    Lightbulb HOW-TO: Embed Videos in Posts

    I am going to document the various bbcode we have implemented to allow you to embed videos into posts.

    I will discuss each code in a separate post.

    25-MAR-2014: The method to post videos has changed in the new version of the forums. Please see Post #11 below for details. The methods described below should still also work, but are more cumbersome to use.

    Embed YouTube Video

    This is the only video embed that has a button toolbar for the WYSIWYG editor. All you have to do is insert the value for the "v" parameter in the youtube.com URL for the respective video.

    For example, for this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFUBfniDoMg

    Use this BBCode:

    HTML Code:
    [youtube]oFUBfniDoMg[/youtube]

    Embed MSNBC Video

    Embed MSNBC Video: msnbc.com - Breaking news, science and tech news, world news, US news, local news- msnbc.com

    When you click on a video on MSNBC, you get a popup window with a URL like:

    HTML Code:
    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/43274811#43274811
    The last number after the # is the parameter you need. In this example: 43274811

    HTML Code:
    [msnbc]43274811[/msnbc]

    Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

    Embed Hulu Video

    Embed Hulu Video: Hulu - Watch your favorites. Anytime. For free.

    Copy the embed code for the desired video. It will look something like this:

    HTML Code:
    <object width="512" height="288"><param name="movie" value="http://www.hulu.com/embed/RJgLCbjmk0NAjmh84WDBPA"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.hulu.com/embed/RJgLCbjmk0NAjmh84WDBPA" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"  width="512" height="288" allowFullScreen="true"></embed></object>
    the parameter is the value immediately after hulu.com/embed/

    in this case: RJgLCbjmk0NAjmh84WDBPA

    HTML Code:
    [hulu]RJgLCbjmk0NAjmh84WDBPA[/hulu]
    [ Sorry, Hulu no longer supports embedded videos. ]

    That's all we have programmed for now. Happy to entertain additional requests from other mainstream video sites.

    are you going to put the 'button' back fro youtube .... and maybe create some more
    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    There is a button for YouTube. In Advanced mode, the bottom row of functions has a separator (|), then a blank button. If you hover over it you'll see that it is a YouTube tag generator.

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	YouTubeButton.jpg 
Views:	125

    In addition, you can click the Video Button (the little filmstrip icon) and it will let you embed video from a URL.



    But hand tagging is what separates the point and clickers from the cool kids, and good thing to know.
