Hello,

I am trying to post the following embed code from ESPN. This is their script not mine. How do I get this to show as the video. See http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=14649630 if you click on the wheel looking icon next to the full screen box, it will show the share box, you click on that and it provides the code above.

I've tried, ubb, ubb and html and just html with no success.

Appreciate any help.

As Ruben pointed out, you'll need to create a custom media tag for video from ESPN, if you look through the javascript kludge you can see the video id which is the same as the "clip" id in the URL, these are what you'd adjust by using one of the default media tags as a guide.

I believe ESPN is one of those sites that block people from embedding their feeds outside of their website; you're more than welcome to test (heck, even placing that code on a simple .html page in your webspace to see if it'll load) before investing any time in trying to embed it.

Just fyi,
I tried using html and using embed and iframe tags in lieu of script as you tried.
But it shows I need a plugin without any notation of what plugin I need so I suspect that as Gizmo stated espn may have a propriety player.

Thanks for your replies.

I figured it out. You have to choose HTML.

When doing the preview, it won't show the video at all. However, I was curious what would show if I submitted it anyway and the video was there.

Not sure why in preview mode it doesn't show.

I figured when it didn't show anything, there wouldn't be anything to see if you hit enter. Guess I should have tested that theory before asking but preview mode has always done what it's intended to do.

Thanks again.

If you intend on allowing HTML posting, please only do so for your admin group; it's dangerous to allow everyone to post raw HTML.

This post has a JavaScript alert in it, which any user capable of posting HTML will be able to do. This just shows a possible annoyance, let alone them posting a single table close tag would completely screw up the display where that code is loaded.
