Have you tried using the Video module. You can create field type video insted of type file and then upload and render with the player you have configured.

    Try going to Home » Administration » Configuration » Media » Video » Players and select JWplayer for extensions *.mp4, also you can try the flowplayer module - if so select the flowplayer player for *.mp4 and give it a try. Sep 11, 2013 at 11:21

  • I have gone through the formats and changed the player to FLV player and then there is a sub category called jwplayer. But Still the video did not appeared. I think something wrong with jwplayer. IS there any perfect Documentation for JwPlayer. I think there is no stable version for Drupal7

Have you tried setting the display to "rendered File" in the display settings for the content type? If uploading as a file, might work for you.Screenshot of video content type display settings

  • There are only two options Video Player and Video Video Thumbnail, nothing like rendered File @Daniel

  • OK, got ya, sorry, I think "Rendered File" requires the Media Module in order to show up as an option. Maybe install that, and check if it helps. I have had good luck just utilizing that module for video work. Just create a field with "field type: file", then under display, rendered file. If you don't want to go that route, what does the rendered source code for your blank video look like (that you posted above)? Sep 12, 2013 at 0:03
  • Hi @Daniel i tried using Media Module. No luck. Yes i have selected rendered file option, also experimented with view mode to Original but no use. Displaying same old link. Do we need any libraries or plugin to make the video play?
