Extry, Extry: MLB Videos Now Embed-able

Some cursory Google-ing reveals no specific announcement on the matter from MLB itself, but, as David Pinto discovered ca. 48 hours ago (and the media on the present electronic page illustrates) video embedding is now available through MLB.com.

Here’s what the page for the above video looks like, for example:

As Pinto suggests — and which even more cursory investigation reveals — there doesn’t appear to be an embed option for the most recent videos. While that makes the discovery less than 100% satisfying, this certainly marks a step in the best direction for MLB.

And there was much rejoicing.

The embed feature is coded in for recent videos but apparently they are hiding the feature. I tried digging through the page elements some but that’s beyond my expertise. Maybe new videos will have the embed switch flipped on soon.

It’s interesting that the video is copyright 2010. What was its status from 2003-2009, I wonder?

Some of the new videos I saw flashed an embed option really quickly before it disappeared. That was a highlight video from tonight, so if you’re quick about it you could nab the code..;-)
