Muse does not support video.
The current workaround (to place video in a web page) is to use the "insert HTML..." function from Muse's "Object" menu. You can paste in the HTML needed to display video. This HTML can be found on video hosting sites like YouTube.
How comfortable are you with HTML? If not much, these third party video hosting sites (YouTube/Vimeo/etc) are your best option.
If you are comfortable with HTML and want to host video on your own server, take a look at FlowPlayer. You can embed FlowPlayer's code with Muse's insert HTML function. You'll also need to copy the FlowPlayer files to your server and convert your video to a web-friendly format. Details appear on the site:
Muse supports both the embedding of .swf videos on the Muse site directly, or streaming of video content from video hosting companies like AdobeTV, Vimeo and YouTube. You can use the embed/sharing code provided by these services to include video in your pages.
For step-by-step instructions on embedding a video please check out the tutorial here: Adding a lightbox feature that displays video hosted on a third-party server

Here are the steps to make a SWF video:
You'll need to buy Flash, if you don't already have a license.
Thanks, but can I convert a .mov file to .swf file? I am not familiar with the file type. I have already used Youtube to insert 'embed' code for a few videos and it works well. I do want to add a short video to my Muse site that does not use Youtube.
I am using ConverterLite at to convert the file formats. http://www.converterlite.com/ . I found that if I make a rectangle, select "Place", select the swf file, the curser loads with the image and in preview the video plays. Problem solved!
I follow the indtructions but could not get the youtube video to load in the light. I use other sliders but get the same result of seeing the video on the page.
So, it seems like the video only loads to the main page, not at the sepecific location of the light box.
With the container selected, I try both methods paste youtube embeded code directly into the selected areas of the container, and use objectwith insert HTML. The video didn't load into the widget BUT to the page.
are there any other methods? Or any other settings?
Appreciate any assistance. Thank you.
I have been struggling with the video placement in Muse.
I found that if you go to design viw of the page you want to ad video to, go to file place, select the video in the swf format. The video will load into your curser. Click the page to place the video abd resize it.
I made a sample site, placed two video loops on two different pages and so far its working, but we'se!

<param name="controller" value="true">
<embed src="example.m4v" type="video/mp4" width="320" height="256" controller="true" controls="true" autostart="false"/>
put the url of your video where the your video here leave the " "
change the width="320" height="256" to what ever dimensions your video is.
