Two Updates to Plugins

As you may or may not be aware, Windows Live Writer got updated on Wednesday, but rather than go through the changes here and repeat myself, I’ll simply link back to my post on Liveside. There have been some new APIs released for Writer, but they specifically relate to blog providers and how to get their blog working with some of the features within Writer; nothing has changed with the Plugin APIs though. Or has it? Whilst nothing new has been added, there is one specific thing that has been turned on in the APIs, I’m not going to spoil the surprise as I will be talking about it in my post on Liveside next week.

Anyway, enough of that. The two plugins that have received changes this time around are my Video Plugin (shocker), and rather more surprisingly, the I’m Feeling Lucky Plugin. The Video Plugin now has a margins option in the same way as when you put an image in your blog entry:

Now for the really cool change that I’ve made to the Google I’m Feeling Lucky Plugin  Before, if you clicked on the Insert I’m Feeling Lucky link, you got the little window where you could put all your search details in. Well now, if you highlight some text in the editor, then click the I’m Feeling Lucky link, the highlighted text will automatically get made into an I’m Feeling Lucky link! How cool is that! If you don’t have any text highlighted, you will get the same window you used to get. This can be turned off though, so just go to the options and change it:

So there you have the new changes. One final thing, my Video Plugin is now the second most downloaded Plugin off the Gallery website  The only thing ahead of it is the Blog This for Firefox (which is an MS plugin, so really I don’t think it should count )

    Scøtt – I tried to use your Insert Video Plug-in for WLW to embed video for a WordPress Post. The plug-in did not seem to work correctly, as the video did not show up as embedded in my post.
    I outlined the steps I performed in my post Windows Live Writer – Upload Video plug-in, could you let me know if I am doing something incorrectly. Thanks.

    Hey Thomas – That is probably due to WordPress. Looking at your blog your hosted at which means you can only embedd Dailymotion, Youtube and Google Video but even more important, uses it\’s own technique for that. That will be the reason why Scott\’s plugin doesn\’t work – as that is using the normal embedd procedures.

    It looks like Kris is right. I just created a test hosted WP blog ( and it has done the same as yours Thomas. In the meantime, you can always set the plugin to use an Image + Link, this won\’t let the user watch the video in your blog entry, but will give you a placeholder and they can then go to the video site if need be.Kris, how familiar are you with how WordPress handles embedding the video. Would love some input on how I can improve my plugin to work with this.SL

    Scott – I am hosted at
    To embed video, you need to use their create post interface. You add the URL to the video tab, and then send it to the WordPress magical black box. You are then returned a statement to embed in your post that looks like the following:
    Here is an example of Google embed code –
    I hope this information is helpful. I like the plug-in, I think it is cool – I was just bummed that it didn\’t work.
    Also – did you write the post on Windows Live Writer on I thought it was great. I was really impressed by how thorough you were. I obviously have some work to do on my reviews.
    Keep up the great work.

    Hehe, yes, that was me 🙂 I think I have an idea for the plugin so that it will work with hosted WordPress blogs. Will have to do some research into the codes etc, but watch this space :)SL
