Posting Videos with Embed Tags to WordPress Blogs

November 6, 2007 22 By Tad Reeves

In my last post, I was attempting to insert two videos into my post from the Way to Happiness website. However, I was thwarted by the built-in filter that WordPress has on <embed> tags.  So, the videos were stripped. 

They posted just fine to my Blogger blog, however.

Anyone know of a way around this?  I know there are custom wordpress tags for YouTube videos, specifically, but not just for plain-old <embed> type videos, which are strewn over all sorts of other video-sharing sites on the net.
