    I was curious if it was possible to embed flash video like that from youtube into forum posts. It is possible on other forums by using the code
    Code:
     [youtube]http://youtube.com/watch?v=UY0xwRIGOdc[/youtube]
    There is a mod for this at http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=375183

    Any possible chance of this getting added to videohelps forums? I have a video software tutorial I would like to embed into a post.

    Thanks for considering Baldrick.

    We may end up with Vbulletin instead of phpBB.

    Well that's even better. If Baldrick feels like going to the trouble to do so it would be great. Would be a neat feature to have.

    I'm just going to post a link to download that software flash tutorial that I created. After uploading it to youtube You can hardly read the onscreen instructions that I created using camstudio.

    Having the capability to embed youtube into posts could be useful though...

    Anyways... it was just a thought/request....

    Here is a custom bbcode for phpbb3 that works great for youtube.


    BBCode usage
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v={SIMPLETEXT}[/youtube]

    HTML replacement
    <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{SIMPLETEXT}"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{SIMPLETEXT}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

    Help line
    [youtube]url[/youtube]


    Works a beauty on a 'very small' forum I run.

    You shouldn't use {TEXT} as a token within HTML code when creating a custom bbcode as that is vulnerable to attack hence the reason it says next to the token:

    You should not use this token in HTML tags. Instead try to use IDENTIFIER or SIMPLETEXT.
    {SIMPLETEXT} or {IDENTIFIER} which will limit the allowable characters.

    See here why: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-site_scripting

    You know, we could use this new feature for another video contest. Call the advertisers!

    stiltman: All imdb videos seems to be limited to US only. "This video is not available in your country". So I don't think I will add it.

    Hmm, I didn't know that.
    We can always find the video some place else (aka youtube) and I do like this new feature!

    Thanks again Baldrick
