    Hi, can you provide an example using a shortcode search?

    • Amit

      You can search video by clicking on Youtube icon button in editor. After selecting & inserting video you can see short code like following :

      [embed width="123" height="456"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ[/embed]

    This is one of the best time saving plugins for WordPress that I have came across. It makes it so easy to search for videos to add to any blog. Thanks.

    I am trying to change the size of the embeded player. What values do i put in the height and width. I’ve tried millimeters and inches.

    I’m obviously doing something wrong!

    Thx.

    • sajid

      Cameron, you don’t need to put any values(millimeters, inches). Just put width and height in numbers only.

    When I use this feature, the video a) does something to my post address so that it doesn’t show up as an individual post. Example: http://cadymcclain.com/1709/
    and
    b) doesn’t show the video OR a link to the video in the email blast
    Can you help? Thank you.
