Re: How to embed YouTube videos in this forum

Hi all,
Unfortunately the YouTube videos have all been turned into links after the forum upgrade. I have no way to fix it. But I fixed the YouTube BBCode though so they can be embedded again. To re-embed a YouTube video in your post that already has the YouTube tags around it, simply edit it by clicking on the pencil icon in your post, and changing at least one character in it, then resubmitting it. Please note that you have to change at least one character in the post, or the video will not embed. Once you do, the video will re-embed. I've tested it and that's how it works.

Thanks for your attention,
Admin

New Video Plugin!

I've installed a media plugin here that will let you embed video from many websites. Simply use the button in your post forum that looks like a TV screen, next to the "mention, vimeo, youtube" buttons, and it will generate some media tags that look like this.

Code: Select all

[media]external URL of media[/media]
Here is a list of sites you can use it with. Not you can't use it with YouTube or Vimeo though because there are already YouTube and Vimeo BBCodes and buttons here to use, and they cannot be used twice with a new plug in. I'd have to remove the YouTube and Vimeo BBCodes before this media plugin can embed them. I don't know if I will ever do that, because there are already too many YouTube tags in posts here. So for now, just use the YouTube tags to embed YouTube videos, and use Vimeo tags for Vimeo videos, and the media tags for everything else.

Here is a list of sites the media tags can be used to embed video from:

http://s9etextformatter.readthedocs.io/ ... bed/Sites/
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/download/136051

Try it and see if it works.

Winston it is NOT working I have done exactly what you said and I still can't embed YouTube videos. Even when I put the entire YouTube link in again, it still won't embed it. It only works for some YouTube videos, most of time it does not work when I try to embed YouTube videos.

Why not? Can you post the URLs of YouTube videos you are trying to embed? Are there extra tags in them like this "&t=" or "&list" etc? See my example above. The URL has to be very basic and not shortened.

I've tried it and it works. Are you trying to re-post videos? If so you have to change at least one character in the post before re-submitting it.

Ok I'm going to use the new media tags to try to embed a Star Wars teaser video from Imdb.com now. See below.

Here's the URL from Imdb.com wrapped around the media tags.

Code: Select all

[media]http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi983676953?playlistId=tt2527336&ref_=tt_ov_vi[/media]
Here's what it looks like embedded.

Just to let you all know, the YouTube embed code will not work with the mobile URL prefix like this "m.youtube.com", it has to be the regular version like this "www.youtube.com".
