How do I show my own video on a web page

0 votes

I am trying to have my own video being displayed via a webpage on my Website.

When I have a page opened is cPanel's Site Builder, I provide the URL of my Video (MP4) file stored on the host-server by working with the Widget "Video" as seen under Media.

It then returns a message "Incorrect Video URL"

When I provide a Youtube URL, then all is fine.

What must I do to have my own video being shown?

Hi Carl

Please recheck the URL,

  • Please make sure that URL name is not too long.
  • Kindly check video length
  • file size and format
  • Upload Video via FTP and copy and use uploaded link
  • Try an alternative browser.

You need to insert the url of the video. I used to make my own video at https://cropvideo.co/ video cut tool and then inserted it in my website. It isn't hard at all, you can also check some information about it in google.

I think you should convert your video first. Try this tool  https://mp3.studio/youtube-downloader. It's very simple and fast and works with all the popular platforms on the Internet. Once you've converted the video, you can post it on your page as your own.
