We’ve received a number of requests from users wishing to deploy our widget code on their WordPress.com blog sites.

Which until now hasn’t been possible, but apparently there is a nice work-around using the Vodopod:

Vodpod solution number 1

Vodpod is a service to keep track of videos and embeds you find on the internet. Vodpod’s video sharing is available to all wordpress.com blogs, which do not allow flash/javascript to be embedded on the blogs themselves.

The Vodpod bookmarklet will allow you to post them in your blog without creating an account.
http://vodpod.com/wordpress

You drag and drop the bookmarklet to your browser menu, and when you are on the page with the relevant cloudcast you just click on the bookmarklet and it will allow you to post the video to your wordpress.com blog.

Vodpod solution number 2
Set up a vodpod account here – http://www.vodpod.com

Navigate to the page with the cloudcast that you would like to share. Copy and paste the embed code
login in to your Vodpod account and add the video. Once you have added the video, you can choose to share it.
You can then post it to your WordPress.com blog from the site.

Good luck and do let us know how you get on in the comments below…
