My users didn't like much to type the video tag ([video:url]), even some of them messes it up :P
So I came up with solution, to put an input box and a button above the text areas, where the user inserts the video link, and pressed the button, the video will be inserted into the text box at the correct place.
I've patched the 6.x-2.7 version of the module. Most of the code is base on the Smileys module!

I've attached a screenshot, the patch and the patched version of the module.
Please try it out, and see if it is necessary or valueable for this module. I think yes.

Title:Propsed Video Filter input boxProposed Video Filter input box

It also has some settings up the filter settings to decide where to display the input box.
Currenty it is absolutely not compatible with any WYSIWYG editor!

Version:6.x-2.7» 6.x-3.x-dev
Status:Needs review» Postponed (maintainer needs more info)

I can see the benefit of this, and it looks like a great solution. I think it belongs in it's own module though, but I could be interested in adding it as a sub module in the package. You care to create it as a separate module?

I think it's better to add this as a submodule. What you think?

Bit late, but i've transformed it into a module:
