Wordtube short code for playlist bug.

    Ok so what WTF is going on it’s driving me nuts. With wordtube the shortcode for to display a video is [media = id] right, and it works, and to display a playlist its [playlist id=id]. Both work if using one or the other, but when you want to display a certain media with a certain playlist, nothing works, for example I want

    [media = 5][playlist id=1]

    but it just shows the video related to media 5 then the actual text [playlist id=1] underneath? I’ve tried combinations like

    [media = 5 playlist id=1] and [media = 5 + playlist id=1]

    but nothing seems to get both to display as intended. Any ideas?

    No one? seriously I haven’t had any questions answered on the forums for months is everyone dead?

    Works for me I have this:

    [playlist id=1]

    [media id=1]

    What you need to watch out for is the space/layout. If the dimensions of the playlist take half the page for example, or the whole page, this might cover the media player so you won’t see it. Try putting a few returns between the two tages and see if you get to see the media player. For example:

    [playlist id=1]

    [media id=1]

    let me know if this helps- good luck

    I guess in the above the carriage returns were eliminated. what I tried to show is

    [playlist id=1]

    >
    >
    >
    >

    [media id=1]

    (where “>” is hitting enter)

    I have tried many, many things, and run into many many problems, from content not showing up, not uploading, not recognising sizes, and my conclusion is… Wordtube is rubbish, not slagging off the creator or anything but it just doesn’t work like one would expect it to, and would recommend embedding it manually with swfobject.

    Even though this post is very old I felt like posting anyway. After screwing around with this piece of junk for the last few hours. I think James was being kind when he called wordpress rubbish.
