    How does this differ from OEmbed picker

    Hi,

    I created a similar package a few years ago : https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/oembed-picker-property-editor/

    The package I created uses the same embed dialog that is used in the rich text editor.

    Does your package use this as well ? Or did you create everything from scratch ?

    Hi Dave,

    I wish I had found your package sooner! I looked for something like this, but only seemed to come across outdated or V6 plugins, so I created my own.

    I created everything from scratch and it's just a regular expression to determine if its YouTube or Vimeo and stores some JSON details. I hadn't thought of using the embed dialog, but sounds like a good idea.

    Hi David,

    Maybe it's because my package isn't clear from the name that you can pick video's.

    But at the time it was the most obvious name for me, because it supports more than just embedding video's from youtube and vimeo. It supports all the Oembed stuff that is currently supported by the embed dialog in Umbraco. For instance embedding flickr feeds.

    Hey David,

    Coming up with a name is sometimes the hardest part ;)

    Thankfully, I think our packages will end up in sightly different directions. My next step is to add the ability to search and pick from videos from your own private Vimeo (and YouTube if possible) account. I haven't quite figured out the neatest Umbraco looking way to do this as yet.

    I tried your package out and it would have been perfect for the project that I originally needed it for!
