Problem Description:

Obox themes support two ways of embedding videos for use with the Featured Video display and widgets in our themes: Embed Codes and oEmbed.

VideoPress is WordPress.com’s free video hosting service that allows you to easily host videos using their player. This is a good option if you aren’t able to convert your videos into multiple formats for self-hosting, or don’t have the bandwidth, but VideoPress does not currently support oEmbed.

Answer:

  1. Pull up your video on your VideoPress page and click the Share link at the top
  2. Click the Copy HTML button under Embed on a Webpage. That will give you an embed code like this:
    <object width="400" height="224" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="src" value="http://s0.videopress.com/player.swf?v=1.03" /><param name="wmode" value="direct" /><param name="seamlesstabbing" value="true" /><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="overstretch" value="true" /><param name="flashvars" value="guid=OO4thna8&amp;isDynamicSeeking=true" /><embed width="400" height="224" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://s0.videopress.com/player.swf?v=1.03" wmode="direct" seamlesstabbing="true" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" overstretch="true" flashvars="guid=OO4thna8&amp;isDynamicSeeking=true" /></object>
  3. Copy that into the Embed Code field on the Options panel in the post editor.
