At the moment we have public urls exposed for assets uploaded in our
Digital Asset Management (DAM) system. We are considering adding a
couple of new features on top of it -
1. Exposing embed html for assets, which users can directly copy to
their webpages, blogs etc. Picasa, Flickr among others have this
2. Second feature will be similar to this example - a Facebook user
copies a link to Hulu video on his wall and when he posts that, what
is shown is inline video embed and not just a link as posted
originally. According to what I read, here Hulu is an oEmbed provider
and Facebook an oEmbed consumer. So using that link Facebook fetches
the oEmbed response from Hulu's oEmbed endpoint and dumps the HTML
part on the wall. (Please correct me if I am wrong - Facebook and Hulu
might be just imaginary players here)
For #2, we also want to return custom metadata alongwith actual asset.
I assume that is possible in oEmbed as there is provision to return
custom parameters in the response.
So what I expect from the experienced people out here is -
A. Is my understanding in #2 correct?
B. Can oEmbed help in #1? If not do we need to have our custom
implementation for it? Or is there any other standard/library
available for this scenario?
Nope. You'll need to create your own embed code and display it to your users. However, you can reuse this embed code in your oEmbed API. I haven't worked much with video... anyone else have suggestions for how to make embed code?Leah

Talking about embeds for videos, is it a standard practice to make
videos available in flash format? We allow users of our system to
upload any kind of asset; so videos can be anything - flash, wmv, avi
etc. We can create flash proxies for these. But I wanted to know what
is the accepted way of doing this? And same questions goes with other
types of assets like pdf, doc, ppts, mp3 etc.
