brooks in Jing
on Feb 9th, 2009 |
I get quite a few questions about how to embed
Jing Pro content in a WordPress blog. Rather than typing out a long tutorial I’ve made a couple of screencasts that show you how to get up and running.
The first screencast shows you how to use
Screencast.com (free hosting that comes with Jing), Jing Pro and WordPress 2.7. We’ll cover the following:
Creating an “embed” button that returns embed code after your video has been uploaded to Screencast.com.
Creating a new blog post in WordPress 2.7.
Fixing the embed code returned by Screencast.com.
Changing the embed dimensions so that your video will fit nicely within your blog’s content column.

The second video walks through the process I personally use to embed content in my WordPress blog using the
Kimili Flash Embed plugin. It will cover the following:
Uploading video and thumbnail to web server manually with an FTP client.
Making sure the
Jing Pro video player is in the same directory on your web server as the video content you’re hosting. Using a previous post’s Kimili embed syntax.
It should be noted that I forgot to change the flashvars variable named “thumb” to use the correct url–you’ll want to make sure you do that.
