Wikispaces supports adding embedded pictures, video, applications and other media through the use of the [[media]] tag. Using this tool, you can embed video clips, sounds and music, chat clients, and any other content designed to be shared from HTML pages. The easiest way to use this is to use the "Embed Media" tool from the visual editor (external image embed.gif) or the text editor. In the popup window that appears, paste the HTML code given to you by the content provider.

All valid HTML can be included on a page. Popular embedded content will be detected and converted to the appropriate tag. Other content will be given a custom tag.

For media types that are recognized by Wikispaces, you do not need to use the popup tool, though it is more convenient. These types can be added without the use of the "Embed Media" popup in both the visual and text editor, and can be changed directly in the editor. The media tag that is added to your page for a YouTube video, for example, has the following format:

[[media type="youtube" key="guDxHFA1OzE" height="100" width="200"]]

The required parameters are type and key (and sometimes arg0), and the rest are optional.
type
The type of the media to display. See the table of supported types below.
key
The unique Key or ID of the content, from the provider of that content. See the table of supported types below, to see what the key means for each type.
height
The height of the content to be displayed, in pixels. Defaults to a value provided by the content provider.
width
The width of the content to be displayed, in pixels. Defaults to a value provided by the content provider.
arg0
Additional settings sometimes required. See the table of supported types below.
