Embedding Video December 15, 2009

Posted by Ben Smith in Uncategorized.

In this session we looked at the different video sharing sites and how to embed a video we want to use. The most popular site is Youtube, but there is also others such as Vimeo and Dailymotion. The purpose of an embed code is to tell the browser how to show the video.

How to Embed a Video

1. Open a new tab, search for a video on Vimeo

2. Copy the embed code

3. Go back to the post window

4. Change to HTML mode

5. Paste the code into the window, delete vimeo at the end of the bracket.

Changing the size – alter the height and width figures at both the beginning and the end of the code.
