I upgraded my account and still cant embed audio. Instead I am only able to link to an external page that plays the file.

I actually figured it out. Thank you. It was the type of code that WordPress accepts when embedding audio. you have to use [audio MP3URL_here] and your good to go.

I needed to do the same thing as thedjprototype and managed to figure out how to embed the audio but it’s playing automatically when i click onto the page – all three files at once! How do I stop that?! I only want them to play when someone presses the ‘play’ button!

For some reason I cannot seem to work out (and I used to do it) how to link a photo I upload to text in a blog post.
It keeps becoming a thumbnail and obliterating the word.

The comments about the music are hilarious! How could that possibly bother anyone enough to comment? Haha!
Anyways, I think it’s a great video – thanks very much for putting this together. It makes it very easy to introduce new users to WordPress.

I purchased the video upgrade and am trying to upload a video from my camera, but it only seems to show up as a photo – there’s no tab to push to start the video. What am I missing?

Everything works great, EXCEPT – embedded videos. How do I keep the player from starting immediately when the page is opened? Youtube embeds aren’t having that problem but these are:
What do I change?

How do I embed an audio file so it plays whenever someone visits the page? Theme music, if you will!

Do I need to upgrade in order to post videos from sites other than YouTube? For example, there is a CBS news video that I would like to use, but neither posting the URL or their embed code seems to work…

I purchased extra space on WordPress so that I am able to add some audio in .mp3 format. I have uploaded the .mp3, and it is clickable on my Homepage. However, I notice that clicking it takes viewer away from my page to a blank white screen where the audio progress bar shows. Is this normal? It would be nice if viewer could stay on same page to listen to the audio.

Thanks. I had to first figure out by trial and error to go into “links Editor” to “permanently delete” the old link…and then re-upload my .mp3 fiel, and then your advice worked just fine. Now the audio player is embedded in the page and i am a happy camper!

I am having the same issue as well with adding pictures and embedding the code in WP. Any idea what the problem could be?

Try using nimbb.com in which you can record 30 seconds of video for free using your webcam. It is very easy, simple, and fast. I saw nimbb being used by the Doctors without borders in the Campaign “Kiss Malaria Goodbye”. So, I guess you can integrate nimbb technology into your blog/website and also you can share your videos on twitter and facebook.
