Searching the forums I noticed that many people ask for a way to embed YouTube videos, Google Maps and so on.

The general suggestion i read is to modify tinymce.template.js and add the html tags to be preserved. In this way, however, when SilverStripe is updated the file is overwritten.

Is there a more elegant way to obtain the same result and/or is there a planned modification to the core to allow this?

Thanks a lot,

There is an I-Frame module which makes it very easy to integrate these things without modifying templates etc.
