TEDTalks Embedder

Description

Helps you to embed TED Talks videos on your self hosted WordPress simply using same shortcode used for WordPress.com

This plugin is not affiliated in any way with TED Conferences, LLC.

IMPORTANT: You can’t use this plugin and Jetpack’s shortcodes module at the same time. But you can use this plugin and Jetpack if you deactivate first the Jetpack’s shortcodes module.

Features

  • Easy and simple usage
  • Uses same shortcode used for WordPress.com
  • You can set default values (in Settings -> Media) width, height, and language of TED Talks.
  • Supports multiple TED Talks in the same post

Requirements

  • WordPress 3.8.1 or higher.
  • You can’t have Jetpack’s shortcodes module activated.

Usage

Follow the same instructions that you can read for WordPress.com

Some shortcodes examples:

  • [ted id=”210″ lang=”eng”]
  • [ted id=”http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/210″ lang=”eng”]
  • [ted id=210 lang=fr width=560 height=315]
  • [ted id=”210″]

If you want to set default width, height and language values for your TED Talks, go to Settings –> Media to set the values and omit values defined in the shortcode (last example).

By the way, this plugin was specially made for TEDxZaragoza ‘The Future of Happiness’, an independently organized TED event that was held on November 5, 2011 in Zaragoza (Spain).
