Many publishers are embedding videos on their blogs from various sources, including YouTube, Brightcove, DailyMotion, Blip.TV, and others.
One consistent piece of feedback we’ve received from publishers, is that it can be difficult and time consuming to remember the exact steps that each video site requires to embed a video — as they all have slightly different methods and formats.
To make this video embedding process easier a company by the name of Vodpod introduced a “Post to WordPress” browser tool that works with hundreds of video sites and makes it easy to grab a video and publish it to your WordPress blog.
With support for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Camino – the Vodpod tool works within your browser and is compatible with both WordPress.com and self-installed WordPress.
From the Vodpod help page:
When you see a video you want to post to your blog, just click the WordPress logo button. It should automatically grab the embed code (this works for sites like YouTube and 100s of other video sharing sites).
