http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/EmbedPluginDev: This plugin should actually be renamed to something that conveys what it embeds. Something like EmbedMediaPlayerPlugin


The balance of opinion in the topic seems to be in favour of removing it.

Martin, could you give us some feedback please? Is this plugin required, and if it is, can you rename it please?


No, not remove, but obsolete the plugin on twiki.org if that makes sense. Also, if the plugin is renamed, the orginal name should be obsoleted because links from the outside point to it.

Hi. Thanks to Crawford for emailing me on this.

On inspection, I agree that it is misnamed. If I recall, I named it this way as I didn't see the point in having 12 different EmbedXPlugins - rather better to have one plugin that could have 12 different types of embed.


OK, so some day someone will do something about it, but it doesn't look like Martin is going to help. I think this is Low priority. Changing status to Confirmed.


I have updated TWiki:Plugins.ObjecPlugin to be buildContrib basaed and added an EMBED tag for compatibility. TWiki.Plugins.EmbedPlugin is now deprecated, and points to TWiki:Plugins.ObjectPlugin.
