New Vimeo & Youtube Video Embed Option in Postings

Postby Tawmass » Sun Jan 15, 2012 8:07 am

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,

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!
