Adding video to WordPress seems easy, right?
Why am I writing this post? Because if you have followed this blog for a while, you know I like not only passing what I’ve learned along to up and coming web developers, but I use this as a reference sometimes. I recently completed a freelance project that involved moving very large video files into a new WordPress install, and I came across multiple problems that were hard to find answers to. Adding video looks like it would be easy, right? Just click that little Upload/Insert button, drag/drop the file onto the page, and BAM! Video file is in the media library. What could POSSIBLY go wrong? I’ll start with the background to the project, and go over how I solved the issue.
