    Here is my site:

    please help me!

    You can use Vipers Quicktags for self-hosted videos. Go to Settings->Video Quicktags and enable the buttons you need and they will show up in the rich text editor. There is also a help section included with the plugin in Settings->Video Quicktags->Help.

    If your videos are in mp4 format, use for example [flv][/flv].

    It is hard to help if we don't know exactly what you are doing, and what is not working as expected. There are many ways to add videos, to simply state that things don't work does not give us much to go on in trying to find a solution.

    Here is a post with a video. I want the video to display on the left, all I get is a link. If you give me detailed instructions, I would greatly appreciate it. I am new at this.

    Did you try with the plugin Vipers Quicktags that helgatheviking recommended?

    To use Vipers quicktags:
    - Install the plugin from
    - Enable the plugin in the plugins panel
    - Now you can write [flv][/flv] wherever in your post to embed the video.

    If you want to have an easy button in the rich text editor, go to Settings->Video Quicktags and check the checkbox for the flash video player. Remember to click save. There is also a help section in Settings->Video Quicktags->Help with answers to common questions like how to skin the player and what additional parameters you can set.
