Suggestion : embedded YouTube...
« on: May 24, 2007, 08:32:21 PM »
Hello, I have to do a suggestion which I think would be interesting, specially for the Votw or for the video Section.

I have no idea if it is easy and possible with this kind of forum, but I know it works on  forum.kubuntu-fr.org, for example.

There is a button "Youtube", when you click on it you obtain

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

and you just have to put the link of the video.

Then it appears in the message, and you don't have to open a new window or tab for the video. (and there is only the video you want, not taking a lot of space in your screen...)

Alex!

Yeah you can do that if you use the embedding code next to your video on youtube. The only problem is that you would have to wait on that post until the video loaded instead of being able to read through the rest of the posts while waiting for the video.

but Alex, isn't it waiting to load until you press the play button?

surely immense work to edit all the threads, but could be nice to have one topic with all votws(of a year) embedded in the first post, of course the titel and the link to the topic of every votw must be alltogether with the embedded vids.  not replacing anything, just additional...
i would do the work for one year if its technically possible and im not the only one who likes the idea :D

dont know,...

Alex are you saying this is possible right now ? So what is this embedding code ? (I'm not very good with all this stuff...)

On the forum i just talked above, there is no waiting time, you have just to click the play button to begin the streaming.

Anyway, olobaid, my question was not to edit all the threads, but just to add a button for when we are posting, to simplify the task for the future. And to post the new votw with an embedded viewer.

Amic, ahh ok, i see no reason why not,...

this site has many votws embedded just like i thought about it and funny is, my "sunblocker" is on top ;P

i've not been asked though, but hey, the site is nice!

i just tried to embed a video in here but it did not work, so maybe this question is answered -maybe i did something wrong though.... i guess the code has to be enabled first..

<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/5PMZP70vvIU"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/5PMZP70vvIU" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

Yeah, it's got something to do with SMF, perhaps there's a plugin for embedding YT videos... I think Sean can tell you some more info.

Embeding an object in a forum doesn't work by default on all of the software I have used. It usually requires some code/mod to allow videos to be embedded -and even then it doesn't usually use the HTML youtube supply you with, just the video ID.

I will see about doing this.

FYI: All mods available for SMF are here: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/

The YouTube embed mod is here: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=595

Only mods compatible with the lastest version (right now 1.1.2) can be used. This mod is one of those.

wouldn't it be easier if you could just insert the HTML code into the reply, so it would be possible to put videos from other sites like stage 6 and google video on to the forum.

Yeah I think HTML would be the go. Much simpler?

Yeah as silly as it sounds there are people out there who would like to make a nightmare for the admins. I'd think that the embed code mods will be suffice though.

Done.

Quote
This mod allows a poster the option to embed a YouTube video in a post through the use of the [youtube=425,350] BBC (bulletin board code) tags.  What makes this variation different from other YouTube BBC mods is that the code it uses is XHTML compliant, thus keeping with the forum's XHTML validity.

Its use is easy: simply plug the video ID (random jumble of letters and numbers) between the http://youtube.com/watch?v=http://youtube.com/watch?v= tags.

So, for example: [youtube=425,350]l6SOmcSeU1k[/youtube ]

The button can be found at the top left of the BBC tags.

Nice mod

I think it would be a nice idea if people with videos 'Modify' it into the original post in there video threads rather than bumping up old stuff that will get the board in a mess. I'm sure the mods will help if needed.
