    HI! I am brand brand brand new to WordPress and blogging, so this may be a very ignorant question- but is there any way to embed a myspace video into my wordpress blog?

    I found the code to embed youtube videos [ youtube=…] but one video I want to post is only on myspace.
    ANY help would be great.
    Thanks!!!

    Afraid not with what we have here. TT was directing you to the current methods that we do have.

    It’s easy enough to move a Myspace video to YouTube; you’ll probably find, if you do a search, that it’s already there.

    Solution: MySpace Video in WordPress.

    [link deleted – drmike]

    maggiequin – this is the work-around that i put together. I refused to give in to Youtube, as MySpace video offers so much more.

    Works very well using a collection of methods. Im rubbish at code etc and i worked this out – so is simple and easy for dummies and beginers like me to allow posting myspace video into wordpress posts. Let me know if any questions – but, this works perfectly. Good luck.

    Note that’s for regular wordpress, not wordpress.com. Please do a search for embed as well as read the stickies at the head of the forums. Embeds are stripped here at wordpress.com for security concerns since this is a shared environment running on WordPress Multiuser, not regular wordpress.

    You need to be over at http://wordpress.org and I believe there’s no issue with MySpace videos on the regular wordpress platform.
