Embedded Videos

I just installed a mod that allows members to embed videos directly in their posts. It's very simple to use. You can either post the video url directly or wrap the url around another word as if it were just another link. The video is parsed and embedded automatically.

As of now, the only sites supported are:
Youtube
Google Video
Yahoo
Photobucket

It's possible to add other sources, so if anyone wants to post from a site not listed above, just let me know.

Please be sure that if you post video in any forum other than the "General" forum it is a relevant video to that respective forum or thread topic. Random idiocy will be deleted.

If anyone has any problems, let me know.

Example: Google Video
"Robert Campbell conversation with I.M. Pei."


Feel free to use this thread to test it out.

Tom Cruise is a psycho, I have absolutely no respect for him anymore. Scientology is f#@$ing WEIRD! Did anyone go to the anonymous protest outside the church of scientoloy in Boston on Sunday?

Re: Embedded Videos

Ron, Ive tried to post the link in different ways but it keeps getting recognized as a youtube video. Let me look into it and I'll get back to you soon.

Re: Embedded Videos

Is it possible to hook up Vimeo as a source?

Re: Embedded Videos

Is there a "trick" to making this feature work? I made three posts including videos in the Filene's redevelopment thread. In one post they were magically embedded, in two they were not.

I believe you used the youtu.be link instead of the youtube.com link in the most recent one. Video embedding only works with the original youtube.com/watch link.

Edit: Yes, you did.

Re: Embedded Videos

I see. The magic doesn't seem to happen during preview.

Thanks.
