Tech Note: New-Style Video Embedding in LGF Pages

Now with IFRAMEs
LGF • Views: 31,703

Both YouTube and Vimeo recently switched their video embedding code to a new style that allows videos to play on all kinds of devices, including mobile devices that don’t have Flash installed (like the iPhone).

Today I added the new IFRAME code to the types of video embedding code supported by LGF Pages; so you can now post any video from YouTube or Vimeo using their new code and it will work fine and be visible on everybody’s phone. At least that’s the theory.

If you’re not sure how to go about posting a video inside an LGF Page, here’s an LGF article explaining the process: Tech Note: LGF Pages Now Allows Video Embedding from Any Site.

Note: LGF Pages still doesn’t support video embedding via Javascript, and probably won’t, because I don’t like to use Javascript code from other sites if not absolutely necessary.

Create a PageThis is the LGF Pages posting bookmarklet. To use it, drag this button to your browser's bookmark bar, and title it 'LGF Pages' (or whatever you like). Then browse to a site you want to post, select some text on the page to use for a quote, click the bookmarklet, and the Pages posting window will appear with the title, text, and any embedded video or audio files already filled in, ready to go.
Or... you can just click this button to open the Pages posting window right away.
