This video looks at some of the improvements we have made to the BB code media system in XenForo 1.1, allowing you to embed media from a far wider variety of sources.


Update:

Let's call this rapid feedback reaction or something buzz-wordy like that. Anyway, just a few hours after posting the last video, I have a little update for you :)

OHH MY GOD ..... yes I was talking to you Kier :) , I could not ever have guessed that you would be including this kind of functionality into the media site bbcode functionality.

I am so thankful here....I nearly hurt myself trying to include a few sites....if I can't do it now...there is no excuses.

THANK YOU!

Sweet! Looks like it's a bit more flexible than the one we got in 1.0. and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Great work as always and an awesome tutorial on how to use it :)

Kier,

Why must you always post this stuff when I am about to start class and can not watch it? But however, I look forward to watching this in about an hour or two when I get out of class and have the time to watch it.

You wouldn't believe how noisy they were being (well, maybe you could, given that you could hear them on my near-field microphone)
TBH I am going to have to listen again....I was so absorbed in the callback and pcre functions that I really didn't hear anything that wasn't you telling me how to use it :)
Kier,

To make this the killer function it could be, allow exporting of the whole BB Code media or single BB Code media and then imports as well.
The problem with that is the callback function method uses an actual php doc so you still would need to manually gather the files to share them...right?

also a side note...i just found out accidentally that Ctrl+b clicks on the bold button in tinymce

The regex/code and the embed details are stored in the DB, allow us to export either the whole lot or individual items for sharing. The callback function would only be used for specialist codes at a guess?

If you have ever used AME (for vbulletin) you would understand how great this would be.

I hear kids as well in the video... no idea how you can program with kids making noises, it would drive me crazy.

As for the video it looks great, cant wait for 1.1 and hopefully more videos on the way. :)

Trust me, I understand at least how great exporting of bbcode definitions is. :) It takes a lot longer to share a code when you have to make a text post to explain how it is used but it isn't a deal breaker (however if exporting of media sites is enabled you will not see me complain at all)

WOW I didn't even get to respond and already that issue is squashed LOL ...I love this place.
