Working with WordPress video and Audio.

In this lesson, we will learn about the WordPress video. So, throughout the last lessons of WordPress, I have talked about the media element. It means rather than WordPress images because through media item button you can add any media element which you can add like images, documents, pdf, audio and video files, and if you add audio and video files to WordPress.

Even set up audio and video automatically visitors can enjoy them, now you know this, I am telling when comes to audio and video, it rarely good idea to upload the file directly to WordPress.

Through the add media button, you can add any media element which you can add like images, documents, pdfs, audio and videos files.

You have better options to use dedicated services.

1 media hosting service

  • YouTube.
  • Vimeo.
  • Video Press.
  • Brightcove.
  • SoundCloud.

Any of other media of rich hosing media services on the web, their simple reason for this, unlike the image, documents, audio and video files, are putting huge trend on your server.

If one or couple or more people downloading those files same time your server might get big trouble.

There is also an issue of file support. Different browsers required different types of video encoding means if you want your video available to all users. You need to have at least different file formats.

So, if you plan to add your audio and video to your site, in almost every case, you should use third-party services like YouTube,  Vimeo, SoundCloud, and one of private option.

Speaking myself that only time I have used native WordPress hosting solutions one we build a custom player that is not connected to the internet. That only display one single computer and all other cases, I use third-party service, by using the service.
