Google Video

When it comes to free video hosting, apparently YouTube isn’t the only kid on the block. Google Video support is here! You didn’t think we would deny you the pleasure of posting videos like this, did you?

This is the code that displays that video (spaces added to force word wrap):

[googlevideo=http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?videoUrl=
http%3A%2F%2Fvp.video.google.com%2Fvideodownload%3Fversion%3D0%
26secureurl%3DjQAAAI2D-oeokHvEtP4vUMF6XpEPkLnk1CzCPWh_ceWkgqteI

100951844857&playerMode=embedded]

You’ll find that long URL in the HTML code provided by Google Video’s “Put on site” feature. To extract the URL, remove everything from <embed to src=" and everything after the next quotation mark (").

Sorry this is harder than the Youtube integration, but Google makes things a little tricky. Enjoy!

    I appreciate this feature, and thanks, WP..
    but,..

    I hope you introduce some more important features that may be helpful to a wider level of audience. Not all people like videos on their blogs. A more general feature would be nicer.

    Anyways,
    thanks a lot

    Hi! I thought I’d commented this already, but it seems I haven’t. Could we please have support for http://dailymotion.com/ too? It’s a service similar to YouTube (and imho, nicer: no watermarking, less clutter).

    Having the choice of Google Video is already great, but I’d really love Daily Motion support :-)

    hey, all these hype and positive feedback seem so fake to me.

    get real guys. blogger.com don’t even have all thesehassle of modifying HTML codes, and you guys applause when wordpress.com give you all these limitations?

    seriously, get real.

    I don’t know if it’s google’s problem or mine, but I can’t get it to work. They player shows up, but no video. I think it’s a great feature, just spell it out for us noobs a little more. ;)
    Thanks!

    It would be cool if these sort of clever features were on the editor window, sort of like click here and it will ask you for the URL and then insert the code for you, just a reminder of the extra features that are available for new users who may not have spotted this news post and the previous YouTube one :)

    This is nice to support another video format, but when I tried to embed youtube.com videos in my posts, it made the loading of my blog really slow for me (and I am on DSL) — so I post links out to my videos.

    Still waiting on my customizable header — is that so much to ask? All I wanna do is swap a picture for a boring plain solid color header.
