Hello, everyone. Following the instructions in my ultimate HTML 5 and CSS course, I tried embedding an HD video in web site that’s locally hosted on my PC. Each time I uploaded the video, I got a message that says, “The file is not displayed in the editor because it is either binary or uses an unsupported text encoding.” Please how can I resolve the issue and continue with my learning? I’m a beginner in the course, and coding in general. Thanks.
Welcome in here.
I am hardly ever working with video but I just gave it a try and I love how our times makes such thing possible in a simple fashion.
Here is my code and the result:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <title>Document</title> </head> <body> <video src="vid/BL Prod.mp4" width="50%" controls></video> </body> </html>
Can you share your code and give more details ?
- Where do you put files ?
- What video container are you trying to use (mkv, mp4, avi, …)?
- What is the video codec (avi, h264, h265, xvid, av1, …) ?
Your video player may provide you with the info.
here for the video I used.
