The media tag doesn't do it:

Manuel advised me in June:

You copy & paste the embed code and select "HTML On - Auto Linebreak Mode" from the "Post Options" Combobox

But I can't find that combobox anymore.

Any help?

EDIT: And I know Manuel's doing it somehow, he embedded a video on Sunday:

Looks like Gametrailers has changed the URL format for newer videos such as the one you posted. I had to update the [Media] tag to recognize the new format. It should work now.

Only admins and moderators can post raw HTML code, so you won't see the "HTML On - Auto Linebreak Mode" option he described.

Can you add support for video from kotaku.com?

Example:

http://kotaku.com/53...indiana-jones-2

EDIT:

http://kotaku.com/53...indiana-jones-2

And how about shackvideo? Let's see if that works:

EDIT II: Apparently not. Can you make those work also?

Also can't embed IGN video...grrr.

Is there a list somewhere of which sites you can embed video from?
