  • How to post videos (Hulu, YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Metacafe, Google, Facebook)

    Hey Guys,

    Thought I'd make a quick write up since you may have seen video links posted on the forum. Instead of just linking the URL (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFPYECoVmnM) for example, you can actually make it a clickable window so it loads in-line with the thread.

    To do so, standard BBCode works, you just grab your video link and put [video] and [/ VIDEO] (without the space) on the outside of it.

    So my URL of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFPYECoVmnM would be:

    Code:
    [VIDEO=youtube;aFPYECoVmnM]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFPYECoVmnM[/ VIDEO] <-- remove the space inside the close tag
    Once you remove the space you get this nice thumbnail and embedded video:



    Alternatively, you can click the "A" icon on the top right of any reply window, and then the "filmstrip/video" icon and paste your video URL in there to generate the [VIDEO] wrapper.

    If anyone has any questions, please feel free to comment below!
