Embedded videos in themes (6 posts)

    In the Theme Development Checklist there is a post (http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development_Checklist#Embedded_video) where video is to be embedded with the following code:

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCXlCkY4Y5g]
    
    [googlevideo=http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-184752788325410734]

    ...which doesn't work in my themes.

    I have searched on the forums and in the codex, but I can't figure out how to enable this.

    Any help?

    I'm pretty sure that you can't currently use those shortcodes without the appropriate plugin.

    Oh? Then it's strange that it's included in the checklist ;)

  4. The shortcode you listed doesn't show up on that page.

    No, it's part of the data you import for the test. It creates a post with that code in it.

    I have a vague memory of these shortcodes being discussed as part of 2.9 but I could be wrong...
