The ever increasing number of video services that my plugin supports has just grown again, adding another two to its list: BrightCove and DivShare, these have both been added as requests. Only videos will work from DivShare, so don’t try with MP3 links, it won’t work. It’s at this point with the plugin that I have decided to an extra bit of assistance to the plugin in the form of a quick helper window. It shows you what video services are supported and gives an example of each link type:
This can be got to by clicking the Examples link in the main window:
The other new feature in this version is specific to YouTube videos. Recently they added a related videos bar that appears in embedded videos. There is now an option if you put this in your blog entry to turn it off:
This option is only visible when a YouTube URL is used, otherwise it’s hidden. This option is not one that can be set in the options, and by default is turned on, so if you don’t want it there, you have to turn it off.
This build also comes with a couple of minor bug fixes, and a correction to how Yahoo! videos are dealt with, due to them changing the way they have their URLs. Don’t forget, this now uses the new installation method that my installers use, so if you have a previous version of the plugin, go to C:\Program Files\Windows Live Writer\Plugins and delete the InsertVideo.dll, then run the installer.
As always, you can download the Video Plugin from the Live Gallery.
