Generation I Hybrid Flash Templates

Ansel:

default size assumed: 500x280
All videos that are sized to something other then the default size will need to have their width and height entered into the admin *after* upload (located next to video name and description)

videos must be in flv format. The player will play any size flv, but we recommend it be under 350 px tall and 700 px wide. Check our knowledgebase for workarounds for larger videos and uploading videos if a steady fast connection is not available.

Generation II Hybrid Flash Templates

ALL Generation II templates have the same video sizing guidelines: 

videos can be any size/ratio. If no width and height are entered then they will play at their true size. If a width and height is entered for the video then it will play at that width and height. 

videos must be in flv format or H.264 encrypted (non protected) .mov, .m4p, or *.f4v format. The player will play any size flv, but we recommend it be under 350 px tall and 700 px wide. Check our knowledgebase for workarounds for larger videos and uploading videos if a steady fast connection is not available.




Flexsitez Professional Photo Blog 

The Flexsitez Professional Photo Blog does NOT have built in video functionality, however, you can embed video in pages and posts using a plugin. 

We do not recommend a specific plugin, nor can we support 3rd party plugins, however, you can view available options here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=video+embed





HTML5 templates

ALL HTML5 templates have the same video sizing guidelines:

Videos can be uploaded in mp4 and ogg formats.

To ensure that your videos can be viewed in all browsers you will need to upload a version of the video in BOTH mp4 and ogg formats.

When uploading the same video in different formats, the file name must be the same for both except with different extentions (such as MyVideo.mp4 and MyVideo.ogg). On your site, each video will only be listed once even when two versions of it have been uploaded, and the correct version will be used depending on the site visitor's browser.

"Name", "Height" and "Width" settings will only be pulled from the first occurance of a video (for example if you upload MyVideo.mp4 and MyVideo.ogg and in the list of uploaded files, the mp4 version is listed first, "Name", "Height" and "Width" settings of the .ogg file will be ignored on your actual site).

When testing videos on the admin page, if you are using Firefox, only .ogg files will play and in most other browsers only .mp4 files will play.

The available height for videos is determined by "Max Image Height" found at Edit Site Settings and Music > Edit General Settings/Colors (by default set at 650). The available width for videos is "Max Image Height" x "site_height_to_width_ratio" found at Edit Site Settings and Music > Edit Advanced Settings > General Advanced Settings (by default set to 1.5). For example with default settings the available area for videos is 975x650 (650 x 1.5 = 925). To prevent your video from extending beyond the content area you should make sure the height and width settings are not larger than the available height and width, regardless of the files original size.
