How I added Video Widget to Genesis Child Themes without using a plugin

 I just shared a new tutorial on 3rd Planet Techies, explaining with codes how I implemented the theme junkie Video widget on various wordpress and genesis themes.

View some of the excerpts below or click on the link at the last lines to read full post.   

Obviously we aren’t going to be needing any plugin for this since it is a property already included in most Theme Junkie premium themes. This video widget is far better than what is obtainable with most video plugins out there as it is not limited to youtube videos only.
Nice enough wordpress 3.6.1 now integrates the HTML5 video playback and audio embedding options as it’s core features making it possible to embed single media files with playback option directly into your post without needing an extra plugin for that.

As for today’s discussion we are looking into a more complicated situation where you may want to build clients website using genesis child themes in such a way that it can display several videos with titles and description by simply using this videoplus widget custom code snippet.
You can drop the widget in custom positions such as the sidebar, footer widget area or even in custom home page widget areas. I have personally used this code without errors on the following studiopress genesis child themes; Eleven40, Magazine, News, Streamline, Enterprise and some other custom child themes I tweaked by myself.
