    I have a livestream that I want to embed on my wordpress blog but I can’t quite figure out why it won’t work.
    Twitch.tv gives me
    <iframe frameborder="0" scrolling="no" id="chat_embed" src="http://twitch.tv/chat/embed?channel=covalent&popout_chat=true" height="301" width="221"></iframe>
    to embed my stream but when I do this, everything before </iframe> is shown on the page. I’m not good with coding so I require some help.

    tl;dr
    Is is possible to embed Twitch.tv livestreams on WordPress?

    Thanks!

    Please see here for the codes that are restricted here at WordPress.com.

    We cam embed these:
    Blip.tv
    DailyMotion
    Flickr Video
    Google Video
    LiveVideo
    TED Talks
    Viddler
    Videolog
    Vimeo
    Vodpod
    YouTube

    The Vodpod Videos Widget is a great way to display image-based links to your favorite videos from around the web in your sidebar. It shows up to 3 of the videos you’ve most recently added to Vodpod.

    Oh I didn’t see the restricted codes section. Thanks! That makes sense! I’m going to try VodPod now :)

    I wish I could edit my previous post but it seems I cannot. A question popped into my head about VodPod. Will my viewers be able to watch my stream through WordPress while I am live or will it only be past recordings?

    I’m sorry but I don’t know. Perhaps another Volunteer or Staff can answer that for you.
