What is vEmbed (Video Embed)?
vEmbed is an automatic video embed library for WordPress sites that supports over 20+ popular video sharing sites. It’s a tool that would aid you when you want to embed videos in your post by just pasting its video URL without needing to copy & paste its embed code. It saves you the time for hunting its embed code!
How does it work?
A simple video URL will be converted into a video embed-ready code.
Into embed-ready code:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/RB-RcX5DS5A" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
By default, WordPress supports only 10 video providers:
- Funny Or Die
With vEmbed plugin installed, there are over 19 video providers more and that is a total of 29 video providers supported! You can easily vlog (video blog) without any interruption finding the video embed code for the video URLs you want to be embedded in your post.
- Live Leak
