4 New Ways to Embed Video

We’ve noticed that video embedding is mighty popular among WordPress.com bloggers. For example, there are over 3,000 YouTube videos embedded into new blog posts around here every day!

To add to the fun, we’ve added support for 4 additional video players:

DailyMotion: There was a petition for us to add DailyMotion support, so we got right on it. Embedding instructions are here, you can also post to your WordPress.com blog directly from the DailyMotion player by using their “blog this video” feature.

SplashCast: Splashcast is a brand new player that lets you combine video, music, photos and text. Embedding instructions are here, posting from their site directly to your blog is coming soon.

LiveVideo: LiveVideo is a rapidly growing video sharing site and we now support embedding of their player, as well as posting to your wp.com blog from their player.

PodTech: Last but not least, PodTech offers videos and podcasts on all kinds of tech topics. Embedding instructions are here.

    Um, I don’t understand why this is supposed to be such great news. With Blogger, can’t you pretty much embed any video from any site? I’m just sayin’…
