YouTube/Google Videos now embedded - updated

Post by fecc-mechanic »

Hi Folks!

Just working under the hood... Just wanted to let you know that whenever you post links to youtube.com videos - the video will now appear "Embedded" on the forum page, so you do not have to click a link and be taken away from the FECC pages.

Edit -:
For this to work, simply input the youtube address between the "youtube" tags ... For example:
.www.myyoutubevideo.com.

Working on a way to have this work with Google videos as well.

Enjoy!
All the best from Memphis,
Jordan

Hi matt,
Also responded to your PM. But I think it's a good question, so I will answer here to.
For the embedded video to work, you need to keep the "www." portion in the video's url you embed.
Also, make sure you don't have the "Disable BBCode" box checked in your posting options.
All the best from Memphis,
Jordan

Thanks to @TCB-FAN for pointing out the following error:
When embedding youtube videos beginning with https:// the forum youtube BBCode would not work.
This has now been corrected.
The youtube embed code can now be used with the following video sites, along with YouTube:

Code: Select all

youtube.com (and youtu.be) - playlists are also supported
    vimeo.com
    facebook.com
    dailymotion.com
    ustream.tv — streams and recorded videos
    ted.com
    vine.co
    metacafe.com
    video.yandex.ru — the URL from the embed code is required
    myvideo.de
Among others...
All the best from Memphis,
Jordan
