SimplePie 1.0 has improved support for embedding more media mime types. It also introduces some new methods like
get_handler() which tells you which handler SimplePie would recommend you use when writing your own embed code, and
get_real_type() which tells you what the mime type actually is based on the file extension of the media file and some other variables.
|Odeo||(MP3's from the Odeo service)|
get_real_type() will check the file extension and return one of these listed mime types if its file extension (via
get_extension()) is known to map to it (the right-side of the chart).
get_handler() will return a value corresponding to the recommended handler for this particular mime type (the left side of the chart).
The variable here is whether or not the path to
mediaplayer.swf has been given to the
mediaplayer option in
native_embed(). If so, Flash Media support will be enabled, and MP3's will be handled by the Flash Media handler as well. If not, Flash Media support is disabled, and MP3's will be handled by QuickTime instead.
