Video Display?


Can you help me with video display? I would like to insert video the same way I can now insert an image. Video that is embeded from other sites (like YouTube) works great as you can see on this page:

But I would like to embed videos that are saved on my server onto page that using html5 video or some other way. I tried using embed media dialog but it doesn't work (empties the src and href tags).

Here is the code I inserted to embed media dialog: 

<video width="400" controls>
  <source src="mov_bbb.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  <source src="mov_bbb.ogg" type="video/ogg">
  Your browser does not support HTML5 video.

<a href="" target="_blank">Big Buck Bunny</a>.

Here is what is saved:

<div class="media_embed">
<p height="" width="">Your browser does not support HTML5 video.</p>
<p height="" width="">Video courtesy of <a href="" target="_blank">Big Buck Bunny</a>.</p>

I saw an earlier post with direction to use Mediafront so I installed and tried that, but that doesn't seem to work. 

Can you see what is going wrong or have any advice?

Thank you.

You can please click onto "Switch to plain text editor" then paste html.

Note: While editing, wyswyg often make some tags html missed so we think you need to patste html again.
