Video Bracket Tag

Insert videos into posts using bracket method.

This plugin provides the ability to embed a number of video objects into your WP pages. The formatting is based off of the familiar BBCode tagging, so anyone who regulars forums these days will already be comfortable with their usage.

The current supported formats are:

  • Blip.tv - bliptv
  • College Humor - collegehumor
  • Daily Motion - dailymotion
  • Google - google
  • Hulu - hulu
  • LiveLeak - liveleak
  • MySpace - myspace
  • Revver - revver
  • Veoh - veoh
  • Vimeo - vimeo
  • Yahoo - yahoo
  • Youtube - youtube
  • Youtube Custom Player - youtubecp
  • Youtube Playlist - youtubepl

The tags accept a number of parameters. Justification, Width, Aspect Ratio and a text Blurb are all editable on a per tag basis.

[youtube id=gEzm4qMRC54 just=CENTER size=340 ratio=16:9 blurb="This is my test blurb" autoplay=20 ]
[youtube gEzm4qMRC54 ]
[youtube =M5McvNTdEAE,LEFT,340,16:9,This is my test blurb,AUTOPLAY ]

This will embed a youtube video left justified with a width of 340, aspect ratio of 16:9 and the blurb of "This is my test blurb" as its link.

Ordering of these parameters does not matter, and no, its not case sensitive.
