Can I embed private facebook videos?

No, only public videos can be embedded using the plugin.

You can right click any public videos on your fb page and click Show Video Url. A popup will be shown containing the video url, just copy the url and paste it to the shortcode’s url parameter.

The plugin provides options or parameters you can include in the ae-fb-embed shortcode. You can change the default width of 500px by including a width parameter in the shortcode. Example [ae-fb-embed url=”FB_VIDEO_URL” width=”450″]

Do you have an easier way to generate the facebook embed shortcode directly from the wordpress editor?

Yes, I created a shortcode generator button just above the wordpress editor to help everyone generate the shortcode needed to embed facebook videos. It also includes all available parameters you can use to customize your embeds.
