Embedding Videos In WordPress SUCKS!!

If you want to embed a Youtube video, or one from Google or Daily Motion, no problem. But for anything else, WordPress sucks beyond belief. Pathetic. It wasn’t always like that, but recent upgrades have made embedding videos from any other source nearly impossible.

WordPress does have a solution, at least they claim its a solution.  You can subscribe to vodpod, which allows you to capture videos on the internet, upload them and link to the uploaded video … I didn’t know that was legal for videos like, The Daily Show.

I’ll just say this.  I love WordPress.  They make it simple, quick and cheap to blog.  But the ability to embed videos from places The Daily Show (which has suddenly gotten pretty funny) is maddening.  And their proposed solution of having you upload videos may put you in legal jeopardy.

Hey WordPress, how about allowing us to embed videos again!!
