UStream for WordPress

Add easy to use functionality to embed UStrem videos and broadcasts.

Ustream for WordPress is a plugin that enables the user to embed Ustream live and recorded embeds. Put the url for the ustream video you'd like between the embed tags.

[embed]http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/98889950[/embed]
[embed]http://www.ustream.tv/channel/iss-hdev-payload[/embed]

This really comes in handy when your blog is on a multi site WordPress instance where you are not allowed to add iframe code etc.

Deprecated shortcode embed method

The deprecated method for embedding Ustream still works, but ignores all non-oembed info. One can add tags (short codes) on the format [ustream cid="xxxxx"] or [ustream vid="xxxxx"] in blog posts/pages and have them replaced by their video content from UStream.

This deprecated method uses short codes and automatically replaces the [ustream cid="xxxxx"] or [ustream vid="xxxxx"] tags with the embedded video related to the given cid or vid.

The [ustream cid="xxxxx"] tag is used when you want to stream a live broad cast and the [ustream vid="xxxxx"] is used when to publish a recorded video.
