Title: Video embedding
Post by: Sean on December 12, 2008, 04:08:43 PM
The Diabolo.ca forum supports automatic video embedding (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=977) for YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/), Vimeo (http://www.vimeo.com/), and Juggling.tv (http://www.juggling.tv).

Disabling embedding
At any time you can disable embedding by wrapping a link in "noembed" BBCode tags. For example:

will result in

YouTube videos will automatically embed in high quality widescreen format (if available) with a link such as:
Code: [Select]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukmulzzbgcoSmile (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukmulzzbgco#)
Clicking on the embedded video once will start it. Clicking again will take the user to the YouTube page with that video. It may take a while (up to 30 minutes) for a high quality version of your video to be converted. Until then, your video will not play embedded. Further, videos with only a low quality version may not appear in wide screen.

Similarly, Vimeo links will automatically embed, however, Vimeo only allows a smaller lower quality video to be embedded. Clicking on one of the links in the embedded video will take you to the Vimeo page with the full quality version.

Code: [Select]

You can embed Juggling.tv videos by just pasting the full URL to the video page.

For example:
Code: [Select]
http://juggling.tv/video/682/diaboloca-collaboration-video-2007Juggling.tv - Diabolo.ca Collaboration Video 2007 (http://juggling.tv/video/682/diaboloca-collaboration-video-2007#id=http://juggling.tv/nuevo/econfig.php?key=cd194a4b1e6992063e94)

More video embedding sites can be supported. If you are interested in embedding a video from a site other than YouTube, Vimeo, or Juggling.tv, contact Sean.
