  • Embed Youtube video into a post?

    Hi there,
    apologies if this has been asked before.
    How can I configure my forums to allow embedded Youtube videos? Is this possible?

    You can create a custom BB code like this, but change the application type.

      ive created a tag using this

      Code:
      <object width="550" height="400"> <param name="movie" value="http://someyoutubevideo"> <embed src="http://someyoutubevideo" width="550" height="400" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed> </object>
      And im trying to embed a sample video with this code:

      Code:
      <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/u9T7G74WZAU"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/u9T7G74WZAU" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>
      Its not happening. What should I change in the tag code?

      I have used a random tag (yt) and of course am using that tag when posting the code above....

        You need to use the BB code in posts, not the HTML... if that is what you are doing. For example:

        Code:
        [youtube]http://www.blah.com/movie.ext[/youtube]
        If you continue to have problems, then I need to know all settings for the BB code you created.
