Embedding videos to your blog
Embedding videos to your blog is a very nice way to drive home a point that millions of lines in blog entry fails to do.
Of course, there are several ways to do it in a wordpress blog. I will talk about all and which is the best. I will talk mostly about wordpress blog because that’s what I use. For other blogs I think it’s enough if you just paste the embed code in your entry. Or you could also do the second method mentioned for wordpress blogs.
WordPress has an add video option in the blog entry; just check the bar for the button and click on it. You get a window that has the tab from URL. Select that and type the URL in and voila! You have embedded the video to the entry. I got this method from the wordpress support.
I tried this, but it didn’t work for me. So I delved deeper into the support, hiding my frustration at the straight forward method not working as promised.
I found this site and that you can add videos to your blog easily and effectively.
What’s more: you can add videos from a variety of websites unlike in wordpress which supports only you tube, google video and two more (don’t remember which; go find out).
So, to embed videos in your blog, I suggest signing up at vodpod and start posting your blogs embedded with videos. They support major blogging platforms. You can confirm whether yours is supported at their site. I know wordpress and blogger are supported for sure. Have fun.
