Embedding a TED Talk in your self hosted WordPress is a bit annoying sometimes, so I just released a few hours ago my new WordPress plugin :)
First time you see a TED Talk video embedded in your site, the plugin needs to grab the sharing HTML code for that video from TED.com (note: you need to have CURL or fopen enabled on your hosting). After that first load, the embedding code is stored in one custom field, so no need to grab the code again from TED.com
Since february 2014, the plugin uses now same oEmbed code than Jetpack plugin. So after so long, TEDTalks Embedder is back to life.
Additionally, now it has settings to allow you to set default values for width, height, and language. These default values will be used only when you omit then in the shortcode.
You can install TEDTalks Embedder from your WordPress dashboard or download it from WordPress.org
By the way, this plugin was specially made for TEDxZaragoza ‘The Future of Happiness’, an independently organized TED event that
was held on November 5, 2011 in Zaragoza (Spain).
If you find useful this plugin, please consider to make a small donation to support it ;)
