How to edit a video and put it on a website

The online tool Popcorn Maker from Mozilla, based on the framework popcorn.js, helps edit videos that you have made ​​yourself or taken on a sharing site. You can for example add text or images.

To put a video on a site, you have to use the embed or object tags. Youtube provides the full code with its videos and it uses both at the same time.

Example of Youtube code:

<object width="425" height="350">
<param value="http://www.youtube.com/v/asPLVNqEmyo" name="movie" />
<param value="transparent" name="wmode" />
<embed width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" 
   type="application/x-shockwave-flash" 
   src="http://www.youtube.com/v/asPLVNqEmyo">
</embed>
</object>

Example of code for Collegehumor:

<embed src="http://www.collegehumor.com/moogaloop/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=1767784" 
    quality="best" width="400" height="300" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
</embed>

The JavaScript code remains always unchanged, only the number is specific to the video. One can thus get the number on the host and use it with the code in example.

Using the YouTube API, you can customize the player and even use a search function to let it select himself which video to play, depending on the content of the article. See this article on a simplified means of automatically select Youtube videos.
