Viper's Video Quicktags
VVQ and WordPress Embeds (1 post)

    I've been running VVQ for quite some time now, but as more and more video players move to "smart" IFRAME embeds to toggle between Flash and HTML5, I'm tempted to start using the built in embed capability in WordPress (since 2.9)...

    What are the disadvantages of going this direction, and is there any plan to update VVQ's easier to use interface to start using wordpress [EMBED][/EMBED] code blocks instead of the video site specific tags? It seems to me that if you kept the front-end pieces (the toolbar stuff), and the legacy support for people who previously tagged posts the old way, you could have the best of both worlds.

    That is, old posts shouldn't break, but new posts will get the automatic upgrade support that's provided by the WordPress/oEmbed implementation, right?
