Videos in Sidebar

  1. Hi there,

    Now that vodpod has seemingly disappeared, is there a way of displaying videos in the sidebar at all? YouTube or other videos.

    Many thanks in advance,

    The blog I need help with is tobyelliott.com.

  2. You can insert any YouTube video by pasting the Youtube shortcode in a text widget:
    [youtube=VIDEO URL HERE&w=NNN]

    Replace NNN with the width that's right for your sidebar - see here:

    You can also insert any video that provides a flash embed code, by turning that code into a gigya shortcode. See here:
