Pidgin Embedded Video is a GTK plugin for the popular instant messaging client Pidgin. The purpose of this plugin is to provide a faster way to watch videos while chatting with your friends. No more additional browser windows! It transforms a simple conversation into a much more attractive and interesting experience. Sharing links to videos and watching them was never such a pleasant activity in Pidgin.

* The plugin automatically inserts the video pointed to into the conversation when an appropriate link is sent or received.
* Every video has a toggle button which allows you to show or hide the video.
* The default behaviour for a new video link is customizable from the "Configure Plugin" menu. You can choose whether to show the video instantly or to hide it by default.
* Supported video sites are CollegeHumor, Dailymotion, Google Video, Metacafe, MySpace Video, Trilulilu (all the stuff: audio, images and video), Vimeo, Yahoo! Video and Youtube.
* It works with the Ubuntu version of Pidgin. It should work on every Linux distribution as far as the requirements are met.
