"Keep your fingers crossed" - Jason
Yeah - its not too difficult playing the theremin with your fingers crossed.. but you ever tried playing a keyboard that way ? ;-)
searching >> tinymce you tube << on Google returned loads of hits.. It seems there are widgets and code available, for example these :
It all looks quite simple, but some people do seem to have problems, and apparently iframe objects pose a security risk ?
Whatever - I am sure you have found all this stuff and know you are much better at sucking these particular eggs than I will ever be ;-).. but having found these, I couldn discard them - just in case.
Also, theres not much technical stuff going on in TW at the mo - and I am missing having my name filling the top 5 recent posts.. ROFLMAO ;-)
Thanks for the examples. I'll probably get a chance to take a good look at it and the rest of the suggestions from this thread over the weekend. I need to catch up on some "real" work for the rest of this week though :).
Next up - I'm adding "open" photo albums, so multiple users can contribute photos to a single album. I should have that ready to add over the weekend too.
Yes! Just tested it on an old thread, and its great! No more copying / pasting links in a new tab for something not worth watching - can now stay at home in TW and watch the telly in the usual way - flipping the channels.. ;-)
Thank you Jason, and well done!
There is just one slight disadvantage to embedded you-tube widgets that I can see.. pages where you-tube is embedded do take longer to load.
Not sure how it works - sometimes the Moog Documentary page (which has 4 you-tube widgets) loads almost instantly, but sometimes it has a noticable delay.. do the widgets actually "contact" you-tube to load the image for each widget? .. If so, I suppose the speed will depend on internet traffic - particularly to you tube.
The above probably wont badly affect anyone with a fast PC and fast internet connection .. but its probably best to use this feature sparingly? (for the sake of those with slow PC / Connection) Or perhaps there could be a new 'forum' >>"Theremin on you-tube"<< or the like, where most you-tube widgets are placed, and people will know that those pages might be slower to load ?
They should load in the background via AJAX, but I could definitely see that it has an impact on page load speed. I suspect most threads won't have videos, but let's see how usage of the feature evolves and then I can revisit the idea.
