Right, you can now embed all of the following...

Amazon, Bandcamp, BBC News, Dailymotion, Facebook, Flickr, Garmin Connect Map, Gfycat, Google Document, Google Sheets, Google+, Hulu, Imgur, Instagram, Kickstarter, LiveLeak, Livestream, Mixcloud, Reddit comment, RideWithGPS, SoundCloud, Strava, TED Talks (lol), Tumblr, Twitch, Twitter, Ustream, VEVO,Vimeo, Vine, XboxClips (lolz), YouTube.

(BBC News, and Google Document are playing up at the moment, so will not be available until I fix them).

Feel free to test these out in this thread so we can see them all working.

I will be testing the Livestream embedding with a GoPro and an iPhone over the next few days to see how good the live direct streaming is. If it works, this will open the door for all manner of live streaming of rides, etc. which we can develop over the coming months into something excellent.

Amazon

Just find what you want, and copy the entire URL (even if it is massive).

Takes a while to get the image from Amazon, so give it some time.

Google Sheets.

The spreadsheet needs to be public, or at least shared with the people you want to see it.


If permissions exist, you can edit the spreadsheet from within the forum (yeah, I know, that is nuts). Live collaborative editing is also totally possible, with an unlimited number of people.

This could be used to share highly detailed training programs, diet plans, or whatever else you use spreadsheets for. Also works in Private Messages.

Hmm. I nudged a scrollbar and was promptly told:

annoying box said:
問題が発生しました

サーバーでエラーが発生しました。[OK]を押してシートを更新してください
Whether I clicked the blue "OK" or the "X", the annoying box remained (and still remains). (This is up-to-date Firefox under Mint LMDE, if this matters.)

No error here (Windows7 / Chrome).

Can you try it in another browser (Chromium), and let me know. Cheers.

^Streaming live now. There is about 8-10 seconds delay from Ustream to here (via desktop). About 17 seconds on iPhone over Wifi, and the same over 4G.

Adverts play at the start of the stream. There is no way to prevent them, so just let them play through, then the streaming starts proper.

It should be noted that if you embed your own UStream video into here, every time you go live from your channel, your video will play from where it is embedded (if the enduser clicks the play button, of course).

Keep that in mind if you integrate UStream into your Grindr / Chatroulette lifestyle.

Ah yes, I should have thought of that before. In Chromium, there's just an expanse of white where the spreadsheet should be: there's no spreadsheet at all. (And the Ustream one is just a black rectangle, whereas it's fine in Firefox. Well well, what a handsome fellow you are!)

Do you have a Google account and are you logged in to it? (That might not be the issue, but it could be...)

I suspect you are having Linuxy issues with it, which we can defo see to fixing, but go through the obvious stuff first.
