Channel 9 Embed


Channel 9 is a video service run by Microsoft. Channel 9 provides a way to embed videos
but is not yet on the WordPress embeds core list. This plugin allows you to simply paste
a URL to a Channel 9 video as you would with any other embed service into your post.
The video from Channel 9 will show at that location.

Channel 9 can be found at


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload the plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place the URL to any Channel 9 video in your posts


Can I change the view size of the video?

Not with this first release. To get the plugin out the door quickly I used the
default size Channel 9 provides for embeds.

Help! It is not working!

Sorry, I have noticed that sometimes embeds can by finicky. Leave a message in the
support forum with the URL you were attempting to use and any other information that
may be relevant.
