Can I use TubePress to embed a single video on a blog post? If so, what are the advantages of using TubePress for this purpose over using the WordPress [youtube] tag?

 

Thanks.

 

Frank.

Hi Frank,

 

Yes, this is a first-class feature of TubePress. In this support article you can see how to use this feature, and we also list a few of the benefits of using TubePress over other embed mechanisms.

 

Does that answer your question? Let us know - thanks!

Eric, I forgot to mention I am working with tubepress express. How do i generate code with tubepress express to embed a single video on a WordPress post?

 

Thanks.

Hi Frank,

 

The short answer is that with TubePress Express, you can currently only generate galleries and not single video embeds. This is really a limitation of the admin GUI screen of TubePress Express. The good news is that we are in the middle of a major overhaul of the TubePress admin GUI, and once it's ready TubePress Express will have the ability to display galleries, single video embeds, interactive searching, and more. I don't have a firm ETA for this release but if I had to guess I'd say it will be out in a month or two.

 

In the meantime the only workaround is to stick with the usual YouTube <iframe> embeds.

 

Does that answer your question? I'm sorry that we can't be of more help right now!
