this is very kewl. One thing I notice is that when I post a URL using youtube no problem but post a Google video of the same exact video the Google Video player displays but is not playable. I tried this on FF on Mac and IE on PC same results.

This hint should be added to the main plugin page. :)

EDIT: Game Trailers doesn't work. I'll look why. Seemed to be AME cache issue. I reactivated cache and it works. Now only the size doesn't work, but that belongs to AME itself. Thanks for this plugin!

EDIT #2: The best size for gametrailers <embed> tag is 480x409 (widthxheight). With default settings by your definition it gets resized which looks crap (the width is okay but not the height). Regarding resizing media see also this post at AME main product.

The Google definition is for Google Videos only, so it won't convert videos Google has dragged in or harvested from another video site, like say YouTube or MetaCafe. You would have to use the actually YouTube or MetaCafe link for that.

It is, actually, part of the 2.5 new features list

2.5 is a pretty major upgrade from the 2.0 series and adds the following functionality to 2.0:
  • New in Beta 3 - Validation ability. This will help prevent media being embedded that can not be embedded (i.e. youtube videos that the author has stipulated can not be shown off of youtube). This option requires the extraction option to be turned on and a valid validation regexp. I have included one in the default youtube version. When a video on you tube gets embedded, but the author doesnt allow embedding, a link (with icon) is shown instead.

It's still not embedding Daily motion videos for me.

I dont think its suppose to do this, but when you click on that Amazon Thumbnail, it takes you to a page saying:

No Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator

I figured it would make the image larger or just redirect me to the page they got it from.

For those having the linking problem with Amazon (Thumbnails), I have a temporary fix for you until the variable problem in AME can be pinpointed. It will not convert titles properly and will just read Amazon (Thumbnails) or whatever you've named it in the AME CP, but it will properly convert your URLs.

NOTE: If you need to add your own affiliate ID tag you must go in and change each instance of ?tag=citofgamonlco-20 to your own affiliate ID. There are three. If not, you won't hurt my feelings leaving it in. ;)

Oh, remember to delete your old one.

it worked for me.... almost ;)

it worked in the sense that it made a link properly, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Apple-iPod-cla...fullmailbox-20

but... if i went to say, the first page of slickdeals.net, and got this link from them:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...X0DER&v=glance

if i posted that link on my site, it would convert to:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...fullmailbox-20

which takes me to the main page of amazon, having removed the asin number.

i'm keeping this definition active for now, but any ideas on that will be appreciated.

(and yes, i realize it says 'temp fix', im just trying to troubleshoot)

thanks for the rapid reply and fix DJ :D

See if using this as your Replacement HTML helps at all. It shouldn't be stripping out the ASIN number.

You know, looking at the RegEx a little more closely know, I see this is one I didn't originally make. It's a little different then the way I would normally go. Let me see if I can come up with something a little different and maybe this will address the parsing problem we've been having.

Link me to a couple of examples so I can see what the problem is.
