A simple yet versatile way to embed the Unity Webplayer!

Hello everyone! Yesterday I decided to create a simple and elegant way to embed Unity webplayer content onto a page without lag. It gives you a lot of options on how you want the final result to look, and is very easy to set up (I included a coding wizard to get you started).
 
Without further ado, here are some examples for you to try out :)
 
Example #1
A multi-threaded text compressor using a custom string combining algorithm I designed. [Compressor v1.0,760*500,black,http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4704910/Compressor/Compressor.html]

Example #2
An old jetboat vehicle demo I created for Flyman (the model used is Flyman's Sketchup creation). Contains many cool features such as fake water reflection, water physics, and procedural bouy generation.[JetBoat Vehicle Demo,600*450,blue,http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4704910/JetBoat/JetBoat.unity3d]

Example #3
The off-road buggy demo (the same one from the other post but embedded using UniEmbed). [Off-road Buggy Demo,760*500,#CCCCCC,http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4704910/OffRoadBuggy/OffRoadBuggy.unity3d]


How to Use UniEmbed on the Forum
First, generate your UniEmbed code using the code wizard and copy it to your clipboard. If you know what the options are [linktitle,size,color,url] you can also do it manually (it's a lot easier to use the code wizard).
 
Next, start a new thread or post a comment and click the HTML insertion button (see image below for help) and a window will pop up.
 
Paste the UniEmbed code from your clipboard into the HTML window and click "Update". You may have to refresh the page once after posting the comment/thread for UniEmbed to take effect.

Cool, but i still prefer opening it in a new window, but i guess it doesn't matter because my unity web player is broken.  Does anyone know how to fix it?  It keeps saying that I need to update my web player, that the auto update failed, and when I try to follow their instructions to update manually, the same result happens after an apparently succesful update.

What browser are you using? Did you try uninstalling the webplayer and re-installing it?

Back to the subject. Is this how you post links in the forum? So, if you type a URL into the page, you use this to make it a link?

No, UniEmbed embeds Unity3d webplayer content onto a page. To post URLs on the forum youc can just click the link icon (3rd button from the left that looks like a chain) in the toolbar.

Okay, I take back my comment on the uselessness of the text compressor.

We did already have one, but this is nice because you can have multiple embeds on each page.

I actually created it as an alternative to FC's "SmartEmbed". I wasn't happy with the total lack of control over things such as the background color and wanted a more elegant way of showing/hiding the Unity webplayer content. UniEmbed code also only takes up 1 line of space and is ultra easy to insert onto any page :)

Update!
UniEmbed no longer relies on the window.onload event so it won't cause issues with other scripts. Enjoy!

That would be the Unity Plugin not being the most stable piece of software ;)
