    Hi,

    I tried a video embedder, Simple Video Embedder, but it does not seem to work.

    Do you recommend any good video embedder for Thematic?

    Thank you,
    Robert

  2. I use Viper's Video Quicktags, that works quite well for me

  5. Might be the only one that produces valid XHTML code. Viper is working on the next version that takes the oEmbed codes and make the results valid XHTML code.

  6. It's a pity Embedded Video with Link is no longer supported. I'm not sure if it's valid xHTML output though.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Does anyone have experience with Simple Video Embedder? Apparently, I need to embed the code for it in the Loop but I am not sure where the Loop is in Thematic. It's not in the usual places.

    Thanks,
    Robert

  8. @rlebowitz: Apparently you can just use a short code to embed it on a per-post basis.

    p/s: Hope it works for you on WP 2.9.x as the latest supported version (by the developer) is supposedly for up to 2.8.x.

    Thanks Flick,
    The only thing is I want to post the videos on a static "video" page, and not in my blog, which is the only thing the per-post option lets you do.

    The developer tells me I need to find the Wordpress Loop, but for the life of me, I cannot find it here in Thematic.

    Thanks,
    Robert

  10. I don't know exactly what kind of videos you're trying to embed, but if they are just on YouTube, check out this post:

    Add the code to your functions file, and all you have to do is use a shortcode to embed videos. Works great!
