UPDATE: Unfortunately embedding Scribd using vodpod doesn’t work anymore the facility to do this has been removed.
It just gets better….. now wordpress users who don’t host their own site can still have the flexibility to embed scribd using vodpod (as described in previous posts for embedding Voki and Animoto). First of all make sure you have installed the vodpod button as follows….
1. Visit http://vodpod.com/wordpress
2. Click on the install now button – close and restart yourbrowser and you should find a blue button in the browser bar with a W.
3. When you have uploaded a document to scribd or found a document you want to embed, simply click on the “Post to WordPress” button on your browser tool bar whilst on the page with the document you want embedding.
Altering the size / position of the embedded Scribd
Once the document has been embedded in a post, to alter the position or post it is in, simply go to edit post and copy the embedding code. You can also change the size of the embedded scribd to make it easier to read, simply open up the edit page and locate the code eg. vodpod***************&w=425&h=350&fv=] – then alter the w and h – either by doubling or by multiplying the numbers proportionally to make it bigger.
Here is an example of a Scribd document I found on the basics of podcasting – finally embedded into wordpress! Here I have set the Width at 643and the Height at 513. Remember also this embedding tool works with all sorts of videos!Vodpod videos no longer available.
