Web publishing

I have a web page where I publish my photographs and tell stories. I use Wordpress and Bluehost is my host. I also shoot HD video. Some time ago I attempted uploading video files but ran into problems; it was not easy. Then I discovered Vimeo Plus, paid one yearís subscription, and bingo, a piece of cake. I render my videos in Vegas Pro 10 using the Sony AVC and the Internet 1280x 720 30p template where Iím told ĎUse this setting to create a higher quality 16:9 file suitable for uploading to Internet sites etc.í I log on to Vimeo and upload the files, no problem, and thatís that. Whatever Vimeo does seems to not make a difference regarding viewing. I canít tell the difference between the rendered file and that which I view on Vimeo but then a more discerning eye might not agree. Whatever, quality wise not too shabby.

So then I embed the URL in my web page and, obviously, by clicking on the link in my web page one is taken to the clip at my Vimeo page.

Now with all due respects to Vimeo (how I wince at the welcome Ďyou're new, aren't you? Ė Ďno Iím not,í I shout at the monitor) at the end of the day I really could do without Vimeo making its presence felt, in fact I seriously donít like the look of the place. No offense, thatís just me.

So my question is how can I upload my clips, some quite large like 2 gig, to Bluehost and display them on my web page using my style and be done with Vimeo altogether. I donít mind paying, not an arm and a leg, but about what Iím paying Vimeo Plus would be fine.

(And never again will I be told Ďyou're new, aren't youí, with no way to reply?)

Any suggestion?

Many thanks.

John

Hi John,
You don't have to pay anything. Check out http://flowplayer.org/ . The free open source version of Flowplayer is all you need, you can set up a basic player in minutes even if you've never done anything like that before, and when you get some experience customise it to your heart's desire. There are ample instructions on the site.
(P.S. I checked out a whole lot of video players before deciding on Flowplayer - you can see one simple example where I'm using it on the Federation of Australian Movie Makers website.

Cheers...(given your name) I trust you are not suffering from the disastrous flooding over there.

John, you see that message when you aren't logged in to Vimeo. If you log in it goes away. The paid subscription allows you to embed video on other sites and it displays in a player that you can customize. Look under TOOLS/Embed this video.
