TinyMCE visual editor support for embed.ly service
This package provides TinyMCE visual editor support for embed.ly service: videos, images and other rich media can be inserted to Plone from different services through one API.
The approach here is to use the Transform machinery to replace the URL with embed code by calling the embed.ly API.
There are more than 200 services that support embed.ly service. These are such video sharing sites as Youtube, Blip.tv, Vimeo; such audio streaming services as Grooveshark, SoundCloud, last.fm; such image/photo stocks as Flickr, and many other: GoogleMaps, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
To embed media from the embedly-supported external resource to Plone:
- Go to the object’s edit form, select some text and click ‘Insert/Edit Embedly link’ button.
- In the panel add link and configure extra parameters in ‘Advanced’ tab. Check http://embed.ly/docs/arguments for params description.
- The text should now look like linked. TinyMCE makes the whole passage linked, so keep in mind that the whole passage will later be substituted with embedded media.
- Save this page. Now when rendered, there will be “preview” from embed.ly service inserted instead of the linked text.

collective.embedly does not fix errors in provided URLs
you can check if your URL will be transformed calling embed.ly manualy, for example:
o video URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1NPLlhFTVk o you should call http://api.embed.ly/1/oembed setting ‘url’ parameter with your value o http://api.embed.ly/1/oembed?url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1NPLlhFTVk o http://api.embed.ly/1/oembed?url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1NPLlhFTVk&fromat=xml format result as xml
You can set the API key by going to Site Setup -> Configuration Registry and setting the api_key value. The default is to not pass along a key, your requests to embedly will be anonymous and based solely on IP address.
