Windows Live Writer Tip #9 – Quickly Inserting Videos

So you’ve found a great video on YouTube (or SoapBox) and you want to share that video with your readers. We all know about the image option that’s there in Live Writer under the insert section on the right hand side, which will give you the familiar screen:


You take your YouTube link, paste it in there and see your preview and then insert it into your blog. Well, there’s actually a quicker way of doing this. Much quicker. You have your YouTube link, so just go ahead and paste it straight into the Live Writer editor. This will automatically embed the video into your blog.

Don’t have the actual YouTube link, but have the embed code? Not a problem, same principle applies, just paste it into the editor.
