It would be nice to put our Photosynth in our websites without having to put a link, just as embed in browser just like a video.

LuckyMax, if you look underneath any synth or pano, you'll see an 'Embed' option that is exactly what you want and the HTML code that it gives you is used just as embed code for a video would be.

Yes, I saw it, and tried it but it doesn't work on my Wordpress blog.
Maybe Photosynth could do a partnership with Wordpress.
Just a suggestion anyway.

Yes, would be ideal if you could make the embed code the "old" embed code style that would work with Wordpress or through Vodpod.com.  That way the panoramas could be embedded into Wordpress pages (the most popular platform for most everyone's blogs across the web)

That's actually WordPress.com's fault for deleting iframe elements. 

If you run your own WordPress installation on your own server (from WordPress.org) you can embed whatever HTML you like, including photosynths and panoramas from Photosynth.net.

You'll find that if you paste the embed code into Blogger or a Tumblr video blog post that the Photosynth.net embed code works just fine. 

The same can be said for writing your own HTML pages and uploading them to something like DropBox.

I don't mean to say that WordPress.com is unimportant or that the Photosynth team shouldn't reach out to them (and Facebook), but it's really WordPress.com's problem for not implementing something like WebSandbox or Google Caja or the like which would safeguard their website and users from unpredictable content being embedded in iframes while while allowing us the freedom of posting whatever we want.
