Bright Cove Video Support

It would be very nice if BrightCove (the leading corporate video provider - and what Slate.com and Reuters use for their videos) was supported in Discourse the way that Youtube was supported:

Can you provide example URLs from Slate and Reuters that you think should work?

Embed codes are

<object type='application/x-shockwave-flash' data='http://www.reuters.com/resources_v2/flash/video_embed.swf?videoId=286616623&edition=BETAUS' id='rcomVideo_286616623' width='460' height='259'> <param name='movie' value='http://www.reuters.com/resources_v2/flash/video_embed.swf?videoId=286616623&edition=BETAUS'></param> <param name='allowFullScreen' value='true'></param> <param name='allowScriptAccess' value='always'></param> <param name='wmode' value='transparent'></param> <embed src='http://www.reuters.com/resources_v2/flash/video_embed.swf?videoId=286616623&edition=BETAUS' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' allowfullscreen='true' allowScriptAccess='always' width='460' height='259' wmode='transparent'></embed> </object>

And

<object id="flashObj" width="940" height="528" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,47,0"><param name="movie" value="http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9?isVid=1&isUI=1" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" /><param name="flashVars" value="videoId=732529077001&linkBaseURL=http%3A%2F%2Fsupport.brightcove.com%2Fen%2Fvideo-cloud%2Ftraining-videos%2Fnavigating-video-cloud-studio&playerID=1134499652001&playerKey=AQ~~,AAAABLsQgFE~,jGXrTxeVLAThSRK-KmTFok8sEm6B69RT&domain=embed&dynamicStreaming=true" /><param name="base" value="http://admin.brightcove.com" /><param name="seamlesstabbing" value="false" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="swLiveConnect" value="true" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9?isVid=1&isUI=1" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" flashVars="videoId=732529077001&linkBaseURL=http%3A%2F%2Fsupport.brightcove.com%2Fen%2Fvideo-cloud%2Ftraining-videos%2Fnavigating-video-cloud-studio&playerID=1134499652001&playerKey=AQ~~,AAAABLsQgFE~,jGXrTxeVLAThSRK-KmTFok8sEm6B69RT&domain=embed&dynamicStreaming=true" base="http://admin.brightcove.com" name="flashObj" width="940" height="528" seamlesstabbing="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" swLiveConnect="true" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></embed></object>

Neither of these is particularly friendly to embedding. The embed option for the latter, when selecting WordPress, forces you to log in!

Bummer… Thanks for your efforts. Sounds like both of these sites are not too socially savvy. Oh Well…
