[wp-edu] Plugin AMP help

I have found podpress to be far superior to AMP if you want to actually embed videos that you have uploaded (not just links to video on other sites like video quicktags or 2.9 embeds will do).  Podpress gives you an integrated player, customized still image, and (if it's a route you ever decide to use), an iTunes-friendly feed with enclosures.

I'm not sure why Podpress is not more widely used--maybe because of the perception that it's only for podcasting--but I have had very good results with it over a long period of time.

Hi Patrick,

I know that Jim Groom recently found that the Anarchy Media Player was causing him problems (http://twitter.com/jimgroom/statuses/8394198236).  I use Viper's Video Quicktags -- http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/vipers-video-quicktags/changelog/

You might also consider upgrading to WordPress 2.9, which allows video embeds via URL - http://wordpress.org/development/2009/12/wordpress-2-9/

Having some trouble with the Anarchos Media Player (AMP) plugin.  It seems like a pretty straightforward plugin, unzip into my mu-plugins directory and then activate.  Ok, problem there.  I’m looking in my Site Admin, and there’s no reference to anything that looks like AMP.  However, I do get the yellow A button on my editor when I create a new post.  But when I click on the A button, I get nothing.  I ran firebug, and the error that I get is “edInsertVideoSite is not defined”

Anyone heard of this?  I’m not finding much with google and the AMP’s own forums seem to be taken over by pharmaspam.  That’s not very re-assuring.

Or if you use a different but similar plugin from AMP, what is it?
