Implemented Auto embed video

    Would be great of instead clicking the video embedding button to add an url, the url was automatically detected and converted.

    Sometimes I want to link to the media page and don't want it embedded; then what?

    This has been brought up and I must admit I did enjoy the AME modification over on vBorg... not sure if I'd use it enough to comment though.

    There'd either be a [no-embed] tag you could wrap around the URL so that it still parses as a link, but doesn't embed... -OR- there would be an option within the post to "disable auto-embedding" (just like AME does it).

    Just some ideas. :D

    AME was one of those things I -always- installed.

    Probably one of my all time favorites.

    I have an auto embed youtube videos on my forum for several years. It's extremely popular.

    I like how Posterous handle image and video links. It automatically embeds them...

    Links to images and videos can be auto embedded. Removing the need to have to two buttons on the toolbar for the same.

    Yeah, video embedding is both really cool and really useful, and even at the same time.;)

    I really hope it will be implemented.

    Both my users and I like to distinguish between a linked video and an embedded video. So hopefully if this is added it will be configurable.

    I would like this feature also. Many of my members just put a link and I constantly have to edit their post to embed.. :/

    I didn't find any threads with this topic, but I'm sure it has been mentioned several times. I would really like XenForo to automatically recognize links to media sites such as YouTube and Vimeo (and other popular sites), so they will be embedded directly.

    It's just not easy enough for people having to click the Media-button and then paste the link. This should be done automatically. The alternative is to be forever stuck with teaching new users about the need to use the Media-button for embedding.

    In my former vBulletin-forum this was done elegantly through a plugin.

    If there is such an add-on (which I have missed), please lead me in the right direction.

    You can do this very easily with UrlRewriter...

    Although... I personally think its a terrible idea. Its specifically why my XenMedio mod doesn't embed media directly into posts, but embeds an overlay trigger instead. When I was using a mod like this on my forums, we would end up with a single page with something like 30 youtube players embedded on the page... all these players, where you really only cared to watch 1 of them, or none of them still take up memory and resources on your computer.

    It pretty much makes browsing on cell phones impossible.

    There is one addon here that converts youtube/ebay/amazon links to embedded video, affiliates, etc.

    Check it out.

    The biggest issue I can see with this is the overhead of checking all links for media site matches... but maybe something can be done. I'll take a look.
