I'm wondering if there's a way to embed a video I've uploaded to my Ning network within a text box as I would a YouTube video. I'd like it to play within the text box rather than linking to a separate video page. I've tried but can't find an embed code for the video. Am I missing something obvious or am I hoping for the impossible?
It isn't impossible, but it's probably not for the faint of heart.

It's a decent all-around solution for embedding your own video. That being said - you might not be able to host your own flash player on ning (I dont know), so you might have to find one hosted somewhere else.
Formatting videos isn't always super easy either, the solution I linked requires an mp4, an ogg, and a flv file for complete browser support. You could probably get away with just the mp4 and the ogg to cover most browsers.
Thanks, Ron. Given the complexity, we'll likely go with an alternative solution.
I'm having the same problem. I'm sure that I used to be able to do it... I think
