Google KPluginLoader, and mention what parts of that you'd use (if any).

Try and expand on the video plugin, as that's a complex one.

If I message you with:
"hey check out this awesome video"

That video is all but awesome! Kinda catchy though..

How would you turn that into the relevant HTML with the video tags?
What would be all the steps, what would the output HTML be, how would
you turn my link into the URL of the source?

Also, if you're about to turn in into embedded flash thing, what if I don't have flash? And with my experience using flash in webkit stuff (not like Chrome etc), it crashes a lot. So if flash would crash, would it crash text-ui as well? Watch out for that.

As for the rest - it's ok, maybe you might want to focus more on particular implementation in text-ui when talking about "how to do a plugin system".
