Update: The latest beta of the Anarchy Media player can be downloaded here, and you might be happy to know it works with WPMu 2.6—huge thanks go to IndyMedia for the tip in the comments below.
Has anyone seen this yellow button? I have been waiting patiently for what seems like months for the little yellow Anarchy button to appear in my Rich Text Editor for WP & WPMu version 2.5+, but no no avail. So as we are getting ready to upgrade UMW Blogs, I was wondering if anyone found a solution. I looked here, here, and here, but all active questions and development seem at a stand still. This is a bummer for me, because the Anarchy Media Player is without question the easiest and quickest way to insert all kinds of video and audio by simply copying and pasting a link. It helped make the overhead for including media into posts and pages seamless, one of the strongest selling points for WPMu on campus. Anyone figure out a workaround, or have the quick code to make it a tag? I imagine it can be done because the plugin still works if you use the Media button in the code/html view of the text editor.
It’s gone away, and the default Add media option in WPMu 2.6 visual text editor only has the gray asterisk sans the image, video, and music icons, which I added through this hack here (though I am beginning to wonder why because the video and music icons don’t do much good because all they do is provide a link—they don’t embed anything).
And while I was able to get Viper’s Quicktags Plugin for YouTube and various other video services working with a hack (thanks Luke), it messes with the visual text editor to such a degree that it almost becomes too much labor in the long run. Has anyone else experienced these issues? Moreoever, has anyone else found a solution?
