Right now we are recommending users against it, and pushing for straight
embeds in HTML view. we then are going to go through the database and
rewite all the AMP code for YouTUbe videos (99% of the usage) to a straight
embed code which should solve the problem with bad code and lost videos. As
of Fall 2010, Anarchy will no longer be available, and we'll check out what
the best options for audio uploads are. We've stayed away from PodPress
because it too is a resource hound, and adds an unimaginable amount of
tables to each blog database. More than that, no one uploads their own
videos onto UMW Blogs.
Viper's plugin integrated into 2.9.1 is promising, but I haven;t tested that
with audio yet. Anarchy worked brilliantly with audio, but turns out most
folks used it for YouTube, nonetheless, it was a beautiful thing for audio
when it was still supported. I'll miss you anarchy.
