Confluence Insert Link dialog extension

We have created an extension of the 'Insert Link' dialog. It shows a list of videos from a video site. When a user select a video and click insert, the video url is inserter onto the editor. Is it possible to change this behaviour so that the inserted link is wrapped with an iframe embedding object? So that the video the url points to gets embedded.

What the 'Insert Link' dialog does is that it creates a anchor node with the given link and insert this node to the linkBrowser.

We wrote the following fragment of code inside the preSubmit handler of our 'Insert Link' extension.

preSubmit: function () {
      	var widgetMacroText = "<p><img class=\"editor-inline-macro\" src=\"/confluence/plugins/servlet/confluence/placeholder/macro?definition=e3dpZGdldDp1cmw9aHR0cHM6Ly9zZW5kdmlldy50by93LzM2MTYwYmZiOH0&locale=en_GB&version=2\" data-macro-name=\"widget\" data-macro-parameters=\"url="+url+"\""+" ></p>";
            	tinymce.confluence.NodeUtils.replaceSelection(widgetMacroText);
            },

The above code made sure that our video url got connected with the Widget Connector extension we created.

The above code was changed to

var node = "<p><img class=\"editor-inline-macro\" src=\"/download/resources/com.dreambroker.confluence.plugins.dreambroker-confluence-plugin:image-resource/macro.png\" data-macro-name=\"widget\" data-macro-parameters=\"url="+url+"\""+" ></p>";
var ed = tinymce.activeEditor;	
var node = AJS.$(newNode).clone(true,false)[0];
ed.execCommand('mceInsertContent', false, node.outerHTML);
