    Please make [flash] shortcode button and add to post same YouTube button

    A lots of video site that Viper's Video Quicktags doesn't has a shortcode so peoples have to use [flash] BUT why there's no [flash] button on post page. Now we have to manually write down [flash......] (somebody also don't know and forget this tag). Please make [flash] shortcode button + let us choose video size and other values popup on post page same YouTube button

    How can I embed a generic Flash file or a video from a website this plugin doesn't support?

    This plugin has a [flash] shortcode that can be used to embed any Flash file. Here is the format:

    [flash width="123" height="456" flashvars="name1=value1&name2=value2"]http://site.com/path/to/file.swf[/flash]

  2. The [flash] tag is an advanced users only tag. If I make a button, then I'll get a million questions from novice users asking me over and over how to embed a video from Site XYZ into their blog. I'll have to explain to them how to get the FlashVars, how to convert them into a query string format, etc.

    Having to type it out takes all of 15 seconds -- it's not hard. ;)
