Embedding Video in Product Page

Hi all,

 

My employer has tasked me with embedding a product demo video on a product page. I've had no trouble using the YouTube video however he has decided he wants the original file embedded to remove any association with YouTube.

 

The code I used for the YouTube version worked fine. This was:

 

<p>
    <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="214" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/LbAYBlrFhjI?feature=player_detailpage" width="380"></iframe>

</p>

 

I attempted altering the "src" to the files location on our server:

 

https://www.leegodbold.com/public_html/video/kitsoundsonar.mp4 and https://www.leegodbold.com/public_html/video/kitsoundsonar.ogv

 

However I get several error messages telling me that the sites security certificate is not valid, please contact the webmaster etc etc.

 

Is there another way to embed the video? A way which I wouldn't have to deal with the security certificate and such other business.

 

Any advice, positive or negative, would be really appreciated. I'm totally stumped as it stands as I'm not yet a pro with html.

 

Thanks very much!

Hi George

In all the "src" links you give as examples you are specifying https which is a secure link - if your website doesnt have a SSL installed then that will cause that error.

Of course, my personal view is the every CubeCart website should always use an SSL - you are dealing with customer account information and are not protecting it ??

Al, that did help greatly. Got it working after adding <video> tags. Thanks alot, that's a great weight lifted from my shoulders. Personally I think a YouTube link works better but it's not my call.

 

Ian, I'm not sure. This is my first real life website experience so I'm taking it one step at a time. I will raise these issues when I speak to the sites founder.

 

Thank you both again, I am forever in your debt!

No matter what YouTube video you use, the video will almost always (I haven't seen a YouTube hosted video without one yet) have a "Watch on YouTube" button the video. This will pull customers away from your store and to YT. This does not separate you from youtube associations well.
