WordPress now makes it possible to embed media like videos, images, text, and more from other websites into a post or page by just adding the URL to the media into your content area.
Provided the media is from an allowed site all you need to do is:
1. Add the URL of the media on its own line (not hyperlinked)
2. Click Publish
3. WordPress automatically converts the URL into an embed when the post is viewed.
This method can be used to embed media from any of the following sites:
- Flickr (videos and images)
- Google Video
- WordPress.tv (VideoPress-type videos)
