    BBcode is just a fancy name for the tags on the forum that let you do stuff like bold text, add images, links, etc.
    HTML:
    Examples: this makes stuff bold and this makes stuff italic
    STR now has the ability to embed youTube videos within posts using BBcode.

    Here's how:

    Youtube URLs always have v=xxxxx at the end. That stuff after the v= is what you want.

    For example, the youtube URL, http://youtube.com/watch?v=JFwCCL0Vh6U

    PHP:
    means you use [youtube]JFwCCL0Vh6U[/youtube]
    Here's what that code does . . .

    [youtube]JFwCCL0Vh6U[/youtube]

    Please use this feature sparingly. If the video is non-work friendly, remember to say so on the thread title by adding "NWF" or "not work friendly" to it.

    Enjoy :beer:

    Good question. I'll see if I can figure something out for google video. Putfile is probably a no go though.

    Alright Kid A, here ya go for google videos. Take the code after docid= in the google video URL and stick it in our googlevideo BBcode. Here's an example from the following URL:

    from
    PHP:
    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-162891478515007486
    you'll use the following tag:
    PHP:
     [googlevideo]-162891478515007486[/googlevideo]
    That previous example:

    [googlevideo]-162891478515007486[/googlevideo]

    I cant find what they use for their embed code. All the videos I checked on putfile have "Sorry Code Not Available Yet" where the embed code is supposed to be.

    First it's Snakes on a Plane, and now Ghost Rider. Aren't the movie makers even trying anymore?

    question: does the "youtube" spell out between the brackets need to be caps? or is there some recent glitch in the matrix?

    I've always just done lowercase. I have noticed a few issues lately but for the most part it still works fine.

    Ok...because I thought that was part of the URL. At least when you look at the example the OP posted.

    still doesnt work.

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/_nDt6cr6lq0&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/_nDt6cr6lq0&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>
