How to Embed You Tube Videos

Embedding You Tube videos is second nature to some geeks, but other people have a difficult time figuring out how they canput their videos on their blogs or websites.

YouTube can do this automatically for you. After you log into your account, go to the Video Posting Settings option in your account. From there you can tell YouTube to automatically post new videos to your blog. Currently this feature only supports Blogger, LiveJournal, Friendster, WordPress, and Piczo.

If your blogging platform isn’t supported by YouTube, you can always manually insert your videos into a blog post. All you have to do is grab what’s known as the embed code from your video page. You can copy that code and paste it into your blog entries. A word of warning: if your blogging platform uses a rich text editor (such as WordPress), you’ll have to insert your embed code directly into the HTML.
