embedding videos

Postby Marnix Hoekstra » Mon Sep 27, 2010 10:00 am

You can embed youtube & google videos in a post by using these BBCodes:

Code: Select all

[youtube](URL of a youtube-video)[/youtube]

Code: Select all

[googlevid](URL of a google-video)[/googlevid]


example:

Code: Select all

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EKwmK0P7yg[/youtube]


result:


An alternative way which works for videos hosted by any site is to post an image which links to the video, like this:

Code: Select all

[url=(video URL)][img](image URL or image attachment)[/img][/url]


example:

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpWkIZMCpo0][img]http://heosemys.org/images/Artis/IMGP5883k.jpg[/img][/url]


You can test this feature in the test topic.
