WordPress Embed Button for Images / Videos

    Hi,

    I just wondered if there is a kind of embed button solution for WordPress. If I got images and video locally hosted in my blog, and there would be a function like on Youtube or better like on Photojojo (photojojo com /store on product pages) - then I guess non-techy people would be likely to share like they quick-share a Youtube video... if it's made in a non disruptive style like in the mentioned sample from jojo with mouse-over...
    so my idea: a "Embed Button" quick solution for WordPress...

    You mean to embed your content on other people's sites?

    Most of us spend a lot of time and effort making that NOT possible, because of how much bandwidth that takes up.

    But that is most definitely plugin land.

    Yes, for example if I got a site where I post images or own videos - like youtube - and people could easily spread this content -if I want to- but with a link to the original content.
    Might be a plugin case ok, but I use e.g. the youtube embedding function quite often, so just press like a hover effect and then pop-ups a embedding code...
    I understand the aspect of NOT wanting to let others to embed, but see youtube - there are thousands of embeddings that refer to the original source, because they give an easy embedding function...

    Actually I was a bit impressed by the sample at the jojo site (see first post) where you could embed product images - you see a nice gadget image and you might just copy paste in a own blogpost, but for some non-techies this easy embedding function might be useful.
    But you are right, might not be an idea for wordpress by default function

    YouTube also has a gazillion servers and a network to back it up. You probably do not :)
