Embedding Playlist from Youtube to WordPress

When you put a series of videos into a playlist on Youtube, you can get an embed code that looks like this –

<pre><iframe width="560" height="315" src=";hl=en_GB&#034; frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></pre>

However, this does not embed into WordPress. You may get the 1st video if you are lucky, but you are more likely to get a message telling you that the video has not uploaded yet.

WordPress has a gigya plugin that handles Flash input – so it will also help when embedding Prezzi’s too.

So, for youtube Playlists, you need this code –

[ gigya src=";fs=1&#034; type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="385" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" ]

And the NUMBER would be replaced with the Playlist number – minus the PL code – giving us

[ gigya src=";fs=1&#034; type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="385" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" ]

Which now looks like this –

So why is this not being covered by the Media? Because it doesn’t fit the current Narrative.
Muslims are bad – see the story this week, covered in all good news shows, on how Muslims are being radicalised in Prison (BBC News – Growing fears over Muslim prison ‘gangs’). So any story that supports this (Radical, Religious Zealots, Violent, Gangs, etc) will be reported – it is easy to report. Read the rest of this entry

Roads Named after Discworld Places

Welcome to Wincanton, twinned with Discworld – This Britain, UK – The Independent

Around 30 prospective residents who buy one of the 212 Wimpey homes due to be completed by July can live on Peach Pie Street or Treacle Mine Road. The idea appears to be paying off for Wimpey already. Two families have pledged to buy homes on those “Discworld” streets before they have even been built. More than 1,000 of the town’s residents voted for the two names from a shortlist of 14 Discworld references suggested by Sir Terry, after Wimpey opened up a public online poll.

This is not Wincanton’s first foray into Sir Terry’s make-believe land. In 2002, it was officially twinned with the fictional city of Ankh-Morpork from the novels, the first town in the world to link up with a fictional place.

Note the comments – actually, it’s not that nice a place to live, and a lot of the local council really don’t like involvement in this kind of thing – ie anything from the 20th or 21st century…

Keep British jobs british?????

Sellafield workers join wildcat strike action over foreign labour | Politics |

Unions claim British workers were denied any opportunity to apply for the posts. Lord Mandelson, however, said the contract at the centre of the dispute had originally been awarded to a British firm, but that the company had failed to fulfil it so it was given to an Italian rival, which then drew on its own workforce.

[Lord Mandelson] added that the contract at the centre of the dispute was originally awarded to a British firm but it did not fulfil it so it was given to an Italian company which then drew on its own workforce.

Yes, I did hear it right first time.

So, we are striking because a French Firm is employing Italian workers?

Lawyers have been called in to help resolve a row about floral displays in Wincanton.

I really like the quote –

“There is a big difference between deliberate concealment and a unintentional misunderstanding. The idea is to iron out these bugs in-house.”

Oh, my speeding ticket was unintentional. I didn’t mean to do it. I was only on the mobile at the time because they rang me – so it’s their fault I hit the child… etc, etc.

In the eyes of the law, ignorance is not an excuse. Especially when you are in the public service.
