Flickr Slideshow Support in Drupal Content Fields

File under

Just released a patch to the Video Filter module that adds support for embedding Flickr slideshows in content fields. It’s pretty flexible. Just browse to a set or its slieshow, copy the URL, and add it as you would any other media type in Video Filter:

So far it’s just for the 5.x branch, but if the patch is accepted and there’s interest, I’ll gladly port it to 6.x.

Now, just because I released this patch doesn’t necessarily mean that I condone embedding things like Flickr slideshows in, say, body text. But if your clients demand it, or if your hands are otherwise tied, Video Filter is a handy module.
