Archive.org offers free streaming of thousands of moving image selections and even
more audio materials. The archive-org plugin offers a simple shortcode syntax for
embedded video, audio, and playlists into WordPress post/pages.
Place the shortcode [archive-org embed=embedID] into any post or page. embedID can be found on the Archive.org website at the tail end of the URL for a video or audio item or playlist. The plugin automatically recognizes playlists.
width = width in pixels of the embedded player height = height in pixels of the embedded player playlist = true/false - determines whether a dropdown list of all the files is displayed
An example using all the options might look like:
[archive-org embed=VariousBannedAndCensoredCartoons width=640 height=480 playlist=true]
Audio playlists include the dropdown list within the vertical dimension you’ve specified. If you don’t want a dropdown, set the height=30. However, if you desire the dropdown playlist, you should probably set height to at least 380 pixels, as Archive.org has a bug in audio playlists which make the scrollbar troublesome at smaller heights.
If you set playlist=false, or omit the playlist parameter, you won’t get the dropdown. However you can move to different playlist selections by using the track forward/backward buttons in the player. With playlist=false on audio files/playlists, it’s best to set height=30.
