collective.embedly

This package provides TinyMCE visual editor support for embed.ly service: videos, images and other rich media files can be inserted to Plone from different services through one API. The approach here is to use the Transform machinery to replace the URL with embed code by calling the embed.ly API.

There are 204 services so far that support embedly service, such as:

  • video sharing sites: Youtube, Blip.tv, Vimeo, TED.com
  • audio streaming services: Grooveshark, SoundCloud, last.fm
  • image/photo sticks: Flickr
  • other: GoogleMaps, Facebook, Twitter

This product was developed by http://quintagroup.com for Plone collective, sponsored by Headnet company http://headnet.dk/.
