Posting MP4 files

Is there any way to embed an MP4? When I do this it just shows a static image that does not play?

Yes, the two things to check are the syntax you are using to embed the MP4, and the path to the MP4 file. This syntax should work:

<video controls>
  <source src="/video.mp4" type="video/mp4">

Replace /video.mp4 with the path to your video file, with your blog folder as root

Does that help? If you share a link to the specific post, I'm happy to investigate further

Thanks that worked. I had everything but ‘controls’ in the opening video tag.
