    Okay, can someone please give me specific instructions for adding a Ustream live stream to my blog (preferably the sidebar)?
    Isn’t there a WordPress shortcode for Ustream? I think the format is [ ustream 123456789.usv]
    If that is the correct format, could you tell me where I find that channel id number?
    Thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is unitedtechguys.wordpress.com.

    Here’s the link to support documentation for you to bookmark http://en.support.wordpress.com/
    Results of a search for “ustreamtv” did not turn up anything useful.

    These entries may or may not be of interest to you http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/ and http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/vodpod/

    Hopefully, another volunteer will have a definitive answer for you.
    Best wishes.

    I forgot to give you the link to all the shortcode links above – ustreamtv is not included.

    Thank you.
    I tried Vodpod, but I’m not getting anything from that either.

    When you say you aren’t getting anything from vodpod it makes me wonder if you know that all shortcodes must be entered into the HTML editor and not the Visual editor.

    It gave me a flash player box with nothing in it when I put it on a page. I just got the shortcode itself when I put it in the sidebar.
    And shortcodes don’t have to be put in the HTML editor, actually. For example, if you use the insert video button in a post and add a YouTube URL, it puts the shortcode right there in the visual editor.

    I have NEVER found a way to embed Ustream or Qik into a WP.com blog. And I used to work for a livestreaming organization and even asked staff for help. As far as i know it’s not possible.

    If Vodpod’s button cannot do it, I don’t think it’s possible.

    Hello! This is the wordpress.COM forum. please do not post wordpress.ORG stuff into it as it only confuses members. WordPress.com blogs do not have FP access and they do not have plugins!

    Read this please > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    I also note that the blog linked to your username is not a wordpress.COM blog. You are posting into the wrong forum. Please post only to this one > http://wordpress.org

    Argghh! I meant to type – WordPress.com blogs do not have FTP access and they do not have plugins!
