Cover it live integration

Not sure if this is the best place to put this but our forum is heavy sports discussion based and with football season coming up a group of users were asking about cover it live as a chat feature.

I thought it would be pretty basic as they give you a code and you simply paste it in the thread you want to talk about the specific event.

However I created one quickly and it doesn't work even though the site claims it works on every site. Here is what I got:
<iframe src="http://www.coveritlive.com/index2.p.../altcast_code=0421d5a112/height=550/width=470" scrolling="no" height="550px" width="470px" frameBorder ="0" ><a href="http://www.coveritlive.com/mobile.php/option=com_mobile/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=0421d5a112" >YSU vs. MSU</a></iframe>

Is there a way to get the actual box to show up within Xenforo?

You could embed the iframe in a page quite easily.

Media Site ID:​

This will be used to identify the media site to load in the BB code.

You may use * as a wildcard, and {$id} to point to the media's ID. This ID will then be referenced in the embed code. Put each URL on a separate line.

Enter {$id} where you want the user-entered media ID to
Hey Andy I think you might need to wrap that in code or something because I can't see any of the actual inputs.
