Is it possible to insert MP4 files into Dreamweaver CS6 - and then once uploaded will those MP4 files play on most browsers?

I just read that if computers lacks Quicktime the video will not play.

I am attempting to avoid using links to my films on YouTube and Vimeo.

Looking for alternatives.

Let me know,

Thanks!

Sounds like a bad connection, unless your video is corrupt.

It is not a matter of placing the video in Dreamweaver, Dreamweaver is merely a tool that allows you to put an image into an HTML document. To do that have a look at this example Re: Controls over video issue

QuickTime is dead.  Apple stopped developing the plugin a long time ago.

CS6 is about 6 years behind the current DW CC 2018.  But if memory serves, you could add HTML5 video from CS6.'s insert panel.  

The code below works in all modern devices.  Change the poster image and video file to your own.

<!doctype html>

<html lang="en">

<head>

<meta charset="UTF-8" />

<title>HTML5 Video Example</title>

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

<style>

video {

height:100%; width:100%;

display:block; margin: 0 auto }

</style>

</head>

<body>

<video controls poster="https://placeimg.com/525/300/nature">

<source src="http://techslides.com/demos/sample-videos/small.mp4" type="video/mp4">

</video>

</body>

Hello

Got the MP4 to play on the page uploaded to the Internet

However the video keeps pausing, then starts.

It this simply a poor Internet connection?

Thanks!

What filesize is your MP4?

At rendering, what framerate & bitrate did you use?

What I uploaded was a 9 minute clip, a sample at hand.

I didn't factor in framerate and bitrate in this exercise.

That I need to work on.

The film clip was processed with Premier Pro as with all the MP4's in this collection

Framerate 29:97; bitrate 9151

Thanks!

Handbrake is free.

Use Handbrake to compress and optimize video for web viewing

This is very good news!

I'll start work on this MP4 collection using Handbrake.

Thanks for the exceptional support.
