Adding video to a blogs.oregonstate.edu blog post is simple.  Just follow these instructions

  1. Use the Embed Video Plugin button in the WordPress editor – embed video button
  2. Paste the URL of the video into the “Insert video link URL”Embed Video Form
  3. If you do not want to display a link to the original video website, check the “Show video without link” box.  Otherwise, enter text for the link back to the original video website

When you’re done, you’ll have a video in your post, similar to the one inserted below.

At this time, the plug in only supports OSU Media Manager, YouTube, Google Video, Myspace Video and Dailymotion video.  Is there another video site that we should support?  Let us know by submitting a help ticket.
