Media Embed is a PHP class that can embed video and images from remote sites. It takes the URL of a page in a remote site that may have images or video and sends HTTP requests to that site to retrieve details about that media like the title, description, size, and thumbnail images. The class can also generate HTML to embed the given remote site images or videos in the current site page. Currently, the class supports retrieving information and embedding media from sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, DailyMotion, MySpace, MetaCafe, Revver, FiveMin, Clickthrough, DotSub, Revision 3, VideoJug, Blip, Viddler, Screener, SlideShare, Qik, Flickr, FunnyOrDie, TwitPic, and YFrog.
XML-Grammar-Fiction is a Perl package that provides processors for lightweight markup languages and corresponding XML grammars for writing prose (e.g. stories, novels, and novellas) as well as screenplays. The XML grammars can in turn be translated to XHTML and DocBook/XML. XML-Grammar-Fiction currently offers only very basic functionality, but has good support for UTF-8 and allows one to write bidirectional texts conveniently. It is still under development and may exhibit some quirks.
