The Sueetie Wall adds embedded media to its growing list of fun features. Video, music, slideshows and more are now displayed and experienced on the page. Here's a screenshot of embedded media on the Sueetie Wall, or experience it yourself at http://sueetie.com/wall.
Adding Embedded Media
To add embedded media on a Sueetie Wall Message, simply enter the URL in your message body, like so.
Determining Embedded Media Urls
All urls entered in the body of a Wall Message (or comment) are automatically converted to live hyperlinks. Sueetie knows which links contain embedded media based on the address excerpts listed in the Sueetie.Config "EmbeddedProviders" property. You can enter as many or as few providers as your particular community requires.
Sueetie uses the Embedly Media Url Provider service to display embedded media. Below is a screenshot of Embedly's current provider list of over 200 services, which continues to grow. To use the Embedly service you will create an account and choose the plan that best suites your community needs, either the free plan or one of the monthly commercial plans. More about Embedly at http://embed.ly.
Managing your Embedly API Key
To use the Embedly service requires sending your API Key with each request of the service. Sueetie takes care of the details for you, with all you needing to do is enter the API Key in your Addon Pack Settings.
The Sueetie Wall with Embedded Media is getting funner and funner. More fun on the way.
