CNN Embedable Video

It seems such a small revolution, but one of things I instituted at msnbc.com was embeddable video. A year later, no other site affiliated with a news network had gotten on board -- until recently. It looks like cnn.com just added an "embed" button. [via]

Just this morning I wanted to embed an ABC News video but when I clicked their little "share" button it was just a form to email it. Lame. YOU ARE AHEAD OF YOUR TIME!

CBSNews.com has had embedding on its videos for at least the past month.

It's a huge deal. The whole point of having things on the net is to be able to share and comment. Although Facebook has made embed less important/useful.

C-SPAN now offers embeddable video -that you can edit as well - as part of their Convention web coverage (in addition to Qik and Twitter functionality and a YouTube page) http://dnc08.c-span.org/ or http://rnc08.c-span.org/
