Forum Question: Inserting video from Flip video camera into IWeb

I am trying to use a video from a Flip video camera in IWEB. It works fine until the website is published. Once published the video isn’t there. In it’s place, is a Quicktime logo with a question mark. Any thoughts on how to get this to work. I’ve used videos from our Nikon digital camera and they work great.

    I’d convert the video first. Convert it using QuickTime X into a more standard format. Then use that file inside of iWeb.

    When you say works fine you mean you can play back on your mac? What format is the flip video in? Also if I am not wrong those flip video record in HD and depending on length of video those file sizes can be quite large especially fir rendering in a browser. Not that they won’t play in browser but the person trying to view will have to download that huge file. Like Gary said you can open with QuickTime X and “save as” a smaller file. QuickTime X will give you choices to pick from or you can custom.
