    Can the author or anyone else tell me how to embed Flash .flv files into a custom field template?

    What I need is, for example, to get the ViperĀ“s Video Quicktags working inside the Custom Field Template

    What i did to embed flash files (swf, not flv) but i think you could do the same with another plugin for FLV.

    i use SWFObj plugin to embed flash objects in my posts.

    I have a custom post type named 'produit'. I made a custom template for it with the following field to upload file :

    type = file
    mediaPicker = true
    mediaLibrary = true
    alias = Visuel carrousel

    I create a single-produit.php to display my 'produit' posts where i wrote in these lines :

    //give me the attachement id
    $idvc = do_shortcode('[cft key=VCarrousel]');
    //if it's an image, display it in 160x160
    if (wp_attachment_is_image($idvc)) {
      echo wp_get_attachment_image($idvc , 'attachment-160x160' ) ;
    else {
      //check if it's a flash file from the mime type
      if (preg_match('@(shockwave|flash)@i',get_post_mime_type($idvc))) {
        echo do_shortcode('[swfobj src="'. wp_get_attachment_url($idvc) . '" dynamic_embed="true" play="false"]');

    I think you could use the Flash Video Player plugin instead of SWFObj and modify the above code to match the fvp shortcode.

    Good luck !
