My home page needs to be a promotional video to be embedded. I thought to create a static block which will contain the video file and I just add that block to the content by updating the layout in admin side.
But the problem is that I cann't upload a video file through wysiwyg editor. Sometime it says "Disallowed Type" . Sometimes it simply don't do anything while uploading file.
Kindly help me. Thanks.

You have to allow a new file extension like this in your config.xml:


Change or add the Extension in the "allow" node. Make sure, that your Server is configured to Upload bigger files

goto youtube.com open which video you want then bottom of video three option is there. so you click Embed after that it will show like this

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dUgra62yOBw?list=PLDxywfIfVjJrva58P_oXhG8zUQAAsOayp" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Then use this in your static block or cms page

  • I have already done that and it works fine. But I want to upload from backend admin section, i.e. I want to create a CMS static block containing a video. I am having problem uploading video through wysiwyg editor. Commented Oct 4, 2015 at 14:01
