    picture-76BBC News have announced that the site is soon to allow embedding of BBC content onto other sites!

    Initially, only technology focused stories and video from the “World” section of the BBC News site will be made available for embedding elsewhere.

    Retrieving the embed code is as easy as pie and those of you familiar with the procedure on video sharing sites won’t have a problem. Simply click “share” on the player, select the “embed” option, copy the code and paste it wherever accepts HTML.

    One concern however is that the terms and conditions state that you can only use the embedding code on your personal site which leaves presumably leaves commercial blogs/sites (yes, such as this one) out of the picture.
