We all watch facebook videos almost everyday. But do you know that you can embed facebook hosted videos to your blog or website even on a wordpress or blogger’s blog.
Its very simple and you can do it easily. For wordpress users: you can use this trick to embed a Facebook video on your website without using any plugin (Using many plugins utilizes valuable resources which slow down site performance ). So i prefer no-plugin way to do such tasks.
Step 1: Open Facebook and select any video you like to embed on your blog.
Step 2: Play the video and wait until it finishes because only then we can go the video page.
Step 3: Once the video is finished, you will see “Go to Video” button. Click that. This will take you to the video page.
Step 4: Copy that page URL: for ex: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=xxxxxxyyyyyzzzzz
Step 5: Edit this url like this http://www.facebook.com/v/xxxxxxyyyyyzzzzz
Step 6: If you will copy paste this edited url to the browser then you will see a full screen ready to play video. Now we need to make the embed code so that we can use it on a website or blog.
Step 7:<object width="400" height="224" > <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /> <param name="movie" value="http://www.facebook.com/v/xxxxxxyyyyyzzzzz" /> <embed src="http://www.facebook.com/v/xxxxxxyyyyyzzzzz" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="224"> </embed> </object>
You need to change only “xxxxxxyyyyyzzzzz” to your video code.
Just paste this code to the your site and you are good to go.
For WordPress users: Make sure you paste the code under HTML tab and not under Visual tab while making a post. Pasting the code under Visual tab will only paste the code and will not embed the video. So be little careful.
Step 8: Time to embed a video now as I am embedding one now.
