Embedding youtube videos
« on: November 22, 2013, 08:50:24 PM »
Here's a quick guide to do it, waiting for a better solution.

You need to take the video url, and replace watch?v= by "/v/"

So you start with :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMIYH3x8AhM

and then : http://www.youtube.com/v/HMIYH3x8AhM

Then you need to put the
Code: [Select]

Example :

Code: [Select]
[flash=640,480]http://www.youtube.com/v/HMIYH3x8AhM[/flash]
I know it's a bit painful, but be sure I'm working on it  :P

@Admins,
about a solution for embeding videos. In the moment embeded YT videos looking distorted. In Simplemachines forum software there are two mods, that may be optionally installed:

SAVE = Simple Audio Video Embedder
AEVA = another mod to do the same thing

One member describes it that way: "JUST PUT THE URL IN. No embed tag, nothing." Ok, I know, website administration isn't that easy, maybe in a future version of Simplemachines it's easier to embed YT videos. The content and activities of your forum members are much more important than that small problem, thx ;-)!
