Support for embeddable Cellblock player

Support for embeddable Cellblock player

Short, concise description of the idea
Add Cellblock domain to list of supported embeddable player sites (a la: Blufr, Google, Ifilm, Youtube, etc ...)

Full description of the idea
Cellblock is an embeddable widget for instant, collaborative mobile photo and video blogging. When content is sent in to a cellblock (via the cellblocks email address), it shows up instantly, with no refresh. They can be kept private (the email address isn't published), or they can be collaborative (the address is published).

Cellblock is a free web service and doesn't require any special software. All you need is a cell phone with photo / video capabilities, and the ability to send text messages.


An ordered list of benefits
  • Allows users to have a instantly updatable photo / video blogging widget embedded in their journal entries or in their profile.
  • Allows LJ communities (photo / video / art related or otherwise) to use the Cellblock webservice in collaborative ways - whereby anyone can send in multimedia content and it will show up in the player instantly, with no refresh.
  • One example: You create a cellblock for your upcoming vacation and post it in a journal entry. Then, your friends can watch in REAL-TIME as you send in photos and videos from the trip ...

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Asumming that there is some whitelist for these supported domains, simply add cellblock.com so that when a cellblock player is embedded it doesn't strip out the embed code and display "Invalid Video URL".
