For WordPress users: This plugin has made it so much easier for me to embed video on my blog. The visual editor in WordPress automatically maintains html validation, and messes with the embed coding used by YouTube and Google video. Unfortunately WordPress enters the Visual editor by default. Prior to this plugin I had to disable the Visual Editor in my blog profile (wp-admin/profile.php) if I wanted to embed a YouTube or Google video.
I’ve added the simple code used by the plugin to my wp-admin/post-new.php page code above the php, to make it easy to cut and paste when needed. Find the usage code on the Video Embedder options page.
Video Embedder is a plugin for WordPress that makes it easy to embed movies from various sources, such as YouTube and Google Video. The benefit with this plugin is that you donâ€™t have to paste some strange video embed code into your WordPress post, all you need is the ID of the video. As a bonus none of the videos embedded with Video Embedder will break your precious validated WordPress based site, all of the movies will show up nice and clean.
Another advantage is that you can manage the settings for all of your embedded movies from the WordPress settings for Video Embedder, the properties for all the movies will be updated instantly as soon as you save the settings.
