As everyone begins to put their final audio and video projects onto their blogs I wanted to mention a few plugins and tricks that might be helpful. The first plugin is Podcasting. You can use this plugin to include audio (mp3 and mp4) and video (mov and mp4) in your posts. With the plugin enabled you’ll have a new panel in your Add New Post page called Podcasting
It will take a File URL which you can get when you upload the file by clicking the File URL button in the upload interface.
Just copy the file URL from the upload screen and paste it into the File URL box of the Podcasting panel and click Add. After you click Add the Podcasting panel will look like this
Clicking Send to editor will add the required text to your post for including the .mov, .mp4, or .mp3 file. If you used iMovie or Garageband to create your audio or video file it may have saved the file as a .m4v or .m4a. You can just change the extension to .mp4 and it should upload to your blog. You can adjust the settings for the Podcasting plugin by visiting the settings under the Settings panel.
If you are using an online video service like Youtube then you can enable the WordPress Video Plugin. This plugin will allow you to embed a video in your post using a short code like [service videoid]. You can reference the Short code instructions for examples on using the plugin for each of the supported services. You should also be able to use the Press This bookmarklet found under Tools to embed video and other files in your posts. You can find some good examples of using Press This at http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/automate-blogging-tasks-with-press-this-for-wordpress/.I hope this helps you complete your projects and if you have any problems just contact Instructional Technology.
