Hello, everyone. The new Wetpixel embeds videos and pictures very differently than does the old one. There is no more need to use bbcode (bbcode for images will still work, but bbcode for video embeds will no longer work). To embed, just paste the URL into the body. We currently support:

  • jpg
  • gif
  • png
  • YouTube
  • Google Video
  • MySpace Video
  • GameTrailers
  • Flickr Image Set
  • MP3
  • Vimeo
  • Lytro living pictures
  • Flickr Video (removed 2/25/13)
  • Windows Media Player (hosted .wmv files)  

I'd love to support Flickr images, as well, but their embeds are a little more complicated. I have to give it another try.

 

Any other embed desires?

I wish! Smugmug has a bunch of IDs in its URL, and some of the code used in the embed is not discoverable by URL.

 

Here's a typical URL:

 

http://photos.echeng.com/Prints/Print-Sales/3381454_KFBCGG#!i=189233567&k=2GxQNf6

 

... and how it wants to be embedded:

 

<a href="http://photos.echeng.com/Prints/Print-Sales/3381454_KFBCGG#!i=189233567&k=2GxQNf6&lb=1&s=A" title="Juvenile loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) being released into the wild in Palm Beach, Florida"><img src="http://photos.echeng.com/Prints/Print-Sales/i-2GxQNf6/2/M/echeng10082-M.jpg" title="Juvenile loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) being released into the wild in Palm Beach, Florida" alt="Juvenile loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) being released into the wild in Palm Beach, Florida"></a>

 

I don't see the filename ("echeng10082-M") in the URL, so I don't think I can do automatic embedding.

Oh well it was worth asking.  I guess it works for the ADVrider.com forum as that site was created by the Smugmug people

Yeah. Well, if I hack something that uses the Smugmug API, it may be possible. Do you have a link to a post with a URL-embedded Smugmug picture on that forum? Maybe there's another way.

Oh. You can always use the standard image bbcode to embed things. That is no problem. But I can't get enough information from the main URL to auto-embed.

Good to have an upgrade. Thanks. But this means that every bit of video that has ever been posted/embedded here now no longer displays?

That is true. I'll add to my list a TODO item to go back and revive all of them.

...I'd love to support Flickr images, as well, but their embeds are a little more complicated. I have to give it another try.

 

Any other embed desires?

I noticed that if you link to the 'set' link in Flickr, it shows up automatically as a flash-based slide show here.  Just checked and one I posted like that before the migration still works.  I think Flickr is just fine, with this.


Current rig: Sony SLT-alpha55 in Ikelite housing, Sigma 105mm f2.8 DC Macro w/ Ike 5505.58 flat port or Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM behind UWCamStuff custom 5" mini-dome. Dual INON z240 Type IVs triggered with DS51 for TTL mimicry, or DS51 alone with home-made ringflash assy for macro.

 

Topside, unhoused: Sony SLT-alpha99, Sigma 150-500mm + 1.4TC (Saving for Sony 70-400 G2), Sigma 15mm diagonal fish, Sony 24-70mm f2.8 CZ, Tamron 180mm f2.8 Macro...all the gear and nary a clue...

I've removed the Flickr video embed. The regexp system here for matching is a bit weird, and I can't find a way to match only embedded video while leaving other Flickr links alone. So your Flickr URLs should all work again without creating the empty embed. Flickr sets still work.

Imageshack?

I'm not sure anyone uses it, except me...

 

Edit: Thanks for the site by the way.
