Video and Audio BBCodes


This plugin adds support for video and audio shortcodes to wordpress.
It integrates with the ‘bbPress2 shortcode whitelist’ plugin to provide
a safe way of enabling BBCode without giving your users access to all
shortcodes. If installed with the latter the admin will have the option
of allowing users to use these audio and video bbcodes in their posts.

Youtube Links: 
Video URLS Links: 
Google Video Links: [gvideo]Google Video ID[/gvideo] [googlevideo]Google Video ID[/googlevideo]
Video URLS Links: [video]Youtube, Vimeo or GoogleVideo URLs only[/video]
Freesound audio: [freesound] sound ID only[/freesound]


Can you add support for more video and audio sites?

I intend to extend this plugin, but I can’t make promises
regarding specific sites. It doesn’t hurt to ask me though.
If there is enough demand and it looks possible, I will probably
do it.
