embedding archive.org movies

  1. Is there a way to embed an archive.org movie on a blog post?
    Archive.org offers an embed fragment, but the wp blog editor won't accept it.
    Here's an url to one of their movies if you to go check it out:
    http://www.archive.org/details/Detour

    The blog I need help with is enjoyingcreating.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi. Please copy and paste the entire code you tried to insert. For the purpose of these forums only, please insert the code between backticks ( ` ) (not apostrophes!) otherwise we won't be able to see the code.

  4. I suggest you try using a gigya shortcode. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/07/22/gigya-shortcode-3-widgets/

  5. I can't figure out how to get the short code to work.
    Thank you both for trying to help me.

  6. I would go here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/07/22/gigya-shortcode-3-widgets/ and provide a link to this forum thread in a comments box on that post http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/embedding-archiveorg-movies?replies=5#post-703794 and ask Panos for help.

  7. Can't be done - it's not plain flash code, it includes code for plugins.

  8. @Panos,
    Good evening and thanks for posting a definitive answer.

  9. ~~

  10. Thanks for trying to help. I appreciate it.
