Issues with embedded video

March 27, 2009 in Internet

It appears that the TinyMCE editor which ships with WordPress 2.7 does nasty things to HTML in a misguided attempt to be helpful.  In particular, it strips "embed" tags from embedded media (such as flash video), leaving only the object tag. The end result of this particular example is that embedded video shows up fine in TGR's RSS feed but not in Google Reader.  To my Google Reader readers (including myself), I apologize... I'll be exploring a workaround.  In the meantime, if you ever see me end a sentence with a colon, there's probably a video there.
