    Is there any change Flickr video shortcodes will be added to XVE soon? I am considering using Flickr to store my videos and dropping Vimeo Pro as I already use Flickr Pro and realized they do videos pretty well too.

    FYI, I am not actually watching the WP.org forums, but XVE is not actually unmaintained per-se. I am sorry for not answering your requests, but watching these forums is an extra overhead for me. You can drop some lines here if you would like to see more from XVE: http://www.saltwaterc.eu/contact

    There will be a drop-in replacement (called: XVE - XVE Various Embed) that will consider a lot of the requested features, including support for Flickr. However, till I can research Flickr, I have to get it ready for the v1.0 GA release. This is a completely new plug-in that happens to support all the old plug-in features, and more.

    Flickr will probably make its way into v1.1 where I have plans for implementing oEmbed for the services that don't provide a clean way for URL-to-embed translation without doing a remote call. If there's a way to avoid oEmbed or any remote call (such as using YQL / Flickr API), the support will be there sooner.

    Regards,
    SwC

    Thanks for dropping by! That is great news. Have for now moved to YouTube for movies instead of Vimeo and YouTube works well with XVE. Would still be great to have Flickr added though.
    Do follow your blog and have been posting there too, but I do try to get most of my answers here at WordPress.org before I move to the author's sites. Unless the plugin is not stored in the WP repository that is. Looking forward to the new release. Keep us posted!

    I subscribed to the forum feed into Google Reader regarding this plug-in topics, therefore I'll keep an eye on it from now on.

    If you're curious, you can grab the current v1.0 RC1 from here: https://github.com/SaltwaterC/XVE-Various-Embed/tree/master/wp-content/plugins/xve . I still have to wait for the new plug-in to be accepted into the wordpress.org plug-in hosting if the older plug-in can't be renamed. The codebase is stable, but it requires some cleanup. The feedback is welcome, especially if the new AJAX-driven UI is confusing or not. There's no "Save" button for the settings. Everything is event-driven, but my UI-fu is not strong as I'm mostly a backend developer.
