I needed a *quick* and *simple* method to embed YouTube videos into my posts and wrote a small plugin to do just that. This way you do not need to find the embed code from YouTube or do anything special. You just copy the URI of the YouTube video and paste it into the body of your post. This has been tested with 2.3.x and 2.2.x and it works on both. I can add other video and media embed ability if there is request or demand.
Installation is simple. Download the zip file, unzip, copy to your wp-content/plugins directory and enable. Then test by copying and pasting a YouTube URI into a post and publishing it. Thats it!
Download Plugin: Embedify 1.02 (update)
Please leave comments, feedback and requests.
Please do not do anything with the URI. If you align it or make a clickable link out of it, the plugin will break. Expect a fix for that soon. Fixed. Still some bugs with Internationalization, but those will wait till I get more information.
