Get Flickr Videos from URLs with jQuery

Posted in "development"

I liked the little flickr snippet I wrote for embedding galleries from urls so much that I decided to write another flickr centric plugin for grabbing videos from urls. This is one of those features that hasn’t got that much traction but it is pretty neat. Both of these plugin are pretty good for generating media based on user input. For instance, if a user writes a comment and pastes the link to a flickr gallery or video you can scrape the comment for those links and generate the content in the comment.

Note: You will need an flickr API key and secret to use this plugin. You can get an API key by logging into your Yahoo/flickr account and heading here: http://www.flickr.com/services/api/keys/. More information on the flickr API can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/services/api/
