problems with embed codes

  1. Hi, I have some problems with embed codes: The Site PlayMyGame.com, for example, creates a code which can be embedded in my blogspot-blog, but not in wordpress! Why doesn´t work it, what am I doing wrong? This is the code:

    <div><embed src="http://playmygame.com/swf/player.swf?instancename=522n4af&hl=" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" quality="high" width="480" height="320" name="playmygame"></embed>
    Link: PlayMyGame</div>

    Another example: a slideshow from imageloop.com with this code:

    <div><embed src="http://www.imageloop.com/labLoop.swf?id=757d5ddf-8c9b-12c8-9000-0015c5fcf618&effectType=&c=01,01,02,01" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" quality="high" scale="noscale" salign="l" allowFullScreen="true" flashvars="configurationFile=http://www.imageloop.com/slideshow/757d5ddf-8c9b-12c8-9000-0015c5fcf618/config.xml&c=01,01,02,01" width="500" height="375"></embed><div style="width:500px;text-align:left;padding-top:3px;"> <img src="http://www.imageloop.com/_img/bt_myo_mk_male.gif" border="0"> <img src="http://www.imageloop.com/_img/bt_de_vap.gif" border="0"></div></div>

    I also can´t embed this gadget in my wordpress-blog - but why???

  2. You cannot use embed here - for security reasons.
    There might be workarounds, but others have to answer that, or do a search of the forum and faq.

  3. The problem in this case is the flash, which is not allowed here for security reasons.

  4. While you can't embed video into your blog, Vodpod can capture embedded video and post it to WordPress blogs. http://faq.wordpress.com/2008/05/26/using-vodpod-to-embed-video/ This might work for your slideshow in this particular instance.

    You can also link to video from you blog using the URL.

  5. all right, thanks for your comments!
