Video Chooser

Inserting videos with the Video Chooser.

When inserting videos into content pages in version v3 you can set the video, dimension or resolution, by entering in the size while inserting the video. Keep in mind that the bigger the video window the lower the resolution will be and it will increase the time it take for user to load and play the video. V3 accepts flv(flash) and mp4 (h.264) video formats and there is a size limit of approximately 150mb for video uploads.
