Youtube Videos

Unread post by Hooli » Sun Jan 24, 2010 5:00 am

I've been fiddling with how Youtube videos are embedded here and simplified it. We now have yt tags to replace the youtube ones Gus setup.
Just copy the URL from your browser over to here, for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6W5Iip6iDLY
Then either highlight it & click the yt button or add the tags manually so you end up with

Code: Select all

[yt]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6W5Iip6iDLY[/yt]

Then when you submit your post the video will appear thus

Hmmmm !
Previously I tried to make it work so that you could use either the url, the embedded tags or the id number - but couldn't seem to make it work with all three, so just picked the easiest two.
I did intend to tweak it so that it would work with ALL video players.
I guess I won't be bothering now.

Your tags still work if you prefer them Gus, I just set this up as the way 99% of forums I use work so I'd expect people to be more familiar with it.

I think whichever way you do it there will always be folk who can't work out how it works !
I tried to make it work all ways - but failed miserably.
And as for trying to include Google Videos, Daily Motion, Godknowswhatelse - I barely got started.

This wouldn't fit in an existing thread, and it wasn't worth starting a new one :

Which goes to prove there is NO reason she should have ever earned a title as 'totty'.
