So I was working on a client’s blog recently and was having the most frustrating time trying to embed video onto the site. I recall also having the same trouble on my Film Tops blog. I went to WordPress’s Plugins page and low and behold, I found a solution with a simple plugin.
EasyTube is a WordPress plugin that allows you to embed a YouTube or Google Video in your blog post without WordPress assigning p tags where they don’t belong making your published posts and those below them screwy looking. Anyway, the cool thing about EasyTube is that the code you have to put in your post is soooooo simple: [youtube: URL] or [googlevideo:URL], that’s it! “URL” should be replaced with the actual URL where the YouTube or Google Video is found. You can also assign width and height: [googlevideo:URL width height] Fabulous, ain’t it!
