Embeddable web media player...ideally that supports wmv?

I have a .wmv video that I want to put online. Unfortunately, I can't put it on YT as the guy who is letting me host it doesn't want it on YT.

Is there a free player I can embed on my web site to show the video?

I suppose I could convert it to a different format as a last resort.

It's a Wordpress site: BlackBeltDL.com.

    WHy dont u just convert it?

    I use http://www.freemake.com/

    you can convert it to flash and it gives u a embed code (You do need somewhere to host the file tho)

    WMV without converting. One of your option would be WMP.

    Don't do such things. If i ever see a site with embeded WMP, I will leave and never get back again.

    Convert it to flash, much, much better.

    And some offtopyc - I have gone through that site and can not really accept that someone can learn martial arts virtually. I myself have trained for some time, 3-4 times weekly for 1-2 hours each time, can't see how this can be done without many partners and an instructor.

    I don't mind converting to flash or any other format, but I have to self-host it, so the question is what javascript, java, etc. player do i put on my site.

    I certainly agree that it is vastly preferable, and that is the way I learned as well. No argument from me on that.

    However, it is a growing field and there are a lot of "name brand" instructors who offer virtual lessons. I thought I'd put together a resource site that sorts out the legitimate from the scams.

  • Convert to mp4, use JWPlayer with HTML5 fallback and an mp4 module for your respective web server to allow seeking.

    Lets you play across nearly all devices, and JWPlayer has a lovely WordPress plugin.

    That sounds like a good stratetegy.

  • You can use your own player with HTML, don't remember right now but its necessary to have your own video in a local folder/area.

    Or the second idea is upload it to Vimeo (prefer it) or Youtube.

    @ihatetonyy knows his stuff, efficient method too.

  • Convert it, then use this http://videojs.com

    The only solution is Silverlight (except WMP), but the plugin deployment rate is low.

    So, do it the HTML5 way.
