    Another Wordpress Query
    Hey guys,

    Just a quick question about posting videos into your posts on wordpress.
    I am having no trouble setting up links to youtube vidoes relevant to what I am posting about but i would prefer it if the video would appear in the post as opposed to just a hyperlink.
    Must I download the video to my computer and upload it for this to happen??

    Cheers

    Just copy the code from you tube that start is in the box for embed video.

    Go to your post in wordpress.

    Click on the "html" tab (instead of "visual")

    You will then see your post is now in html format

    Just paste the code where you want the video to appear.

    Save.

    ladidah is right, that will work... but, I'm going to go one better.

    Starting with WordPress 2.9, you no longer need to deal with the embed code for your posts. Instead, just paste the URL for the video on to it's own line in your post. WordPress automatically interprets it and embeds the video for you automatically. The best part, it works for youtube, vimeo, hulu, viddler and a bunch others.

    You can read more about it here:
