www.youtube.com Or youtube.com? That is the question…

Recently I’ve been getting a lot of support emails for my video plugin from people who are having troubles inserting a video using my plugin, when I’ve subsequently asked them for the video link so that I can give it a go as well, I find that they haven’t really taken note of what I said when I first released my video plugin way back when. And to be fair to them, why should they, I posted it back in September (or something like that), and what’s more, on a different blog. and I’ve never really repeated those instructions, not when version 2 was released and not when version 3 got released, so I can’t blame people for not doing what I originally said.

The original instructions were to take the link from the "share" part of whatever video website you are getting the video from, and not the address bar, for the main reason that I was using those links to validate the video. So what people have been doing is, instead of putting in a video with www.youtube.com in the url, they have been putting youtube.com and so my plugin has been giving them an error and saying it’s not a valid url, even though it clearly was. It has always been my intention to change this and make it work regardless of the www. or not, and in hindsight, I should have put this in the original release of V3, but in all honesty, I forgot!

So, now I have updated the video plugin (v3.0.1) so it doesn’t matter whether your video url has www. or not, for any of the supported video sites, and as always is available to download from Live Gallery.

One final thing, I have noticed that due to the changes in policy at the moment from the Soapbox team, using the feature that puts the video name underneath the video will always return "Soapbox on MSN Video Beta", this is because the site now requires you to log in to actually get any information other than the embedding of the video. There is simply no workaround for this, sorry.

    Live Gallery only works with writer if your browser is set to en-us. There is a link on the side of my blog with instructions on how to sort this.SL
