Vodpod members have collected videos from nearly 1500 different sites on the web. The list grows by 5 to 10 sites every day.
So what sites work with Vodpod? Simply, any site that provides videos (typically and preferably in the “Flash” format) with an “embed code.”
The “embed code” is a short string of text that provides a way for you to add a video to your Vodpod, or your blog. Here’s what part of an embed code from The Daily Show site looks like:
embed src=’http://www.thedailyshow.com/video_player/view/default/swf.jhtml’ quality=’high’ …
If you see that the site provides embed codes for its videos, the easiest way to add the video to your collection on Vodpod, or post it to your blog, is with our “Save to Vodpod” button. If this doesn’t “grab” the video, copy the embed code and paste it into the form we provide on the “Save to Vodpod” popup. Further instructions on how to do that are here.
You can also copy the embed code, and paste it into “Add Video” page for your pod.
