The easiest way to share your favorite content from sites like YouTube, Flickr, Hulu and more on your BuddyPress network.
Because oEmbed for BuddyPress checks each link to see if it is oEmbeddable, for performance reasons, each link is cached in the database to reduce redundant oEmbed requests.
The cached entry is either the embed code (if the link is oEmbeddable) or the failed link.
By default, the plugin whitelists hyperlinks and URLs residing on the same domain as BuddyPress.
The cool thing is you can extend the whitelist.
For example, in an activity update, say you type in "http://www.google.com", the plugin will cache that link in the database. Say you wanted to omit Google.com links from being cached.
bp-oembed-config.php in a text editor and add the following line to the end:
$bp_oembed['whitelist'] = 'google.com';
This will whitelist all links from google.com.
array_map() warning is displayed - this is a BuddyPress issue, which is fixed in the latest bleeding version of BuddyPress (http://trac.buddypress.org/changeset/2747)
When a forum post is deleted, the oEmbed forum post cache in bbPress isn't deleted (appears to be a bbPress issue)
Hyperlinks with single quotes get mangled (if you're a regex expert, I could use your help!)
I'm a regular on the buddypress.org forums. I spend a lot of my free time helping people - pro bono!
