Description

Can ZippCast be added to the oEmbed list. It is oEmbed capable. It is getting recognized as a top video sharing alternative platform everyday and many of our users have been asking for WordPress support. It is a bit hard to explain to some of them the technical way of adding support manually so maybe it would be a better option to have it automatically integrated.

The oembed format for a video is like this... EX:
A url to a video is: http://www.zippcast.com/video/8d60b2cbd68729d3620

The oembed url would then be this:
http://www.zippcast.com/oembed?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.zippcast.com%2Fvideo%2F8d60b2cbd68729d3620&format=json

OR

http://www.zippcast.com/oembed?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.zippcast.com%2Fvideo%2F8d60b2cbd68729d3620&format=xml

Thanks for the suggestion, funny2be, but at this time ZippCast is not mainstream enough for oEmbed support to be added to WordPress core.

A good approach would be to create a WordPress plugin which adds oEmbed support for ZippCast and offer this to your users. This also helps us gauge a service's popularity in the future.
