"Video is a major component of the Web today. Luckily, WordPress makes it easy to publish and share video. In this article, we will demonstrate ways of working with video in WordPress and in Flash. You will learn how to embed an .flv file, create an .xml video sitemap, and distribute your videos to sites such as YouTube and Blip. We will also show you how to set up Free WP Tube, a free video blogging theme that allows you to run a video web log (vlog). FLV Embed (Version 1.2.1)

"If you want to embed .flv files, use a Flash video player, and/or publish a video sitemap, this compact plugin does all three. The homepage is http://www.channel-ai.com/blog/plugins/flv-embed/.

"FLV Embed uses standards compliant, valid XHTML, and JavaScript. It is based on the JW FLV Media Player, whose homepage is http://www.longtailvideo.com/players/jw-flvplayer/

"FLV Embed supports Google video sitemap generation, allowing you to describe, syndicate, and distribute your video content, facilitating indexing in Google video search."
