Insert video from Amazon S3
Feb 14, 2019
My workplace recently had to take over third party story files that were embedded with videos. The files sizes range 3-5 gig and take forever to save and publish, and we can't even store them without getting transmission errors.
I've been looking into using video embed codes. I extracted the videos and stored them in Amazon S3. I went by this tutorial to generate the embed code and got this:
<object classid=”clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000″ codebase=”http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0″ width=”1850” height=”1040” title=”Module_1_Introduction”>
<param name=”movie” value=”https://s3.amazonaws.com/aicpa-isd-001/Articulate/data-analytics/S01_M01/video_6FuG2CgeJ9R_22_48_1850x1040.mp4” />
<param name=”quality” value=”high” />
<embed src=”https://s3.amazonaws.com/aicpa-isd-001/Articulate/data-analytics/S01_M01/video_6FuG2CgeJ9R_22_48_1850x1040.mp4” quality=”high” pluginspage=”http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”1850” height=”1040“></embed>
But when I copy and paste the code into the Insert Video from Website box, I get the result captured in the 1st attachment. SL inserted extra quote marks into the embed code.
I tried stripping the quote marks out of the code before pasting. It set up the video frame, but the 2nd attachment, which is the preview, shows that the video is unavailable. How do I fix this?
