    I need to include a video in a blog post. Previously I’ve done it through YouTube, but this one can’t go on YouTube because of the permissions associated with it.
    I tried to upload with the media manager, but at 135MB, the file is too large. Any ideas?
    thanks

    Hi Tammy,

    You could increase the file upload limit on your wordpress website http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-increase-the-max-upload-size

    Probably beyond my competence/confidence at present… have been meaning to watch your CSS for beginners tutorial for a while!

    Another option is to use Vimeo as this has better content control and privacy settings that youtube

    Thanks Jamie
    The video I’m wanting to upload has been provided by Sky Sports … I’m only allowed to pop it on the website – no where else unfortunately.

    Hi Tammy,

    Well there is an option in Vimeo that allows you to only show the video on a certain website i.e yours – so essentially you are just using vimeo’s servers to host and serve the video but nobody can see it there, they can only view it on your website :)

    Thanks so much Jamie – I’ll have a look at Vimeo.
