  • Posting embedded video ?

    Trying to allow posting of video that displays as an open frame when viewing a post but I can only get the code and the link to display how do I set VB to allow this. I tried turning on "allow HTML" but that didn't do it. Trying paste here also


    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/uIzJVncH0CY?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



    Thats all I get on my forum also.

    You need to use the filmstrip button on the editor menu bar and paste the actual Youtube URL there. vBulletin will create the embed code to make sure it is safe.

        Sorry... I didn't realize what forum this was in. My fault.

        Unfortunately vBulletin 3.8.X doesn't have built in support video embedding. However enabling HTML should work as long as all the code is on a single line. If it doesn't check out the Automatic Media Embedding (AME) addon at www.vbulletin.org. It will allow you to embed media in your posts.

          If you want to show YouTube Video's in vBulletin 3, which is what I think you want to do. Add a new BBCode using this I recently created on my test site using vB 3.7. This will put a border around you video as well to look better and makes use of a YouTube theme to do away with the default "Black Look", and the editor icon is included below you need for using.

          If you don't want to use the YouTube theme, remove this from the code: "theme=light&amp;color=white&amp;" and change Width and Height to this instead "480x360" or "640x480".

          Note: that "FULL SCREEN" mode is disabled using this added in code (&amp;fs=0). And this removed allowfullscreen

          Example of (full screen included, but using theme based look). I removed full screen because early versions of IE have problems with it, so use YouTube feature options to completely disable it by adding "fs=0" and removing "allowfullscreen".
          <iframe width="560" height="349" style="border: 1px solid #0B198C; padding: 2px; background-color: #FFFFFF" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/{param}?theme=light&amp;color=white" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
          ===

          Title: YouTube
          BB Code Tag Name: youtube

          Replacement:
          Code:
          <iframe width="560" height="349" style="border: 1px solid #0B198C; padding: 2px; background-color: #FFFFFF" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/{param}?theme=light&amp;color=white&amp;fs=0" frameborder="0"></iframe>
          Example: [youtube]cxumiloua2Q[/youtube]

          Description:
          Code:
          The [youtube] tag allows you to play video's in posts using the youtube code highlighted in red in this example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<font color="#FF0000">kwcHChqcXfo</font>.
          Use {option}: No
          Button Image (Optional): images/editor/youtube.gif
          Remove Tag If Empty: Yes
          Disable BB Code Within This BB Code: Yes

              You can also turn off video annotations if you want, those annoying messages displayed in-video at the start which is enabled by default. To do it add this code at the end with the AMP before it used to separate it from "&amp;fs=0".

              Code: &amp;iv_load_policy=3

              So it would look like this "&amp;fs=0&amp;iv_load_policy=3"

              Now video's won't show video annotations unless a person clicks the button to show them manually.

                Thank you for posting this. It does work for me very well. However, I did try to use this bbcode first that is suggested everywhere but it did not work for some for reason and it seems to work for some and not for others.

                Code:
                <object width="425" height="355"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}"></param> <param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param> <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{param}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed> </object>
                Your code looks so much better but can you tell me what is the difference between your code and this one?
