Link

[url]

Allows you to embed a link into the page that automatically decides which format to put it in, and if it doesn't match our automator then it simply creates a link to it.
This can be used to make any video link (youtube, google, facebook, vimeo, flv) into a video embedded in the page.
You can embed audio and flv clips which use a native player, or create thumbnails by linking to images on sites. If you find a thumbnail can't be created and you know it should then use this format: [url=img]http://example.com/linktoimage[/url] or if an flv or mp3 can't be embedded use [url=flv]http://example.com/linktoflv[/url] or [url=mp3]http://example.com/linktomp3[/url].
Flash files can be embedded also - if you find you can't embed them and it just makes a link then use the format: [url=flash]http://example.com/linktoflash[/url] - this technique works nicely with some obscure video sites too.
