Automatically Embedded Video Clips - New Feature
« on: May 09, 2008, 01:48:13 PM »
I've upgraded our ability to embed video clips into posts.  The old method of using a BBC code to bracket a link has been removed.  The new method will read a standard link and then automatically embed the video.  All current videos have been converted to the new method (or at least I hope they have, looks good so far).  here is some more on the feature from the author's PR piece:

Automatically embeds video clips for 70+ sites including YouTube/DailyMotion/MetaCafe/GoogleVideo/BBC Iplayer (uk only) from urls.

Yes, no need for bbcode or html to embed the videos. Thats sooooo 2005.
Just copy the url from your address bar into a post (like
Code: [Select] )and let the mod will do the rest.
Its the 2008 ultimate user friendly way of posting clips and safe from a security standpoint.

o Supports 70+ Video clip sites (New in v2.2 shown in bold)
YouTube (including Playlists), Google Video, Dailymotion, BBC Iplayer (UK Only), Megavideo, MetaCafe,, Aniboom, AOL Uncut, AtomFilms, AtomFilms Uploads, Biku,, BrightCove, CellFish,, ClipMoon,, CollegeHumor,, dv.ouou, ESPN, FunnyOrDie, Gametrailers, Gametrailers User Movies,, GameVideos, Glumbert, Godtube, Gofish Videos, Gofish Channels, Guba, IFilm,, IndyaRocks,,, Koreus,, LiveLeak, LiveVideo, MotionBox, MSN Live/Soapbox Video, Mofile, M Thai, Mtvu, MySpaceTv, MyVideo, OnSmash, Photobucket,, Revver, Sevenload, Snotr,,,, Tudou, UUME, Veoh,, Vidiac, VidMax, Vimeo, VSocial, WeGame, Yahoo (Except HK), Yahoo HK Only, Youku,,

Note: Some users have reported that the players won't go fullscreen. This maybe caused by bugs in some versions of Adobe Flash Player when wmode="transparent" is in use. Check to see whether you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

Note: Are some YouTube clips not working? YouTube has recently started allowing clip authors to prevent users external embedding their clips.  So if a YouTube clip doesn't work, check at youtube for the embed code. Where it says "Embedding disabled by request", those clips will only work when viewed at YouTube.
