I've been on a few other forums, some vbulletin some not and usually there's a consistent format for embedding videos.
Either a little icon, usually a mini film strip, you click on it and paste the YouTube link. Admins on sites used BB codes (disclaimer I'm not super knowledgeable forum admin type person, just have learned bits and pieces along the way).
On other forums it was [video]..link
...[/video] that consistently would embed the youtube video in the post.
I did a search on this forum and found this question posed and MaggieRose answered in one thread that sometime links will cut and paste and show as a link only and some will embed (the shorter links) but there wasn't a specific 'how to' embed.
I was able to get my test youtube link to embed in some threads but not others, same link. Which was interesting, (added &feature player embed) which worked some of the times too.
So my question for the board gurus is, can we have a 'button' that will consistently embed videos (like we have for images) OR perhaps a step by step tutorial on how to consistently embed videos?
IMO it would be a nice feature!
Thanks in advance for any help.
