Embedding Videos in WordPress

Can’t get much easier than this. The Extreme Video Plugin enables support for pretty much any video type you want to embed. It’s very easy to install, save the php file from the above site, upload it to your WordPress plugins folder, rename it as it says. Activate it in the WordPress Admin Plugins section. Then in your posts you can just embed some simple tags.

Interesting, have to look into that.
I wanted to imbed some videos of my 3D stuff on my blog, but didn’t want to post it on youtube or anything, just need something to load the mov I guess, this should work.

Using the plugin you may be able to put in a local url to a file and it might work. Not tried it though.

However you could use the WordPress embed tags instead of installing the plugin. This thread has some info on what to do that could be of use:

Ah yeah, thought there must be something like that, thanks. =)
I’ll post stuff on youtube or such eventually, once I’ve made something I’m satisfied with. =O

Well I’d avoid posting on YouTube, the licencing agreements are pretty nasty. I remember reading that they assume rights over whatever is submitted and can distribute it in any form they like without contacting the author. If you have the space, host it yourself :)

Boing Boing had some coverage of it a couple of months back:

Yeah, that’s what I was always worried about, but using a service like youtube or google video and such give you alot more visibility (and ultimately, being a wannabe artist, that’s what I’m looking for =D).
As long as I just spam my name and url all over whatever I’m posting, guess it should be ok…
