Hmm… Embedding Video Just Became A Lot Easier

One of the annoyances I’ve had with blogging has been getting video embedded properly.  For the longest time I couldn’t get it to work at all.  There was a trick to it, and it took me a while to get it figured out.  Even when I did, it was still a pain in the ass.  Way too complicated for what it needed to be.

I installed the Jetpack WordPress plugin last week, and one of the things that it includes is an easy way to embed video.  Just copy and paste the URL link from your browser address bar, and voila!  That’s it!  That’s the way it should have been all along.  No more having to embed all the code and whatever else seemed to be needed.  It’s incredibly simple now… or so this test post seems to lead me to believe…
