embedding



Only the best video ever for the best song ever?! But really, a list of crap we can embed into dreamwidth, whether it's super simple (mostly super simple, thankfully). LIIIKE:

YOUTUBE
instructions here

GOOGLE CALENDAR
here (thanks [plurk.com profile] pixle for the link!)
--- NOTE: If there's no "Embed This Calendar", click the button that says "HTML", it should give you an embedding link. (What I did to test it out)
--- NOTE2: There's a bug with Google Calendar and Dreamwidth right now, but support has a workaround for now:
1. Copy/Paste the embed code.
2. Change the beginning of the url: From "https://calendar.google.com/calendar/rest_of_url_here..." to "https://www.google.com/calendar/rest_of_url_here..."
This should work most of the time until they fix the bugs.

GOOGLE DOCS/SHEETS/SLIDES/ETC
Instructions here in Wordpress's FAQ (wait what). Yes it's practically exactly the same. I tested it with Google Docs, I haven't tested it on Sheets or Slides or whatever else is available yet.

PLURK WIDGET
Go to "Customize Profile" or "Profile Settings", and then Widget (or use that link). After that, choose your options and then copy/paste the code into a post.
--- NOTE: It's useless if your timeline is on private cos the plurks won't show up, just a note saying that your settings are on private. I tested it with a public and private account and they both work (aside from private being switched off).
--- NOTE2: It uses div codes, BUT you can actually put the widget onto your profile. Somehow it still works and I ain't complaining.

MUZICONS
Go here, customise, copy/paste code into post/profile. Works for both, you can see it in action on this comm's profile.

VINE
Go to Vine, pick the Vine you want to embed, click "Embed", choose your size options and etc, and just copypaste the code into a post. To embed, see the vertical line of dots for the menu, it's got the option there, or from something that looks like < >.
--- It also works on profiles.

8TRACKS
After you pick an 8tracks you like, click any variation of "Share", and then over to find "Embed Player" (could look like < > ). Choose your options, copy/paste the code, slap it into a post or profile, it works in both.

DAILYMOTION
Click "Export" and there's an embed code. Choose options and then just copy and paste here in a post or profile.

VIMEO
Click on Share (which could also look like that paper airplane thing on the video) and then copy the embed code before pasting into a post or profile!

SOURCE OF SPARKLE TEXT
because a friend asked and I stumbled across them again. Here?!?!?!

NOTE: Two things at the moment! Since end of November 2015:
- If you use Beta posting, the site embed code will vanish even if the code is working. You can hit edit and save, and the code will still work even if it vanished. Yes strange.
- Google Calendar isn't working for new embeds (it does for old ones?) It looks like no one knows why so support tickets will have to be sent in this case. UPDATE: Look at Google Calendar embed method up there for the workaround provided by Dreamwidth support while the bugs are being fixed.

ALWAYS SUBJECT TO UPDATING AS MORE IS DISCOVERED. Tell me your findings. I know there's a lot more I missed and/or having put in yet cos I haven't mucked around with them, like Soundcloud and Spotify (which work)
