Free Plugin Integrates Micro Videoblogging Into WordPress Blogs

Mar 31st, 2009 | By | Category: Microblogging, Video

Chandima Cumaranatunge has developed a free WordPress plug-in that allows users to incorporate micro video posts into their blogs. The plugin is designed to let you create and update Live blog posts using micro video application 12seconds.tv. The video site 12seconds allows bloggers to use the webcam on their computer or their mobile phone to record (in 12 seconds or less) and post “status updates.”

Once you’ve installed and configured the 12seconds widget with your account info, it will let you “add a sidebar widget to display 12seconds video status updates. For those of you who are familiar with Twitter; 12seconds is like Twitter, but with video instead of text updates. You can also embed the widget in WordPress posts and pages using shortcodes.”

Features:

  • Displays the latest video status for a 12seconds user.
  • You can choose to display a “skinny” (175 X 290) or “fat” (380 X 440) version of the widget.
  • Can navigate to and view previous status updates in the “fat” widget using a thumbnail carousel.
  • You can embed the widget in posts and pages using shortcodes.

The sidebar widget itself is essentially a video player. It uses the widget embed code provided by 12seconds.tv. The plugin eliminates the extra steps of copying and pasting embed code, and modifying templates. One can see you this would be a great tool for quick mini blog updates when out in the field: at a conference, on a trip, etc.

It also seems an interesting complement to the Twitter Liveblog plug-in we told you about two days ago, which puts Twitter status updates into your blog feed.

The 12seconds WordPress plug-in is available at Turing Tarpit.
