Since version 2.9, WordPress has featured native easy embeds. However this plugin offers more customization than allowed without the plugin (player colors, etc.). It will work fine side by side with the new code and you can opt to use either embed method.
The plan for this plugin is to recode it from scratch to instead build upon the new embed API and allow for more customization. The new plugin will be backwards compatible and keep your current videos working.
Tired of copying and pasting the embed HTML from sites like YouTube? Then this plugin is for you.
Just simply click one of the new buttons that this plugin adds to the write screen (rich editor included) and then paste the URL that the video is located at into the prompt box — easy as that. You can fully configure how the videos are displayed (width, height, colors, alignment on the page) and much more. Your site will even stay (X)HTML valid unlike with the code provided by most video sites.
Currently supports these video sites:
- YouTube (including playlists)
- Google Video
- Flickr videos
As well as these file types:
- Flash Video Files (FLV) — some manual installation required, see this post for details
- QuickTime (MOV, etc.)
- Generic video files (AVI, MPEG, WMV, etc.)
You can also use the
[flash] shortcode to Flash-based video from any website (see Help section after installing for details).
