I use blip.tv as my video host. They offer cross posting which works good, but I would like to embed videos in my blog like it is allready possible with google video or youtube. For now the HTML is not supported by the editor...Will it be possible to do that soon?
Need help? Check out our Support site, then
I don't use this service so I can't tell you anything but it appears to be covered in their FAQ under point 12. Says something about a "regular (non-Flash) cross-post template." Granted I don't have a clue as to what they are talking about but you may want to look into this. :)
Hope this helps,
Is there still no way to embed blip.tv video on a WordPress.com blog? I use them, too, and am quite interested.
Donncha says they haven't got a video player yet but they're working on it.
That video player is for uploaded videos.
Um, point #12 is still listed on their FAQ as the solution. Have you looked into it?
doh ... sorry
Not a problem. I never understood Donncha either. :)
blip.tv's FAQ point #12:
"If you're using the WordPress.com hosted blogging service, some cross-post templates won't work at the moment. In particular, embedded flash videos will not play on WordPress.com blogs. We are working with WordPress.com to resolve this issue and should have the problem solved shortly. In the mean time, please choose a regular (non-Flash) cross-post template."
I just sent an email to the people at blip. Just thought I'd check here, too. If blip responds I'll give their low-down here.
Turns out cross-posting from blip.tv is easy and works great, not broken like I thought.
The prompt response from Mike at blip:
You can do it easily through our cross-posting feature. Check out http://blip.tv/blogs/add/"
I tested it and videos of mine that I'd uploaded to blip worked fine while embedded on my blog in either flash or quicktime format.
I'm just amazed that you got a response from them. Seems like most of these startups, it's easier to pull teeth than to get a response to tech support.
The latest from Mike at blip.tv is that they'll be updating their FAQ -- as well as rolling out in the near future copy-pastable embed code specifically for WordPress.com blogs (this on top of their existing functional wordpress cross-post feature).
Great! Thanks for sharing this. :D
