  • Embed own video player to website

    Posted on March 18th, 2010 Sean Add comments

         Sometimes I hate to embed Youtube to my website, cause somehow it seems like my friends in china can’t watch them. What I need just embed our own video player into the website:

    1. first, need a free player. There are many streaming player such jwplayer, flowplayer, etc. I prefer flowplayer, cause it’s simple. (download from here)
    2. Unzip, put all files into web server and choose an easily remembered place as you will place a path to these files later in your web pages.
      • To include file flowplayer-3.1.4.min.js in the web page you place the following tag in the HEAD section of your web page:
      • To place the link to your video file in the web page, the simplest way is to use the following A tag on your web page. The video will automatically play there:
      • Finally, to load the player on the A tag just described, you place the following script in your page, following the A tag:

  • WordPress with internal server error on 1and1 hosting

    Posted on March 3rd, 2010 Sean Add comments

         For some reason, wordpress will always display “Error 500 – internal server error” for some PHP pages. My webhosting is on 1and1, so somehow the setting of PHP server is not correct.
    Finally, got a solution and it works:

    Modify the file .htaccess on the root directory:

    1. Add the code following at top of .htaccess:
      AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
    2. Changing:
      RewriteEngine on
      to:
      RewriteEngine ON

         Save the file, upload to the server. Here you go.
