How to embed Youtube videos

Postby shagzomatic » Fri Aug 20, 2010 7:15 pm

It's not automatic (the phpBB3 mod that did that is currently unavailable for download), but it's simple enough that maybe...JUST MAYBE....ScreaminKaw can figure it out and he'll quit bringing out the waaaaahmbulance about this. :doublebird:

There's a new bbcode tag you can use, called youtube (oddly enough). You just drop the youtube video link inbetween the tags. like so:

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaLCFbsUeEw[/youtube]


There's also a youtube tag button located above the post composition area that you can use to make it a little more point-and-click friendly:

Just paste your youtube URL, highlight it, then click the youtube button to automagically insert the tags for you.




voila.


Alternately, if you're using the youtu.be short URL instead of the youtube.com one, you should use the youtu_be button instead.

Hey, whatever you think'll help the site. :thumbup:

While you're at it, prohibit img coding too. :twofinger:

If you really want to debate that, then speaking from a security and performance perspective, it's never good to embed content from third party sites...in fact, it's actually one of the biggest security holes and performance drains you can put on a site. Especially when you let people do it who have no idea what the implications are. :fact:
