View Ray J's plugins
This plugin is a extension of Cash´s Video Embed plugin. It allows video embedding in ELGG content. Just put the URL in blog posts, comments, messages, pages and the wire and video is displayed.
The plugin doesn't make changes in views and doesn't store or modify entities. It just parses the content, through views extending, and shows the video. If you disable the plugin, the video URL is displayed again.
The initial version supports Youtube, Vimeo and Metacafe. Others formats is on the way.
If Cash's Embed Video Plugin is enabled, Embed Extender will use the latest version of the Cash's library. Otherwise, the plugin will use a own copy of Cash's library. The latest version of Cash's plugin can be found here: http://community.elgg.org/pg/plugins/project/384562/developer/costelloc/embed-video
The plugin needs Cash´s Eager Widgets to work perfectly in profile pages. The latest version can be found here: http://community.elgg.org/pg/plugins/project/535997/developer/costelloc/eager-widgets
The plugin doesn't show embebed videos in Riverdashboard, because the River shows only the first 200 characters of the message.
Notes for 1.8:
This plugin uses a 1.8 beta version of Cash´s Embed library. An update will be released with Cash´s official 1.8 library. (Don´t worry. The actual version works fine)
How to install:
A great "Thank You" to DhrupDeScoop for supporting my limited PHP skills and to Gillie for the help in The Wire widget issue.

First test and impression, great!
On my localhost I have found no problems. Tested again on 1.7.11 with embedvideo enabled and no problems. Added video to pages and blogs :-)
You guys have even added pages already, just perfect thanks.
I'll test on my online site later today.
A quick test shows that the plugin also works online :-) A minor bug is the wire widget on profile page. It uses the "video width" and not the "video width for widgets".
To the wishlist: How about a setting in the admin panel to allow wire video or not.
