Embedding videos

Post by Age. » Thu Sep 06, 2012 2:27 pm

Being fed up with people posting (and failing) embedded Youtube videos, I've hunted down a better code.

Now, when posting a video, all you have to do is wrap it in "video" tags.

i.e.

Code: Select all

[video]http://vimeo.com/40558553[/video]
Supported video services

Currently the following video services are supported:
  • youtube.com (youtu.be) - playlists are also supported
    vimeo.com
    rutube.ru — it is recommended to use the URL from the embed code
    vk.com (vkontakte.ru) — the URL from the embed code is required
    facebook.com
    metacafe.com
    clipfish.de
    veevr.com
    video.mail.ru
    smotri.com
    video.qip.ru
    video.google.com
    video.yandex.ru — the URL from the embed code is required
    video.bigmir.net
    tvigle.ru — the URL from the embed code is required
    video.online.ua
    video.sibnet.ru
    yapfiles.ru

URLs do not need to be cleaned from the garbage arguments as our [video] will work it out. You can use both the URL of the video page and the URL of the embed code (unless other instructions are given).

So this means you no longer have to post the exact Youtube URL. IT can contain https:// or &featured or any of the other nonsense that somehow sneaks into the URL!

Enjoy!
