Embedded YouTube Video

Posted by guesto on February 21, 2007

How to say “Freddie Ljungberg in Swedish”

Here is a video taken at about 5am in Gothenburg city centre. Interesting how such a simple clip of, well, nothing really can be my most viewed video – beating The Kooks, The Arctic Monkeys and Get Cape! That must be either because it has a “how to..” title – or more likely because it is tagged with the words “Swedish” and “Girls”…

This done as a test for embedding YouTube videos straight into the page.

It seems that it is not possible to embed in the usual fashion because the system disables Javascript when running on WordPress.com like this is. (I simply can’t be arsed to setup hosting it myself.) However it is possible to embed YouTube videos using WordPress’s custom mark-up. See http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/07/29/how-do-i-post-a-youtube-video/ for more info.
