Just a Test

Following a tweet from @abfromz


I thought I remembered something about how to, so I checked the Animoto site and sure enough there were some details about exporting to YouTube and then embedding the resulting video.


So that’s what @abfromz did… you can see her embedded video here.  It worked.

I decided that there must be an easier way and, after a few minutes searching found this “Embedding Animoto in WordPress!” – I followed the link to VodPod and dragged the bookmarklet to my Firefox bookmarks bar (also works with Google Chrome, but not IE8).

I went to my Animoto page, clicked the bookmarklet and…

vodpodchromeI was thinking of posting to my WordPress.com blog, but I’m using that for my 365 photos.  I knew that Edublogs was based on WordPress, so I filled in my details, added a bit of text and the video was embedded.  It took a few minutes for it to show up, but it worked.  You can see the embedded Animoto below…

…and that’s when I decided to make the test post into something more substantial.
