Thanks for the nice plugin. Before I buy this plugin, I tell you about my needs. I hope you can answer these questions:

1) I have a wordpress website. On a gallery, when a user clicks on a video link I want to open a new wordpress page for every video and want to have comments section so that users can add comments to a particular video. This is not implemented within the current version. How to get around this problem? Perhaps it would be nice to extract youtube comments to wordpress page or have a social comments box. Please suggest something.

2) I share a video's page on my facebook. How do i share it properly? I mean the current URL of a video does not generate a proper thumbnail on facebook.

Thanks and Regards

I second the need for each video to have it\'s own \"deep link\" URL, which would allow each video to be directly shared onto Facebook walls and have it\'s own comments using Facebook Connect/Comments Box. One of my WordPress websites, http://www.docstream.com/docstream, loads a unique URL for each video selected, thus allowing the \"share\" box to share videos which play directly on walls and link back to that specific video. My problem is that my system is far to expensive and TubePress seems like a suitable alternative for our multi-user site in many ways. But without the ability to integrate comments or deep sharing links directly back to a specific video I am unable to utilize this otherwise impressive plug-in.

If anyone has a workaround for allowing TubePress Vimeo videos to have integrated comments and Facebook wall sharing, please let me know: blockjocks@gmail.com
