Embed Video From Youku

    How can I embed video from Youku (Chinese video platform)?

    So far I've tried using iframe and html but every time I update, the code I pasted in to the HTML editor just disappears. I've copied the code below:

    <embed src="http://player.youku.com/player.php/sid/XNDYwMTEzMTY0/v.swf" allowFullScreen="true" quality="high" width="480" height="400" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="always" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>

    <iframe height=498 width=510 frameborder=0 src="http://player.youku.com/embed/index.html?prefer=h5&vid=XNDYwMTEzMTY0"></iframe>

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Iframe code is stripped out here for security reasons. You might be able to convert the Flash code into a Gigya shortcode, which IS supported here: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/category/gigya/

    same problem here, I've tried all the code Youku provides but nothing shows up.

  4. As raincoaster suggested, you copy the embed code and turn it into a gigya shortcode. You take this:
    <embed src="http://player.youku.com/player.php/sid/XNDYwMTEzMTY0/v.swf" allowFullScreen="true" quality="high" width="480" height="400" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="always" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>
    and turn it to this:
    [gigya src="http://player.youku.com/player.php/sid/XNDYwMTEzMTY0/v.swf" allowFullScreen="true" quality="high" width="480" height="400" allowScriptAccess="always" ]

    Width and height can be changed (proportionally).
