  • How do I display and run a .mpeg or other web movie within my forums frame?

    I want to keep the outer frame, forum navigation bars, forum logo and one banner zone, but have the movie expand to be full size within that frame...

    I wonder if this is possible

    If I host the movie?
    If the movie is hosted elsewhere?
    And if I can display embedded 'YouTube' links in my forum frame also

    like this one <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>

    The point of this is I wish to build up an educational archive of web movies, but I don't want to send my visitors to other sites to see them, I want my visitors to watch the movies within my forum frame. so they never leave and my forum keeps its "stickyness"

    I would prefer some sort of cheat where my server doesn't take the bandwidth hit...

    (I would get permission in advance from the film maker by the way, just in case that was an issue..)

    any advice much appreciated...

    admincp > Forums and Moderator > Edit Forum > Allow Html - yes
