The New York Times, long an innovator in creating unique news video for the Web, is now allowing anyone to copy videos from the site and embed them onto blogs, social media, and Web sites.

The video embed codes are made available around the videos, which are inserted into article pages.  Embed codes have not surfaced yet on the paper's video section. 

Several major U.S. newspapers, including the Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal, have provided the sharable code for some time.

We have embed a video about the exotic animals rescued from drug lords in Columbia.  It is part of a report by New York Times correspondent Simon Romero.
