My name is Micha Kaufman, from Pixiesoft. Small Israeli software company.

Few years ago we made a very nice WYSIWG editor, pretty much like CKEditor. we called it "RichtextArea", you can see the demo at: (works under IE only - we're not as good as you are....:-)

(The demo is the only page I can show you, as all other pages are in Hebrew)

I would like to help you to improve your product, by sharing some knowledge we have, and/or ideas to improve your product.

for instance, we've made a very simple (but usfull) button that embed YouTube video. (in the demo you can find this button in the most-right side of the middle buttons row). Click on it, and paste the "embeded code" from any youTube video.

Our code checks that it looks like normal youTube code (and not malicius script), and insert it into the HTML. it also adds "wmode="opaque" to avoid IE bug when the movie is on top of any other element.

This is one of the most wanted features in our editor, and I feel that your tool can be must better with such button, as it's almost perfect except for this one...

It's also very easy to develop, one of the easiest button we created. I can help you if you like.

Thanks, Micha

Hi @havitoosh. That's nice demo.

If you would like to participate in CKEditor project you can always report new bug/feature or attach new plugin ( Any contributions are welcome.

As for this plugin. You think it would be possible to attach code for your youtube plugin to this ticket?

There are two other which perhaps could be used together with this one to create one final plugin - #5184 and #8543

Ideally we should have a single "media" plugin, which accepts input fro several different >providers, like youtube, vimeo, flickr, etc.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
