In a recent post, I had issues embedding a CNN video clip into the body of the post. I’ve been able to embed YouTube & Vimeo clip rather easily. So I did a lot of digging and found a page in which the author was able to embed video from CNN!! I asked him to post the html of the link and he provided it to me as:
I then attempted to just replace my url from the link that CNN gives you into the formula above…but that didn’t work (by the way, there is a space after “cnnvideo” and the rest of the code). Then I realized, that the single quotes before and after the url should be double quotes. I also noticed that CNN’s link that they give you, doesn’t have the “www” in the url. Making these changes to the code, it now works!! CNN clips are viewable in WordPress!!!
Case in point…here you go!!
