Embedded Videos (Youtube) in forum
« on: May 05, 2009, 04:28:41 pm »

Hey, is it possible to get a [youtube] tag made to embed youtube videos? That would be alot easier than linking one and having people leave the site to view them.

FUDForum has a code to add it, all your webadmin has to do is insert this code.

Quote:

 Edit post_proc.inc.t to include the following lines:

This goes with the other replacements:
/* Start YouTubeReplace */   while (preg_match('!<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/([^"]+)"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/(.*?)" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent"width="425" height="355"></embed></object>!s', $fudml, $res)) {         $fudml = str_replace($res[0], '[youtube]'.$res[2].'[/youtube]',$fudml);   }/* End YouTubeReplace */


This goes with the other cases

/* Start YouTubeCase*/            case 'youtube':               $url = substr($str, $epos+1, ($cpos-$epos)-1);               $end_tag[$cpos] = '" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>';               $ostr .= '<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/'.$url.'"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/';               break;/*End YouTubeCase */

Interesting idea. We'll look into it!

Cool.
That's one thing I've found lacking on the forum, users not taking full advantage of the tags we have here.
Another thing is the image system in the forum. I find that it looks way better to upload to a free image host (www.imgur.com is a really nice one) and then just paste the [img] tagged link into the post. Then when people view the thread, the image automatically loads, instead of you clicking on the uploaded img link. It also takes the load off psw servers and onto the free image host. It would be hard to tell users to do that, especially the un-websavvy group, but it's just a cool tip.

Cheers

Well, saving bandwidth on the forum is a good thing, considering how much it costs to keep this boat afloat. As for embedding images, you can do that, just upload an image and then click "Insert image into message body" to load the image in your post.

Ahhh, I've seen that look on babies before. They're not flipping you off, they are flicking boogers at you. Or perhaps they are doing both.
