I love Newwcast but I have one concern: How easy or hard is it to embed a video? I take it I can use one of the spots below for a video, but obviously I need to ask before I buy.July 24, 2010 at 6:02 am #30601July 24, 2010 at 6:05 am #30602
Adding a video is really easy steve.. there are several great plug-ins to add videos from YouTube, Vimeo and Google. Some plug-ins even make it easy to upload your own videos. After installing wordpress just head over to the plug-ins section and search.

There’s an offical plugin source: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins where you can find everything you’re searching for.
i.e. for embedding youtube videos: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/smart-youtube/

If you choose not to use a plugin, you can grab the embed code from sites like http://www.youtube.com/ which can be pasted into the HTML view when creating / editing a post.
Useful video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IzWa1o3K1Q
Example of embed code:
<object width=”640″ height=”385″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/8IzWa1o3K1Q&hl=en_US&fs=1″></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/8IzWa1o3K1Q&hl=en_US&fs=1″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”640″ height=”385″></embed></object>July 24, 2010 at 6:05 pm #30605
That’s by far the best/quickest way to embed videos from youtube. I’m only afraid of an validation error (W3C).
The plugin page http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/smart-youtube/ claims that the “original” code to embed videos isn’t a xHTML valid code.

James – thanks for that straight-forward answer. Then, as shown on the Avisio demo, does that mean the areas numbered 1 to 4 are posts and that’s where the front page content for those 4 areas would be created?July 24, 2010 at 7:59 pm #30607
The 4 areas on the homepage are Pages not posts and can be selected through the theme options panel.
You should select the smaller size video if you intend to use the videos on the front page. The video clearly shows where the options for your embed code are, but if you need help let me know.
