      One of my blogs is about the music I listen to and the feelings I have about it… so I would like to be able to embed youtube links. I’ve used wordpress before, but the usual technique for embedding videos doesn’t seem to work here. Is that a feature we’re going to be able to have here on BlogJob?

      Amalthea, I’m in the same boat as you. I can post a clickable link to the movie trailers I want to share with everyone, but I can’t embed the video itself. Is the usual way of embedding to type a specific code used for easy embedding? I was going to check the website FAQs to see if that’s the thing I’m missing for video embeds unless you’ve learned that way doesn’t work.

      If you want to embed a youtube video all you have to do is paste the link to the video in the post and publish it. @jessica I have corrected your latest blog post to show the video as embedded.

      Yep, just posting the link works. I think if you want to use the embed code from the websites, you have to use the Embedly plugin, right, @Sheridan?

      @amalthea_hustles Not exactly. The embedly plugin allows you to easily embed things from other websites such as Justin.tv, SoundCloud and Flickr for example. Here’s a link that shows the different sites that embedly works with.

      What about embedding videos from a earn per view source?

      I finally figured out how to embed my video. It would not work right when I first tried.

      This is going to be so much fun when I finally learn how to do this! I’ll be able to make my own videos, and publish them! I can’t wait to get started!

      Does it work the same way for embedding a video on the forum here too?
      And how about when I update my wall?

      I believe it does. Other users have been able to post videos from Youtube successfully on forums here. 🙂

      One of these days I will show you some of my videos from my you tube channel.

      I have just embedded a you tube video about eyelash extensions in my new blog and it was easy. Just upload the video by adding the URL of the video you want to add to “Add Media”. That´s it.
