This is great. Which screen recorder did you use? I love it it follows your mouse around without having to record the whole screen.
The “embed” code does not meet web-standards. If you’d like to make your pages validate try using this code:
This works for YouTube, Google Video, SlideShare, etc.
There’s more information on how to make this work at:

Hey there mr moses. I wanna use good and open standards too, so thanks. I dunno how to display html in a post so we can see it, and I spose its different in wordpress. Your code didn’t show up, but its on the link you provided. I wonder why YouTube doesn’t provide standard code?
btw – free and open source screen recorder, but Windows only 😦 camstudio.org

to show html you have to change the %u201C< " and ">%u201D signs in your code to %u201C<%u201D and %u201C>%u201D – ready to paste into a blog entry or web page. There’s a great online tool for the job called postable: http://www.elliotswan.com/postable/

bugger, that didn’t quite work out, and I can’t edit the post. What I meant was…
http://www.elliotswan.com/postable/ – a little online app. that automates the switch between "< " and ">" signs in your code to < and > – ready to paste into a blog entry or web page

Thanks for the info the on the screen recorder. I use CamStudio (as well as Camtasia). I’ll I have to look for that “follow the mouse” feature. You did a great job with the CamStudio frame-rate. I’ll have to play around with that too. 🙂
As for why the “embed” tag is still being used: I don’t know. It’s not that much easier that using the “object” tag. There is a lot of resistance to web-standards, especially among major companies, but it comes as a surprise that Google would be resistant.
Finally, here’s link to a dead simple WordPress code posting plug in:
