BlogEngine.NET YouTube Extension - with Facebook Integration

I've found this great YouTube extension for BlogEngine.NET from Al Bsharah. I've extended it a bit so I could integrate the YouTube Video into Facebook. I've already extended the MediaElementPlayer for Facebook Integration. If you read that article, you almost know everything.


Embed Audio & Video from BlogEngine.NET 2.0 MediaElementPlayer to Facebook

It was a long road to embed audio and video into Facebook. First of all you have to request your site to be whitelisted for Facebook videos. Unless you're whitelisted, you couldn't embed videos. This link gives an overview of the Facebook Share Functionality and which properties are required. There you'll also find this link to request your site to be whitelisted. After you send your request, you'll receive an e-mail from Facebook that they'll review your site. And if you're whitelisted, they will contact you again within one week - if not, they didn't contact you. So you have to hope and wait. I've waited one complete week to get finally whitelisted.

You could change the settings and save and your tag cloud will look as expected. But when you open up the settings again, all initial settings are filled out. I've checked the source and found the problem: the saved settings are read out - but the value is never assigned to the controls. More...

Setting up BlogEngine.NET 1.5 with a few Extensions

I just finished setting up all basic settings for the BlogEngine.NET 1.5. The setup of the engine itself is really easy and there are a lot of tutorials which explains the steps in detail. So I don't want to waste my time to explain something, which was explained that often.

To be more specific: I ran into some issues and had to find out myself how to solve them. I googled around and didn't find any useful solutions or explanation for this issues.

But before I explain this in detail, I will show you a few useful extensions and widgets I've installed for now. More...
