A very quick how-to on how to embed vimeo videos and youtube videos on wordpress.com – mainly for my own sakes and sanity. I keep doing this, and, each time, I forget how to do it, and I go google !. So here goes. It is a two step process for each though, but my grey cells have become greyer. What to do !
1. Make sure you are on visual mode
2a. Grab the URL from the youtube page (example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_KIqdS1SO0).
2b. Just type youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_KIqdS1SO0 within [ ]
2a. Grab the URL from vimeo (example: http://vimeo.com/4946315)
2b. Just type vimeo http://vimeo.com/4946315 within [ ]
3. You are done. When you publish, you will see the youtube video embedded in your post. Add text before and after the video for garnishing.
