  • If I simply post the url of a video it embeds it in a blog post ok – but is this considered not a good thing t odo and I should be using the iframe embed code?

    It’s perfectly OK to just paste in the video url and let WordPress do its thing.

    1. You may paste Youtube or Vimeo link into post but sometimes it does not convert into video corectly.
    2. You may use WordPress default shortcode: [embed width="500" height="400"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQL34ZiCNVA[/embed].
    3. If you simply want to embed iframe into post you can install iframe plugin and paste this shortcode into content: [iframe width="640" height="480" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/3261363"]
