Does WordPress have an easy way to insert video in a post? I am not referring to YouTube, Vimeo or other hosting sites, just video I upload myself on the server or through the Media manager. I have an mp4 video for example, and I'd like to have it play within the post, it's hosted on the same server as the website.
