The Best Wordpress Video Plugin

We all know that Wordpress is the best CMS and blogging platform on the market today.  No argument there.  However, it can sometimes be tricky to embed videos into your posts with the stock version of Wordpress. So what's the best video plugin to handle all of your video embed needs?  Viper's Video Quicktags is the absolute best.

I've been using this plugin for years now.  It is regularly updated and improved.  Each time Wordpress itself is updated, the plugin is always compatible.

The plugin is so good that the creator was just recently hired by Automatic.  (He's made many other plugins as well.)

If you would like to start embedding videos from various major video hosting providers, get Viper's plugin installed ASAP.

Video embed possibilities with this plugin include:

  • YouTube
  • Google Video
  • Daily Motion
  • Vimeo
  • Veoh
  • Viddler
  • Metacafe
  • Blip.tv
  • Flickr Video
  • Spike
  • MySpace Video
  • Generic FLV or Mov files (self hosted)
