Thanks. The same problem seems to exist elsewhere in the site. For example, I was unable to embed a YouTube video in the Cameras topic although the URL exactly matched the formatting of the example in the error message.
I put in a fix for both YouTube and Vimeo to ignore the www.
Hi there –
Does anyone know if I can post my documentary on D-Word if it's a Dynamo Player? Or is Distrify, Vimeo and YouTube the only options?
We support a wide range of embeds that use the oembed protocol, including Hulu, Flickr, Viddler, and more. As far as I am aware Dynamo does not support this secure and open standard.
Thanks Peter.. so it sounds like the dynamo player won't work here on D-Word.. (right?) (Are you saying Dynamo is not secure?)
I've been meaning to upload it to Distrify anyway..
Thanks so much! I really appreciate the feedback.
Howdy Faith, I couldn't help but respond when I saw your post. We were at FSU together. Sorry I don't have an answer to your question but just wanted to say HI!
I can't speak about the security of Dynamo, but we don't support raw embeds because these are not very secure in a semi-public forum. For a technical explanation see the hidden section...

Hi Jill.. WOW.. this is too cool!! Thanks for your message. I checked out your bio and you're doing some really cool stuff. Who knew you were right down the road from me in Atlanta. I hope you're enjoying NY. Thanks again for reaching out! :)

Ahhhh... okay, Peter. Makes sense now. Thank you for taking the time to explain.
are we allowed to post are availability and/or services on The D-Word? if so, where?
thanks in advance,
Hope I'm not repeating, but haven't found the answer...
I get the digest form of d-word. I've noticed it doesn't include every post from the time since the last digest, sometime half or less. Does this happen to everyone? Is there a fix?
If you've read some posts on the website they are not included in the digest. It only includes posts which are "unread", i.e. the ones that would have blue dots next to them when you come online.
Hmm. I can't tell what's chicken and what's egg. I rarely go to the website except when I think I'm missing something in the digest... But it sounds like anytime I might scroll through a page looking for a post, anything on the open page won't get sent?
If you've opened a topic and have loaded some posts to your browser they are marked as "read". Then those won't show up in your digest. If you want to mark a topic as "unread" click the top right corner of the last post you've read, and then all posts after that will be in your next digest.
I am trying embed a vimeo link to the shameless self promotions section. However I cannot get any vimeo links to work, but youtube links are working.
Thoughts? My link is: http://vimeo.com/29625203.
The error message is this:
"Embed is not a valid video URL. Please use a URL of a YouTube, Vimeo or Distrify page. (e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmciuKsBOi0)"
That's odd. I will look into it!
I got the same error message yesterday trying to post a YouTube video in the Bar & Grill. Daffy Duck awaits you, sir.
In reply to John Burgan's post on Wed 14 Sep 2011 :
can you elaborate on "double posting"? is there a time limit? i posted my availability back in April. can i post it again after a certain period of time?
thanks in advance,
Sure, Michael. We mainly mean posting in two or more topics with the same message within a short period of time (say, a few days). You can, of course, get creative with changing the posts so it doesn't feel like double posting, but you didn't hear that from me.
Hey Doug – I'm trying to post a video in "work in progress". I'm posting the vimeo url (not the code) – but I'm getting an error message that says it's not a valid url.
We have been having a problem with Vimeo's embed API. I'm working on a fix and will post here as soon as it's solved!
Uh Oh. The Doc Bar and Grill is doing that thing again where you can't see the last post.
The farmer and I posted at the same time which caused the space-time continuum to implode.
