There are many external site, which helps for the users to upload they content, and make readable it on the Internet. The best example is slideshare.net, which helps to upload slides to the internet. You can link these contents to the LeMill, but this "please click on the link" mechanism is not confortable. It would be good, if users could embedd this uploaded contents to LeMill as a simple media element. It is easy, because every content uploader site (slideshare, youtube, etc.) gives an "Embed into your blog" link. We should make possible for users to use this direct links. My idea is to create to kind of links, the firs is simple link (wich is exists in lemill), and the second is embedded content. When a user want to add embedded content, they can copy the link from the content share site (slideshare, youtube, etc.) and paste it to LeMill (we can write a little help for beginners: copy the ... link and paste it to LeMill bla bla bla ...). After this, the user choose the kind of link from a list. It is important as, because we can validate the link if we know the type of it (youtube link, slidshare link, etc.). If everything is ok, the user has a new beautiful material.

I think it could be a very usable thing, because we can add many new feature (upload videos easily, upload slides [with slideshare]) with a little work.
