I forgot to ask this too:

Do you plan to do the same for other video sites, like say dailymotion?

| Hi,
| 
| Sometime ago, at IMC Irl, we pondered about allowing embedded Youtube video to be published but we worried about allowing users to publish with various HTML tags to do this which would be a big security hole.
| 
| However following an exchange of ideas with Bristol IMC, the folks there came up with the brilliant suggestion of just getting the public to submit the youtube video id (the part after =v  as in say http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHXdS9XYVs8  ) and let Oscailt generate the associated embedded HTML.
| 
| Well, I have implemented and tested this and it works fine. Though, it is not yet live on the Irl IMC. 
| 
| It is planned to checkin the code changes to CVS in the next few days. Unfortunately over the past 10 months there have been a lot of changes submitted to the Oscailt CVS, and some of these other files would need to be checked out to keep everything compatible. In other words, we really need to do a release.
| 
| BTW, for a list of some recent changes made since Jan 07 to Oct 9th, see the file http://oscailt.cvs.sourceforge.net/*checkout*/oscailt/oscailt/releasenotes.txt?revision=1.5

| P.S. The above Youtube is an interview with Richard Heinberg about Peak Oil. It's a great interview.
