A little about me...
I joined VideoSift as IT Director / Software Architect / Systems Administrator in mid-2006. It has been my online home away from home ever since.

In 2006 I coined the acronym LMFAHS. You should tag all your funny videos with it. LMFAHS in meatspace.

In 2008 I coined the term Escalopter to describe a person rotating like a helicopter blade on escalator handrails. |

Hi Lucky!

The url for the video is:

(warning, may need to find a barf bag before viewing!)

and the embed they kick out is:

<div id="fb-root"></div> <script>(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = "//"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>
<div class="fb-post" data-href="" data-width="466"><div class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore"><a href="">Post</a> by <a href="">Sarah Palin</a>.</div></div>

I read elsewhere that using an embed like this should work:

<object width=&#8221;400&#8243; height=&#8221;224&#8243; >
<param name=&#8221;allowfullscreen&#8221; value=&#8221;true&#8221; />
<param name=&#8221;allowscriptaccess&#8221; value=&#8221;always&#8221; />
<param name=&#8221;movie&#8221; value=&#8221;;/>
<embed src=&#8221;; type=&#8221;application/x-shockwave-flash&#8221;
allowscriptaccess=&#8221;always&#8221; allowfullscreen=&#8221;true&#8221; width=&#8221;400&#8243; height=&#8221;224&#8243;>

but I'm either doing it wrong or it doesn't work anymore.

P.S. the code gets translated to shit when I submit it to you in this comment but if you go the referenced webpages below you can see what I actually pasted here.
Thanks for your help!

Huh... Is that similar to MySpace or maybe Friendster? It should be expected that some lesser-known websites wouldn't be on our list of accepted video hosts.

@speechless - Can you PM me the embed code you're trying to use? Please enclose it in code tags so it will be properly formatted.

I just submitted a new video and it works. Thanks!

I did however notice that the length of the video is not automatically set when you validate the embed so I checked and it's also possible to get the duration of the video through the new api.

Good point. I've updated our thumbnail getter.

Do you have an example Vimdeo video to test on?

siftbot says...

You just received a gift of 3 Power Points from an anonymous meatbag. Spend them well, and make your generous benefactor proud.

oritteropo says...

Thanks for the *promote

So does that make it something to look forward to in retirement?

lucky760 said:

Me like.

Totally seems like something I'd have done when I was younger and had more time in the day.


oritteropo says...

Sorry again

I only thought of doing a dupeof after I'd gone to bed.

mintbbb said:

EDIT: Problem solved!

Hihi, a slight problem. I had discarded a video, and resubmitted it with a new name. Oritteropo promoted the discarded one, so now I have 2 of the same ones in the queue, and I can't do a dupeof because they are both mine.

Could you please do some magic so I can keep the promote and the combined votes! I don't care which one stays (title-wise)
