I’m in the process on recoding Viper’s Video Quicktags and am looking for input.
If there’s a feature or a video site that you would like to see supported in the next version, the comments section of this post is the place to post it. Please note that in order for a video website to be supported, the URL in your address bar must have something in common with the embed code. What I mean is the URL can’t be this:
while the embed HTML looks like this:
<object width="400" height="300"><param name="movie" value="http://embed.videosite.com/files/52asdf7f43j753v32465" /></object>
Notice that there is no way for my plugin to figure out the embed ID from the video’s URL.
Oh, and here’s a sneak preview of my work in progress configuration screen:
EDIT 8/29: Here’s a newer screenshot:
great work. you might want to add the property “scale” with value “tofit” in order to display quicktime movies correct when resizing. See also http://www.apple.com/quicktime/tutorials/embed2.html#scale
I would like to suggest adding support for http://www.livevideo.com
Interesting. I wondered why the interface I was seeing in my console didn’t look at all like the screenshots here or at the plugin repository… in fact, I have only one quicktag button even in the visual editor and it doesn’t at all resemble the ones shown in the screenshots for this plugin, but it works just the same.
Looking forward to the new version, too.

The screenshots on the repository are old and were taken on an old version of WordPress which used an old version of TinyMCE (the rich editor). The configuration screen should look nearly identical to the ones there though.
I’ve been using your plugin for a while now on my blog. I’d really like the ability to embed YouTube playlists in my WordPress posts. Many thanks for all your hard work.

Yep, the next version will support that. 🙂
Support for http://oembed.com/ might solve some of your problems
Please try not to ignore WPMU while developing this baby. Thanks.

That is very slick, although it requires that the server be able to make a remote connection (not all can). Plus it’s list of supported sites isn’t that long and the next version of my plugin already supports quite a few on that list via URL parsing.
I have plans for using the HTTP API that will be in WordPress 2.7 though to add support for sites that don’t have a URL in common with their embed code.

I’m actually developing this with WPMU in mind (gonna submit it to a WPMU plugin competition). Although honestly a properly coded plugin doesn’t actually need any changes to be made WPMU compatible. Installing my plugin for WPMU will just involve installing normally and then moving just the main plugin file to the

Most important is for admin to be able to allow or disallow users to use it. It is better (for me personally) to use it inside

One more thing. In your opinion, will your plugin give me headache if I use WordTube plugin (because of Jeroen Wijering’s player) on same installation?

Yes, my plugin uses Jeroen Wijering’s player but only for FLV files. YouTube videos for example are played back via YouTube’s player.
JW’s player is the most widely used player for FLV playback for a reason — it’s damn good. Plus if you want to use it on a commercial website, the license is only 20 Euros.
6.0.0 has been committed and available for download soon, so I’m closing this post.
