The Media URL Scanner provides a Core Text Formatter that "scans" user text and replaces URLs to supported media sites with an inline, embedded player - this makes it super easy for users to share uploaded videos, images and audio with their followers in their timeline, or get their friends to decide what the best YouTube video is by using the new User Polls module.

The Media URL Scanner is super easy to use - just turn it on and URLs are converted to embedded media players automatically (the player starts out hidden, and when the user clicks on the media title the player "slides down" for viewing).

Is there a demo site where we can see this in action? Thanks!

I have it running on one of my sites here -
Click on the youtube links in the first activity post.
Basically, any Youtube, vimeo, soundcloud, flicks or local media URL included in the text is converted to its 'title' and a div included for an embedded player. Note that the relevant media modules need to be installed and active for this to work.

That means we don't use the soundcloud module here on Actually surprised we have the Vimeo module installed here.

I like how there is an option to show the content or hide it with a link/title in the Admin. JR is one of the first sites I've seen do that - normally other sites just show the video, etc.
