Can you add BBcode for Youtube?

Postby Individual » Thu Jun 25, 2009 12:25 am

So that people can embed Youtube videos in forum posts. It's much easier to view... You don't have to open a new window.

I've never done it, but I've seen it work on other forums. Here's a description of how to do it:

I don't know if that will work or not...

Greetings Individual,

Have you seen it work, or heard of it done on a phpBB3 board?

Metta,
Retro. :)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...

It works on a phpBB board elsewhere, but not this same version... They use an older version of your software, so it will probably work on yours as well.

I did a search on their website and they have this code for a great variety of different video sites:

Greetings Individual,

I've had a look and it involves the installation of a MOD and TheDhamma is the only person who can do that, so I'll have a chat to him and we'll see whether it's viable.

phpBB [video]


We added video functionality. To add a video like the one you see above, start with writing a new post. Click the "video" button on the far right hand side of the buttons (right of "Font colour"). Between the [video][/video] tags you can put the URL of the video. E.g.:

Code: Select all

[video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17_TtOysQOA[/video]


This feature will allow you to add videos from the following websites:

Youtube, googlevideo, dailymotion, metacafe. myspace, starsclips, yahoo, photobucket, filefront, veoh, vidilife, gametrailers, vidiac, gamespot, megavideo, vimeo, gamevideos, tu.tv, godtube. myvideo, collegehumor, comedycentral, slideshare, revver, sevenload, clipfish
