| One of the best ways to promote or market your storybook app is to publish a video trailer, which you have created in FlashR, on YouTubeTM or Vimeo. Some potential readers will find your video on YouTube or Vimeo by searching the web or these websites. But there are a few other ways to use a video trailer to promote your children's book app. Once you have uploaded your trailer, you will also want to embed it into your storybook app's landing page, your author/artist website and your app's Facebook Fan page.|
As with other WordPress features, adding a video to your WordPress site works differently than for basic HTML webpages. YouTube and Vimeo offer HTML code for sharing your video on webpages but WordPress will not work with this "sharing" code. But not to worry, embedding video into WordPress webpages is simple.
Let's walk through the steps. You will first want to export your Flash trailer in the .mov format. Next, upload your .mov video to your YouTube or Vimeo account.
If you are comfortable working with HTML code. You can add the video URL into the source code. Click the HTML tag to switch from the Visual to the HTML editor for your post or page. On a separate line, add only the URL. You do not need to include the embed tags when working with the source code.
