So how can you add audio and video code to your site and still be able to edit the content?There are several WordPress plug-ins available that will allow you to add embed code to your post or page.
Here are two I have recommended for clients in the past. These WordPress plug-ins are very easy to use and can work with any 3rd party service including AudioAcrobat, Limelight Networks, etc.
For iFrame embed code: iFrame
For iFrame, you enter shortcodes right into the editor’s content area.
Example: [iframe http://server/page.htm width height]
For Artiss Simple Embed Code, you use the custom fields found below the editing area to setup your embed code. You then use the phrase %CODEx% in your editor as a placeholder so it knows where to insert the embed code on the page or post. You can enter up to 20 embed codes per page/post (CODE1… CODE20)
For audio streaming: See this post about how you can use WP Audio Player to stream audio MP3 files.
- 7/11/2012. Changed iFrame plug-in from iFrame Embedder to [iframe] because iFrame Embedder has not been updated in over two years. The iFrame plug-in listed here is used on this site.
