Want to play an mp4 video on your site? It's pretty easy using html5, and even easier in BoltWire. Just use the embedded video player that comes built right in to your browser.

To use it, store your mp4 video in a files/videos folder and call the file name like this:

[(embed video myvideo)]

That's all there is to it. It will load file myvideo.mp4 and display a nice player with controls.

There are many options for how the video tag works in html5. Do a little research online into your options, then feel free to edit the file as desired.

If you want to customize the player size, feel free to edit page code.embed.vimeo.

Note: I've also added a youtube player that works the same way. Just replace vimeo with youtube.
