Ok, I'm no computer whizz so here goes.

say if you post a vid off youtube you have to post the link

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAv8hI4QIrc

if you post the embed bit it doesn;t work

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/GAv8hI4QIrc&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/GAv8hI4QIrc&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>


I think it'd be cool to be able to embed vids.

hope I said that right.

That is HTML code, (hyper text markup language), it is used to write websites, you can not use HTML in messages because it is turned off. I don't think it will be turned on, this forum is getting a little offtopic. I know it was partly my fault to, but we should all try to turn the randomness down.

Also, Madonna? gaaaaay

Yeah like Peter says, it's because GW has disallowed HTML in the posts. Mainly because its easier for things to get stupid, but it also brings up more security issues.

Yes, but it can be easily accomplished with vBulletin BBcode.

In ACP, go to BBcode section, and fill in the following details as follows:

Title: YouTube

Tag: youtube

Replacement:

Code:
<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>
Example: [youtube]_Y_kaYr4J04[/youtube]

Description: Embed YouTube Video

Use {option} No

Button Image (Optional) or use attached

And you're done! The youtube tag when used will embed the videos. It will also appear on the editor.

It's a good point although, as Ross said it does have more security implications and opens more holes.

With the site moving over to RM control in the next few weeks, there is a little point in making major changes on the site until they take over. However if the opportunity arises, I will notify them of this section for their thoughts on it.

Yea I've wondered as well, do we lose you and Ninja? That would be a shame.
