fora.tv shortcode added in https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/1d7e73d13a0f181a9dc5be27253c939d1c50a366
When writing a blog post or page, you can embed a fora.tv video by using the following syntax:
When you publish or preview the post/page, this will turn into an embedded iframe.
You can get the fora.tv id of a video by looking at the embed code provided on the fora.tv website. For instance, see http://fora.tv/2008/10/20/Naomi_Klein_and_Joseph_Stiglitz_on_Economic_Power. When the video begins playing, click the Share link, and then look in the EMBED field. The embed src URL will be something like http://fora.tv/embed?id=7950&type=c. The id in this case is 7950.
Not the most elegant interface, but it should work for any fora.tv video.
