Can we embed videos here?
« on: January 07, 2010, 01:29:30 PM »

If so, how?

If not, why not?

If maybe, have a nice day.

step 1:  click

step 2:  click

step 3:  copy video url from the address bar

step 4:  paste video url between tags

step 5:  edit url.  in this case, the video i used has the following url -   see that "?" in the middle of the url?  delete it and replace it with a "/"  do the same thing with the "=" and replace with a "/"

step 6:  adjust height and width of object (those are the 2 numbers inside of the flash tag)

step 7:  post

Ha! I never had the patience to figure that out. I wonder if we could simplify the process...

i know there's some code that can be added by admins that would basically put a "youtube" embedding icon on top of the reply box with all of the other icons but i'm not exactly sure how to do it. 

i did a youtube search for "embedding video to phpbb" and saw several videos that seemed to the answers.  too bad they were speaking some foreign computer geek language instead of english so i have no clue what the farg they were saying.
