Embedding videos in a Website has never been easier, thanks to WordPress and its Plugins. These themes and plugin removes the need to copy and paste “embed” code from the different video sharing sites into your posts’ body. Instead, you click the icon for a specific video site, for example, YouTube. Then all you need to provide is the URL to the video. For example, Viper’s Video Quicktag WordPress Plugin goes to the URL and extracts the embed code automatically.
Adding Video to your posts can really dress up the content. By using Video, you give your content a dimension that
you can’t express in plain text. Through visual imagery, you can call attention to your post and add depth to it.
The same goes for adding any other media files to your posts and blog, e.g, Image, and Audio. Video lets you provide entertainment through moving, talking (or singing!) streaming video. Audio files let you talk to your visitors and add a personal touch. Many bloggers use video and audio to report news and to broadcast Internet radio and television shows. The possibilities are endless!
