This is embeded html from vimeo. I am sure avarage end user will be 
scarred having to find a link he has to cut and paste into new media 
content element.

<object width="400" height="225"><param name="allowfullscreen" 
value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param 
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" 
allowscriptaccess="always" width="400" 
href="http://vimeo.com/4167288">SprintCam v3 NAB 2009 showreel</a> from 
<a href="http://vimeo.com/coiffier">David Coiffier</a> on <a 

Have not you thought about making some kind of translators from the easy 
web browsers address bar urls to those embeded one?
