XF 1.4 BB code media for photobucket?

#1
Hi all,

Have been trying to add "photobucket" as a supported site for embedding videos on my forum and can't seem to get it working.

I read throguh the instructions in the manual section of XF, but it is for the original version of xf, perhaps there is some simplified way now? Has anyone tried to include photobucket in their bb code media sites?

Thanks in advance!

Here is an example video embed code which I found on Photobucket:

http://s746.photobucket.com/user/2010jorgetavares/media/Thecat.mp4.html
HTML:
<embed width="600" height="361" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullscreen="true" allowNetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf" flashvars="file=http%3A%2F%2Fvid746.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fxx103%2F2010jorgetavares%2FThecat.mp4&title=The%20cat">
If you use flashvars for your {$id} token that might work?

Thanks Optic, I am not sure what you mean by flashvars for {$id}...I need to try to learn this stuff, but have no idea where to start. Is there a good public resource of some sort somewhere that might help a newbie walk through some of this type of coding ?
