I'm currently building http://podcast.com with a load of features such as user playlists and podcast directory and feed navigating/playing widgets.
I have seen various companies have been able to provide simple 'shortcodes' enabling WordPress.com users to post various widgets and objects in their posts (usually Flash audio/video players etc.) and I was wondering if anyone could shed any light on what I would need tp provide to enable a simple shortcode from our system at podcast.com
I can easily create a short id/url to use for these to enable something like:
[podcast feed:xxxx] - to display a player with recent entries to a feed id (xxxx)
[podcast folder:xxxx] - to display a navigatable podcast directory and feed reader/player for a podcast.com folder id (xxxx)
[podcast playlist:username] - to display a podcast.com user's playlist player
If someone could point me in the right direction to the correct person to talk to about this, I'd be eternally grateful. :)
