    I’ve searched the forum for an answer to this and tried all of the various iterations found here —

    https://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds

    https://codex.wordpress.org/Video_Shortcode

    — and the MP4 video on my latest home page (foblearningcenter.com) simply will not load and play. Its a large file, but this doesn’t strike me as the problem. Help if you can.

    Thanks.

    I also tried Franz Josef. No go.

    I’ve been told to upload to YouTube and embed the resulting code. I’ve kept it unlisted on YouTube, so I believe this is a good workaround.

    I am full circle on this. YouTube embeds are not secure and I would prefer to be able to embed directly. A solution would be helpful. Thanks.

    Is the video you’re referring to located on the homepage? If yes, the URL for that video is incorrect, which is why the video is not loaded. This is the URL that I see when I looked at the code:

    http://foblearningcenter.com/marc/public_html/foblearningcenter.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/Intro-2.mp4

    Should just be:

    http://foblearningcenter.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/Intro-2.mp4

    Thanks, and yes, between correcting the path (had to move the video) and a player plug-in, all is well, thanks. FV Player. Very helpful.

    Glad it helped! Marking this thread as resolved then (you can do this as well).
