In WordPress 3.6 there are some major changes in the post editor. One of them is Video/Audio support. Users can now embed their favourite videos or audio files into posts directly. There is no need to install a WordPress plugin for video/audio playback anymore.
How Video/Audio Embedding Option Works?
In WordPress 3.6 you can create various types of posts. Lets take a look at a Standard Post:
A standard post is more like a mixed editor. It allows you to embed a video along with your other content using a simple shortcode:
You can also define various file types so your videos are compatible with other browsers.
[video width="600" height="480" mp4="http://www.example.com/uploads/myvid.mp" ogv="http://www.example.com/uploads/myvid.ogv" webm="http://www.example.com/uploads/myvid.webm"]
Audio files work just the same way.
[audio mp3="http://www.example.com/uploads/mymusic.mp3" ogg="http://www.example.com/uploads/mymusic.ogg" wav="http://www.example.com/uploads/mymusic.wav"]
And this is how it looks like when you publish your post.
I think this is a great improvement in the core WordPress. What do you think?
