Does VidEmbed allow site administrators to embed without having access to unfiltered HTML?
Posted 03 August 2011 - 01:46 PM
Thanks for posting the question. I tested this on a multisite and it works. Basically, VidEmbed [even though the name says "Embed"] actually uses shortcodes to embed the videos in posts/pages. Therefore, anyone with posting abilities [unless I'm mistaken or your university's multisite has specifically modified this] can use any shortcode that's available. So VidEmbed should technically work in your case.
This is what I did:
1 :As the site admin, created another site admin as a test [just to double confirm the status]. I then logged in as the site admin.
2 :Went to add a new page.
3 :Clicked the "VidEmbed" button above the editor.
4 :It asked me for the video to insert and some settings I wanted for it.
5 :The final full entire code [shortcode] it put in the page was this
[ pb _ vidembed title="Funny cats" caption="caption of cats" url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IytNBm8WA1c" type="yt" w="480" h="385" ]There was nothing else in the post. [I put space in the beginning and between pb and _ and vidembed wording myself so that it doesn't get parsed in this post].
6 :I published the page.
7 :It worked. The page showed the video without any issues.
Does that help?
