If you watched the F8 conference you know that you can embed facebook videos now on your own blog and webpage. Since wordpress and most other CMS dont like scripts in the content area here is a small walk thru to optimise and minimise the embed code to the needed essence.
1) Facebook embed default get the facebook video you like to embed.

2) The Simple way . In Text mode paste following code into your Blogpost and change the video url to your video. Or only the Video ID the number behind the v=12345674545 is fine. Dont forget to switch from VISUAL to TEXT mode in your editor. In detail its only a div with a class and the data-href parameter nothing big.
<div class="fb-video" data-allowfullscreen="true" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10155052082035157"> </div>
The only difference to a standard Post embed is the style class=”fb-video” that tells the script how to embed the facebook video . It nearly the same for embed Facebook posts by default with the following code snippet.
<div class="fb-post" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10155052082035157" data-width="500">
Witch will render like that on this blog probably i should remove the data-with=500 attribute to stay fluid .
the only difference between post and video embed is the style class=”fb-post” all the other code stuff is not needed and only clutter your blog.
Pro Facebook Video: Not all Youtube Videos are allowed to embed on external webpages . Many more mobile videos from apps that are probably hard to find in youtube. Most videos are pre curated by the community on there virality. Many News Channels TV-Host and filmmaker upload videos to facebook . Embed Facebook videos are unblockable. Easy to integrate once setup .
Downside : Likes on embedded facebook videos need a additional confirmation click, for security reason not sure how many user will follow 2 click and window popup for a simple Like. Only Public and Fanpage videos can be embed. Every external embed will slow down your blog.
