WordPress 2.9: Re-Rewind!

I’ve just upgraded to WordPress 2.9 and one of the new features in this version is the ability to embed videos more easily. All you have to do is put the link to a site whose videos can be embed and that’s it! By default it automatically tries to embed any video that might recognise, such as youtube…etc. So, let’s try out by trying to embed my youtube videos and that way I get to promote them as well :).

First, let’s embed a bit of Florence And The Machine recorded live in Zurich last autumn:

Now, let’s try with my latest video which is also my first ever screencast! In this short video I explain how to monitor Infinispan cache instances using Jopr management plattform.

Finally, let’s embed one of the funniest videos I’ve ever seen.

Easy peasy :). Thanks WordPress!

p.s. I still haven’t figured out how to centre the embedded videos though, so if anyone knows how to do it, let me know :)

  1. What a plonker I am – been doing it by embedding the code myself when I could just have been doing this! Thanks!

    I know how to centre videos doing it my way, but not sure about using the embed function… if I work it out I’ll pop back and let you know.
