Why is BuddyPress stripping my object or embed tags?

    BuddyPress looks great. Congrats!

    I’m trying to transfer a social networking site built around the lastest WordPress to BuddyPress, but BuddyPress strips all the <object …></object> code from my blog posts.

    I have Blip.tv video in most of my posts. They all disappear when I import them into BuddyPress.

    I managed to get them into BuddyPress by copy/pasting the entire MySQL table, but then when I edit a post, the video disappears again.

    What is going on? Is there an overzealous setting against object tags somewhere that I can turn off?

    Regular WP used to mess with objects, but recent versions leave them alone. With BuddyPress they disappear entirely. What’s different?

    edit:

    It’s the same problem with an embed tag like this:

    <embed src=”http://blip.tv/play/videocode” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”400″ height=”225″ allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true”></embed>

    Thanks r-a-y. I have only been using BuddyPress for a few days and discovered this problem, err–security feature last night,

    The “Allow Embedded Videos: http://wpmudev.org/project/Allow-Embedded-Videos” plugin worked for me.

    Thanks for re-bumping this (even though this is more of a MU issue).

    I actually just encountered Peter’s original problem during an export/import.
