Video Embed tag

I like to request that the embed tag or anything Google Video, Yahoo Video, YouTube, Grouper, etc. are using be included in the allowed HTML tags.

Or better yet, give us an option in the admin panel where we can "check" which tags we want to allow. (Was reading the php file and can't seem to figure it out :p my php knowledge is limited.)

Thanks!

I,m all behind this features, we shouldn't have to hack a perfectly great script to add simple videos.

What about one's own videos not posted to YouTube? I mean, there are cases one might not want - or doesn't feel it's proper - to post on You Tube... after all blogging is often a personal thing.
Does allowing embed imply a risk securitywise?

I followed the directions on this post and couldn't get it work.

I want to embed some video so if someone w/ b2evo .9.1 has it working, I would appreciate the code/files.

Thanks.

A lot of vloggers are using Blip.tv (as opposed to the millions of people dancing in their bedrooms wearing their underpants who seem to prefer YouTube).

I was pretty shocked when I tried to embed a video using code that worked perfectly with WordPress and got sassed by b2 telling me it wasn't allowed.

Adding <embed> support ... [url=http://www.randsco.com/blogD/restrictStub.php/2006/05/07/adding_the_embed_tag_to_b2evolution]a tutorial[/url]

b2evo is standards based and <embed> is a deprecated tag (in short). It's your blog though, so IF you want to use it ... go for it (you just need to tell b2evo "hey, quit giving me errors when I use it" ... or shut off the html-checker ... the thing that "sasses you" (prevents you from posting) ... but don't forget to turn it back on again.

Anyway, the link it a post about what you need to change to _formatting.php, to allow subtags and attributes (in general) and the <embed> tag inside a <p> tag, with width, height, autostart, showcontrols and loop attributes for v0.9.x (specifically).

Hope this helps.

Yah, I checked our W3C, embed is deprecated. I decided not to use it anymore, since I prefer not to use deprecated stuff if there's another way around to it.

I ended up using the youtube plugin, not sure if its using the embed tag though.

Have to study XhtML 2 and familiarize myself with what's new and what's deprecated... ^_^
