New plan of action:

1) Pull File Entity from Media and store in its own project page.
2) Have Embedded Media Field create a new widget for File Fields, that offers a textfield in addition to the upload button, allowing to paste URL's.
3) The update from d6 to d7 will create a new file field in place of the old, which will store the parsed URI's.

Most of this is already in place, making the process much easier than it would have been earlier.

What do you think? Is this a reasonable course of action? Am I missing something?

I have been looking for helps

I have been looking for helps with media module everywhere. I am trying to embed youtube videos in my Drupal 7 site. I am trying to use media and media_youtube modules but unable to do anything as there are numerous issues. I never seen so many vital issues showing up in Drupal modules before. I hope there are plans for making these modules usable atleast.

Maybe integrate with Filefield Sources? Would make the "file" field the universal and awesome field to rule them all...

FileFieldSources is a good idea!

I like the idea of merging with FileField Sources; it'd be great if that module could take 3rd party URL's and process them in a custom way.

I mean thats basically what it does already but in a "hardcoded" way; all external URL's are downloaded.

The Society for Venturism has chosen me as the recipient of its charity for this year, to hopefully offer me cryonic preservation when the time comes. And this month, Longecity, an excellent forum for the discussion of issues related to extending the lifespan of humans, has offered up a matching grant of up to a thousand dollars to help out! So help out! Please.
