HOW TO: Youtube Embedding
« on: December 30, 2008, 06:17:34 PM »
Hi All,

WARNING! Before you post ANYTHING that is embedded I will expect you to have vetted it yourself for inappropriate content.

The observant will have noticed a new button above the box when typing a message:

You can use this to post youtube videos and have them embedded into the post.

Click the button and you will see youtube tags appear in the box, simply paste the youtube URL (not the embedding code) between the youtube tags, here is an example:

Code: [Select]
[youtube]http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=rxaG1nVviL0[/youtube]

Which gives something like this:
[youtube]http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=rxaG1nVviL0[/youtube]

If this gets abused or not used with the appropriate level of care, I will take the functionality off the board, but I'm sure you'll all play nice :D

Any questions, ask in here!
Zee goggles, zhey do nothing!

This mod looks like it will do it: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=977

Not doing it now, had too much beer and it's too late to be trying to fix broken stuff if it goes wrong :)
