When will wordpress supports Metacafe?

  1. I want to embed video from Metacafe (www.metacafe.com)

    Any ideals?

    Thanks,

  2. did you use the feedback form to make that suggestion?

  3. I don't know about Metacafe, but with YouTube, it's:

    [youtube=THE URL LINK THEY GIVE YOU - NOT THE URL LINK OF THE PAGE]

  4. Looks like they don't have an option to display videos on other sites. At least I don't see any mention of it on their website or in their forums. Looks like videos are only displayed on their website and via their desktop player.

    Took me a few minutes to find stuff over there with all of their spam and folks begging for assistance that go unanswered in their forums.

  5. I'm sure staff heard you the first time. There's no need to open a second thread on the topic. This isn't the spam filled forums that you would find over at Metacafe. You may also want to read my post.

    If you feel strongly about the subject, feel free to drop in a Feedback from your Dashboard.

  6. I second this idea, to get past the embedding problem I'm posting screenshots linked to the metacafe page. 

    I would ask the developers to add the ability to [metacafe=URL]

  7. isoflash, does metacafe allow their videos to be embedded on other sites at all? Best to determine, and communicate, that info before requesting staff look into making this happen.

  8. Yes, they do, raincoaster. Metacafe carries similar philosophy as Revver to encourage posters to upload their own videos. I third the idea to extend support for Metacafe as well as Revver.

  9. It will be grat with Metacafe support as all of my videos are on metacafe due to best conversion from 3gp... I hope that this will happen soon...

  10. I'd like get Yahoo Video support also..

  11. You'll have to send a feedback in to request that then.

  12. Still would be nice if someone mentioned if Metacafe supports offsite display of videos. Last time I checked, they didn't. They probably do and I'm just missing it though.

    *sigh* Would be nice if folks actually read the threads that they posted in but I guess we can't always have what we want.

  13. just sent a feedback message requesting it. Drmlike, yes Metacafe does support offsite display. You just click on the "Blog/Embed Player" button to get the <embed src="http://www link

  14. Thanks. :)

    Latest on Metacafe possibilities?

    I hope you have read this thread and understand that there is no update here and is not likely to be one. The process is to send in a feedback to staff listing the reasons your want the feature you are requesting. From there staff will look over the requests, make the decisions and respond to the requests as indicated by the decisions made.

  18. At least they asked instead of "weighed in" asking for support.

    Although bumping after only 27 minutes isn't real cool.

    Uh, I don't understand either one of your replies.

    Timethief, the last comment I read was dated April 11th, 2007, which is why I asked if there was any progress in this direction. Considering the growing popularity of Metacafe and already made ability to add YouTube and Google Videos, I simply assumed that Metacafe is probably somewhere on a list.

    From the previous comments I saw nothing that said that this was unlikely to be an update. If you know this to be true, please let me know as I will have to make contingency plans.

    drmike, that second came out of confusion due to the fact that there are two threads about this topic I believe. My bad.

    Thanks.

  20. There is no update. The process is to send in a feedback to staff listing the reasons you want the feature you are requesting. From there staff will look over the requests, make the decisions and respond to the requests as indicated by the decisions made. The long and short of it is that if you want to influence the decision-making process then you need to communicate with staff.

  21. rjbed32, note my avatar. Covers timethief as well. :)

    Please follow the suggestions made in this thread about sending in feedback.

  22. any progress with metacafe? i miss this too!

  23. If there had been a progress report it would have been posted into one of the metacafe threads. Please follow the suggestions made in this thread about sending in a "support" to staff during weekdays and during support hours http://wordpress.com/contact-support/
