    Hello,

    I was a big and happy fan of AMP (Anarchy Media PLugin), but this plugin seems to be abandoned ...
    So, i'm looking for something to EASILY embed youtube, dailymotion, etc. videos ; to automatically play mp3 that are uploaded, etc.

    Thanks for your help

    This is what we use although it's only for video:

    For audio we use this one but we've stripped out some of the options so not to confuse folks:

    I created this plugin a few days ago which lets ajax video search within the wordpress editor. You can then watch videos in a pop up without screen refresh within the editor. It also creates nice embed code.

    I created a version for Wordpress Mu. The Mu version download link is included on the above forum post.

    honewatson, does this plugin edit the filter from kses.php to allow embedded code? Or is the plugin just extracting video id and use its own hardcoded embed code?

    Highly recommended (mp3/flv player):

    Also, try visit brightcove.com... although I had some difficulties with embeding their player code inside wordpress. Maybe someone developed some kind of plugin

    @tdjcbe
    Does this audio player work with WPMU RC.1?

    suleiman, the plugin extracts the video id and then creates xhtml compliant code like so :

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" style="width:425px; height:373px;" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/l0tOZRtItlU">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/l0tOZRtItlU" /></object>

    My plugin saves a lot of time. You can basically just watch videos within your wordpress post page until you find one you like. Then when you find it, just copy and paste the code provided. It's all ajax so there is no page refresh.

    It's nice and easy because you do not have to write tags like so:

    [youtube:http://youtube...url]

    That code is provided for you with each video.

    Great job... of course, it would be cool that some other providers are also supported, like; MetaCafe, Brightcove, google Video,...

    Hey Boonika, it works with Google Video, setting it up to work with other provides is no big deal. who are the other main video sites?

    I would suggest looking at anarchy media player honewatson, that'll give you a good idea, but the general gamut are:

    veoh, dailymotion, metacafe, off the top of my head.

    I personally was using anarchy media player until I updated to 1.5 RC. The only one I had good luck with since that upgrading day was Vipers Quicktags plugin (after changing paths to work with WPMU).

    @ Trent,

    I'll second your statement. AMP was working as expected until the 1.5 RC upgrade and then the buttons disappeared from the Visual Editor. So, then I posted about it on the AMP forums with no response.

    I figured I'd wait until the 1.5.1 upgrade to see if this solved the issue, but I've just upgraded to this latest version yesterday and the AMP buttons are still missing. I'm really hoping that there will be an update to AMP or that someone more knowledgeable than me will be able to offer a fix, at least something for me to try.

    My whole MU site is geared toward media creators and having an easy method for my users to add video is essential. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to start the search and testing of different video plugins.

    @ Trent and others,

    You'll be happy to know that AMP has been updated for MU, and I have the new version installed, and everything is working as expected.

    Yippee!

    You can download the new version here...
