This is a test of some iPhone geekery. Since acquiring a 3GS i’ve been putting it through its paces as a power blogging machine. There is a WordPress application that is fairly limited. You can post photos but it involves a lot of manual html editing if you want it to look right. Another challenge has been embedding video in a post with the iPhone.

There is no direct way (that I know of) to grab the embed code from a YouTube video on the iPhone to copy and paste into the WordPress App. However, I just discovered a neat website Posterous that lets me do just that! All I do is email the copy and the YouTube link and it connects to WP and embeds the video.

Painless and simple.

Now the whole mystery of updating video in real time on our WordPress blog has been solved!
