    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.

    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.

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

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

    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 https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/embedding-archiveorg-movies?replies=5#post-703794 and ask Panos for help.

    Can’t be done – it’s not plain flash code, it includes code for plugins.
