To embed a video on a Laravel application, you can follow these steps:

  1. Save your video file in a publicly accessible location in your project (e.g. storage/public/videos).
  2. Use the video tag in your blade template to embed the video. You can use the asset helper function to generate the URL for the video file.
<video width="320" height="240" controls>
  <source src="{{ asset('videos/video.mp4') }}" type="video/mp4">
  Your browser does not support the video tag.

  1. Make sure to run php artisan storage:link in your terminal to create a symbolic link to the storage folder, so that the videos are accessible from the public folder.
  2. You can also use a package like Plyr or Video.js to customize the video player and add additional features to your embedded video.
  3. Remember to consider things like video format compatibility, responsiveness, and user experience when embedding videos in your Laravel application.
