With the exception of YouTube, I always keep forgetting how to embed video into a WordPress.com blog post (hint: it’s not the embed code). Here’s a handy little quick reference on how to embed video from different sources and how to embed other sorts of media:
What shortcodes does WordPress use?
[audio] converts a link to an mp3 file into an audio player. See full instructions here.
[caption] adds a caption to an image. See full instructions here.
[digg] embeds a voting button for your link on Digg. See full instructions here.
[flickr] embeds a Flickr video. See full instructions here.
[gallery] displays a thumbnail gallery of images attached to that post or page. See full instructions here.
embeds Google Maps. See full instructions here.
[googlevideo] embeds a Google Video. See full instructions here.
[livevideo] embeds a video from LiveVideo. See full instructions here.
[odeo] embeds an Odeo audio file. See full instructions here.
[podtech] embeds audio or video from the PodTech Network. See full instructions here.
[polldaddy] embeds a PollDaddy poll(use without the space). See full instructions here.
[redlasso] embeds a video from Redlasso. See full instructions here.
[rockyou] embeds a slideshow from RockYou. See full instructions here.
[slideshare] embeds a slideshow from Slideshare.net. See full instructions here.

[splashcast] embeds Splashcast media. See full instructions here.
[vimeo] embeds a Vimeo video. See full instructions here.
[youtube] embeds a YouTube video. See full instructions here.
Looks like it’s much more flexible than I thought, though it would still be easier just to support copy/paste of embed code (though, I understand why they don’t do it, for security reasons, etc.)
Update: For some reason, DailyMotion didn’t get included in this list, but you can find the instructions here:
Much clearer explanation, from the video’s page:
This is a fast and simple vehicle swingset tutorial.
Follow my steps in the video, so you know how to do the swingset glitch.
The steps are also in the video description on Youtube.
This works on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 as of now.
This is the location of where the swingset glitch is.
This can be done by any vehicle, but it is hard to do this glitch with a motorcycle because there are high chances of you falling off.
You have to go slow onto the swingset with your car.
Once you reach the middle bar, hold X (PS3) or the brake button.
While holding the brake button, hold R2 (PS3) or the accelerate button.
It sometimes works without holding R2.
After a few seconds you will be catapulted across the map.
This is incredibly fun to try in the game; it’s not too hard, but it does take a bit of patience.
Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 – July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving presentation, “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.

The video quality is a little shoddy, but it’s a good compilation of Parkour clips from District B13 and elsewhere…
This guy (Adam Dunlap) teaches a Parkour class in Portland, which I’ve been taking for the past two weeks. The class is really fun, and he’s really good at Parkour:
I’m in a big parkour kick right now. I can even do a *little* of this.
(Very little. Not anywhere close to David Belle, mind you.)
I can pretty much guarantee that this is the craziest shit you will ever see. Yep.
