Thats what I done and works perfect. I know nothing about coding, just a 2 second thing I worked out and works for me

I've been able to embed youtube videos perfectly, however;

 

My site is secure (https), so when I embed a youtube video, the visitor gets a message saying that there are nonsecured items about to you, and they are asked if they wish to display the nonsecured items.

 

Anyone know a way around this....aside from the user having to use firefox or disable security in IE?
