video embed through API

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a site that's using a background video on the home page. I've run into a problem though. I created a file field to hold the video and call it in with the following:

<video class="video-background" loop no-controls autoplay src="<?php echo $hp->video->url;?>" poster=""></video>

This doesn't work and throws this error: HTTP load failed with status 403. BUT when I upload the video to a sub-directory in Templates and use this code:

<video class="video-background" loop no-controls autoplay src="<?php echo $config->urls->templates?>css/images/WB5.m4v" poster=""></video>

It works. I expect it's an htaccess thing but I can't understand why since any other file works fine why is video different and what do I need to do to get around it?

Try to use $hp->video->httpUrl.
