This plugin allows you to embed online movies from YouTube, GoogleVideo and MetaCafe, and local movies via FlowPlayer. If you want support for other online sites, just create a ticket.

Adds support for preview rendering of movies in the browser and on attachment pages. For preview rendering to be available for all attachments, set the max_preview_size in the [mimeviewer] section of trac.ini to be greater than or equal to max_size in the [attachment] section.
