Uploading your own video

Note: This article refers to the legacy version of the Website Builder. If you signed up to the HostPapa Website Builder after March 11 2020, you’re on the new version of the Website Builder. For help, go here.

We don’t currently have a tool that allows you to upload your video and play it on your HostPapa Website Builder site. You can, however, embed a video file to your site by following these steps:

  1. Locate the URL of your file (e.g., https://mysite.com/resources/myfile.wmv).
  2. Go to freevideocoding.com.
  3. Select the media you want to post.
  4. Enter your media file location (the URL of your file).
  5. Select Embed the Player.
  6. Click on Make HTML button.
  7. Highlight and copy the code provided.
  8. Drag and drop an HTML widget onto your site, and paste in the code.
  9. Click Save.

Please note: There is a buffering period. The speed of this is dependent on the speed of your internet server.

You can also add a video to your site using the YouTube or Metacafe widgets. Take a look at this tutorial for more information: How to add a video to your site.

Please ensure that you own the copyright to the video you will be playing.
