Vodpod videos no longer available.
Anyone who has been reading my posts, knows I love WordPress–especially the free WordPress.com web version. However, you should know that certain types of media cannot be directly embedded on a WordPress.com post. WordPress will strip out all object and embed tags for security reasons. How do you get around this? There are several ways, but one tool that works very well is Vodpod (http://vodpod.com), a free video sharing service that will embed media directly to your WordPress.com post.
Following is a static tutorial, showing you how to use Vodpod to embed your VoiceThread to a new post on WordPress:
1. Navigate to your PUBLISHED VoiceThread
Click the little cogwheel at the upper left and select “Embed.”
2. Copy the Embed Code
A new dialog box will appear.
Copy the Embed code.
3. Navigate to Vodpod and sign in to your account.
Click “Add Video” button.
4. Paste the Embed code
Then, click “Continue.”
5. Confirm video
If this is the correct video, click “Yes, This is the Video.”
6. Click to save to your Vodpod collection
Add any tags as desired and any comments.
7. Click WordPress button to add to your Learning Log.
8. Post to your Learning Log
If this is the first time you have posted to your WordPress Learning Log, you will need to set up your blog.
Click the drop-down, “Select your blog,” and then select WordPress. Add your login info and you will be good to go!
Notice you can select to post as a draft, which will not publish your post, but make it available for editing in your WordPress dashboard.
In this example, I will Publish this post.
