Anyone know where to find a plugin that automatically embeds videos based on their links?
ie. Post a youtube URL and bam it’s automatically embedded for you?
On the old standalone bbPress 1.x this one was great: http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/bbvideo/
I cannot find anything like it for use with bbPress 2.0
My post toolbar plugin handles youtube by way of shortcode [youtube]link[/youtube].
I also will have the same problem when I upgrade my site in that the old posts will just be links to the video, rather than embedding them. Personally I don’t see a problem here though
PS: I’m thinking of having it check for youtube links that are not inside the shortcode, also. But I’ll get to that when I can be bothered.
master5o1 thanks for responding.
Ill give ur plugin a shot.

Would not be difficult to turn on WordPress’s existing oEmbed functionality.
Could also tap into Jetpack’s way of embedding videos I suppose?
Yep. They are just posts, after all.
