oEmbed
G'day Guys,

We now support oEmbed

URL Scheme: http://*.smugmug.com/*
API Endpoint: http://api.smugmug.com/services/oembed/
Sample: http://api.smugmug.com/services/oemb...25787395_hQSj9

Please let me know if there are any issues.

Cheers,

David

Is there a way to define a video SIZE to embed? What about making the custom poster frame appear on the embedded page?

Specifically, I'm trying to embed (into wordpress 3) a 640x480 video that's here: http://ultrasomething.smugmug.com/Mu...97237414_koDoa

Since Smugmug now supports oembed, I simply enter that url into wordpress, but I get a tiny thumbnail video embedded (rather than 640x480)

When I try to embed any of the available direct links, like http://ultrasomething.smugmug.com/Mu...414_koDoa-M-LB, I still get ONLY thumbnail sized videos showing in my wordpress page.

To make matters worse, I've assigned a custom poster frame that doesn't actually appear when I try to embed the video in this manner...

Any helpful pointers? Thanks.

One more question: Does this work on iPad or iPhone... When I look at a page using the oembed method on my iPad, I see NO video at all.

oEmbed currently serves up flash which obviously won't work on iPads or iPhones. I'll investigate what I can do to fix this.

Cheers,

So let me get this straight. If I wanted to embed a video into this forum post, I could do so using oembed?

Hmm... maybe it's a Safari thing. Definitely not getting this result here.

Unfortunately I had to go with Vimeo (because of this issue and the whole Flash thing, which Vimeo's embed code works around). As always, I prefer to use smugmug when possible. Looking forward to seeing the embed code get better cross-browser/platform capability. Thanks for the reply.

Oh, I get it now. Unless this forum can parse the response to embed the video, it wouldn't show anything. I was looking for an easier way for my users to embed videos in sites that don't allow html.

Is there anyway to use oEmbed to grab the embed code of the video and actually create a simple html off-site?

Is there a way to specify height and width with oembed links on a wordpress.com site. I've got the video embed working in posts but I'm trying to insert smaller versions of the video within a table.

OEMBED - will it do gallery slideshows?
Hi there!

New to this stuff. Generally, just a paster. I have another website (for a non-profit) (not smugmug). I am currently using one of smugmugs methods so viewers of that site can see images from MY smugmug page. The non-profit site and page for the images is here:
http://www.hofwyl.org/index.php/gallery

Sometimes this method is slow to add the images to the 12 image box section. It seems kinda klutsy.

I have forgotten the call I used to do that (I'd have to look at the code there)...not important I think.

I have some portfolio galleries that auto run a slideshow of the gallery here on smugmug. I am wondering if I can use oembed to point to a "slideshow" gallery and have it work? OR does oembed only work for delivering a single image?

If maybe yes, then I am thinking of making a smart gallery using images from several Hofwyl galleries and have that smart gallery set to be a slideshow. Not that you need it, but here are my smugmug Hofwyl galleris:
http://www.southeasternphotography.c...wyl-Broadfield

Thanks,

ADDITIONAL DATA added - this is what is being used in an html window on the Hofwyl site:

<object classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="500" height="500"><param name="movie" value="http://cdn.smugmug.com/swfs/badge/flashbadge.swf?useLargeImages=true&nickName=Southe astern-Photography&feedType=&BadgeHost=cdn.smugmug.com&al bumID=10564416&albumKey=jYF56&width=500&height=500 &gridSpacing=1&gridColumns=4&gridRows=3&background =%23000000&preloaderColor=&preloaderGlow=&gridDela y=5&slideshowDelay=3&order=norandom&forceSize=&sho wCaptions=true&introMode=fadein&aboutlink=&shareli nk=&albums="><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://cdn.smugmug.com/swfs/badge/flashbadge.swf?useLargeImages=true&nickName=Southe astern-Photography&feedType=&BadgeHost=cdn.smugmug.com&al bumID=10564416&albumKey=jYF56&width=500&height=500 &gridSpacing=1&gridColumns=4&gridRows=3&background =%23000000&preloaderColor=&preloaderGlow=&gridDela y=5&slideshowDelay=3&order=norandom&forceSize=&sho wCaptions=true&introMode=fadein&aboutlink=&shareli nk=&albums=" width="500" height="500" wmode="transparent" allowScriptAccess="always" ></embed></object>

I tried replacing this with the "example" at the top of this thread. It seemed like the other system didn't understand it and printed out "most" of the code as simple text. I then put it back the way it was.

G'day Troup,

We recently added a slideshow representation for a gallery link, so if you provide a gallery url (minus the photo portion) like this...

http://cmac.smugmug.com/SmugMug/Supp...2504559_TrBCmb

The oEmbed call will return a flash slideshow.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

David

This sounds GREAT! However, I seem to have no idea how to implement this. I have searched and read up on SmugMugs OEMBED and from the OEMBED site. I cannot figure out what to do. What am I suppose to do with the ENDPOINT code? I have tried putting in the url to no gain in the other website (not SmugMug). I really do not know what I am doing. Can I get a step by step of what goes where? The "current" gallery I want to use for the slideshow on the other system is:

http://www.southeasternphotography.c...5238345_TRz4Ts

I put this in the other site:

http://cmac.southeasternphotography....5238345_TRz4Ts

I cannot get the other system to even acknowledge I have an url there even though it is an html box I am entering it into. Note the description way up above under ADDITIONAL DATA in the previous post of what I am using now in the other system's html box. Do I need an <object> line of something?

Does any of this help you?

THANK YOU!!! I've been trying to figure a good way to do this without having to use Gigya code in my wordpress.com blogs (a pain because of the html tag limitations) I've started a reference blog just so I can keep up with what I can and can't do with smugmug in wordpress.com.
http://smugmughugs.wordpress.com

I'm going to go give it a try now!
