Topic: How to Blog a Synth on Windows Live

I can't seem to find an easy way to blog a Synth I have created onto my Windows Live or Facebook.

For example I have tried to copy the 'embed' link into a Live Writer but the Synth gets removed when it is posted to Windows Live :-(

Would be great to have links to post direct into these sites and also a plugin for Windows Live Writer would help too

Has anyone been able to get it to work on Windows Live?

Both Windows Live and Facebook strip out iFrame tags and their contents from any HTML pasted into their text entry fields under the banner of 'security'.

I've contacted the Windows Live team multiple times about this and gotten the reply back that they have no current plans to allow iFrames (the embed code for Photosynth is an iFrame), putting the ball back in the Photosynth team's court as to how to provide a way to get around this.

As far as Facebook goes, you can read a reply from Darius Monsef (the Photosynth Community Organizer) on progress on Facebook integration here:

If anyone out there has any workarounds I'd love to hear them.
