New Vimeo & Youtube Video Embed Option in Postings

Postby Tawmass » Wed Jan 11, 2012 9:53 am

Thanks to Brad and Joe for prodding me - I just added a new option to embed Youtube videos within your posts. Here are the instructions:

To use the new [youtube][/youtube] BB code tags, you just need to insert the YouTube Video ID of the YouTube video you want to add in between the tags.

The Video ID is the #’s and letters after the =

For Example: The Video ID in the YouTube Video link below is: YEktpXJSWEA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEktpXJSWEA

To post the video you would then put the Video ID in between the tags like this:

Code: Select all

[youtube]YEktpXJSWEA[/youtube]


You will now be able to embed YouTube videos on your forum posts, which will look like this:



Enjoy,
-Tom

Sweet action!!! That makes viewing YouTube videos way easier for me since I use my phone for Internet and this new way of posting is a lot faster(doesn't have to open up extra windows and when the video is done it takes me right back to the page I was on) thanks Tom!

We now also have the same feature for Vimeo using the same method of posting. Merely click the "vimeo" button when posting and you will see the following:

Code: Select all

[vimeo][/vimeo]


Then simply insert the Vimeo video code. For example, if I wanted to post the following Vimeo video:

Code: Select all

http://vimeo.com/34660185


I would merely insert the Vimeo number between the Vimeo text, so it would now look like this:

Code: Select all

[vimeo]34660185[/vimeo]


...which would make the video look like below after you post.
Enjoy!
