Embed LiveVideo into blog

Embedding LiveVideo into a blog

Previously, if you want a video in your blog post (it is also possible to put it in the sidebar), you will have to upload it to Youtube or Google Video, get the script and paste the script into the post editor window. However, it is not so simple as it sounds because the scripts you get are meant to be displayed with a certain size (width and length) and the width of your main column (or sidebar) may not be able to accommodate the width of the video. It could also be your main width is so wide that you may want the video to occupy the whole width. Either way, you will have to edit the script. For a list of posts related to video, refer to Video and blogs. This post, LiveVideo - testing how to embed video uploaded to LiveVideo, will show how to edit the script so that the video fits into the post (main column) or sidebar without distortion. There is another post that shows how to do that for Youtube video (scripts for embedding Youtube video involves editing 4 items, 2 for width and 2 for height). Will appreciate you help alert me as to which one by leaving a comment as I have no time to check.

    Hello again Peter Chen.

    I just created a new blogger site and still working & changing on the template's codes before re-posting my posts from my previous blogger.

    Anyway, I've searched in Google that there's a lot of free c-box services that you can put to your webpage or blogger.

    1) What's a c-box?

    2) Can you list to me the best free c-box service(s)in terms of interface and user-friendliness and what do you think?

    So besides c-box, there are also free web forums available.

    1) Can you list me the best free web forum that you know?

    Thanks and I do hope you keep on passing information to this site, especially about add-ons and accessories for blogging.

    How to make my rankings improve. Please advise..

  3. Is there a way to label posts in blogger, but have them not show up in the post on the blog site?

    Thanks! Thanks for the detailed description for all the beginners.

  5. Hi,

    great blog.

    I want to re-cycle some old posts and post some as new blogs. Do you know of any neat way of doing this?



  6. Hi Filem Noir Lover,

    From your spelling of film (filem), you sound like a Malaysian?

    1) What's a c-box?

    I have never heard of a c-box but knows many uses chat box where visitors can just leave "chats", just like comments. This website:

    seemed to confirmed it, and if so, there are lots of choices. I don't know which is the best one, but I know which one I will never install, that is one from Bravenet. Many bloggers says installing anything from Bravenet cause your blog to display pop-ups. I vaguely remember a bad experience once, but cannot tell for sure, so treat the above as rumor.

    Best web forum? Really, what do you mean by web forum? If what you mean is a forum on the Web, there are lots of them, and on all kind of topics. Which one is the best? Depend on what topic. If you are talking about Blogger, then I would say the best is the Google Blogger Help group. Type or copy-paste that into the search box above. I just tried it, and the first result is that official Blogger Help group in which real Blogger Employees, the main one of which is Gatsby. They are assisted by Blog*Stars like me, but recently, I had not been participating actively because of too much work, plus I have to take care of comments in my own blogs.

  8. Hi Bragadeesh,

    Please don't take offence at some of my comments as that was a kind of reflex reaction when I read "writing a technical blogging page" as of my posts were blatantly copied without acknowledgement nor active link back given. I apologize if my careless remarks may have hurt your feelings.

    (floods in England, polar ice and ice caps at moutain peaks melting, I think more severe and frequent hurricanes in US, rain when it is supposed to be a dry season in my country, someone from Queensland recently contacted me if I noticed the weather changing. I replied when I was young I had to sleep under the blanket, but now I sleep topless. If I remembered, he said it is freezing in tropical Queensland and now he has to sleep under a blanket. Please folks, take good care of our one and only Spaceship Earth which have no lifeboat. It may not affect us severely now, but it has every chance of severely affecting our future generations. Then they will have lots to be "thankful to us)

  9. To Jefferson,

    Regarding labeling your posts and not have them displayed, what is the point of labeling them at all? Bloggers have waited for this for such a long time and have used all kinds of hacks to get it before New Blogger came along, and you don't want them displayed?

    Perhaps there is a way by editing the template, but it is not likely to be of interest to any blogger except you and I don't have the time to try.

  10. To JElgart,

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Your link in the comment is not active. This is not good for you. See Make active (clickable) links in posts and comments.

  11. To Tom,

    If you want to transfer the content of a post to another post in the same or different blog, you must use the EDIT HTML mode in the Blogger post editor window so you copy all the HTML. It is best you try to avoid duplicate content which means you either have to do a bit of editing, or you leave links to the new posts like this example: Why Malaysia MUST CHANGE.

However, are you in any way implying I have taken material from your blog? If so, I take exception to it (meaning I don't like it).

  20. If your video is popular, Youtube will invite you to add ads to video. Otherwise you can put ads in the rest of the post.
