Distrify Embed

Description

Extends WordPress’s Embeds allowing bloggers to easily embed videos from Distrify. Just go to any Distrify film page or player and copy the URL. Paste that URL in any WordPress blog and it will automatically be converted to an embedded Distrify player. If you are logged in to distrify.com it will automatically add your affiliate tracking code to your embeds. Make sure you turn on Auto-embeds in your WP settings and also make sure that the URL is on its own line and not hyperlinked (clickable when viewing the post).

The plugin also extracts the still image from the film and saves it as the Featured Image for the post. This actually works for any Embed (not just Distrify) that you embed into your WordPress blog.

FAQ

What is Distrify?

Distrify is the revolution in online film distribution and marketing

Can I embed a Distrify player on a blog hosted on WordPress.COM?

Currently the “hosted” version of WordPress does not support many external embeds and won’t let you install themes or plugins. If you’re using the WordPress.com service, why not move your blog to a different host?
Or you can ask WordPress to support the Distrify player Embed. Contact WordPress here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

Where can I find more films to embed?
