This package provides TinyMCE visual editor support for 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 API.

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

  • video sharing sites: Youtube,, Vimeo,
  • audio streaming services: Grooveshark, SoundCloud,
  • image/photo sticks: Flickr
  • other: GoogleMaps, Facebook, Twitter

This product was developed by for Plone collective, sponsored by Headnet company


To embed media from the embedly-supported external resource to Plone:

  1. Go to the object's edit form, select some text and choose "Embedly link" style for it

  1. The text should now look like linked. TinyMCE makes the whole passage linked, so keep in mind that the whole passage will later be substituted with embedded media.
  2. Select this text again and go to Insert link to insert the URL to the desired object on the external service.

  1. Save this page. Now when rendered, there will be "preview" from service inserted instead of the linked text. For example: video from YouTube:
