That sounds good.There is an admin interface to let you define what sites you want to support, provided you can get the ID from the URL and structure the embed code.
Unfortunately you can't display FLV videos through an HTML5 video player, so unless the video-hosting site supports HTML5, it's not really an option. But I do agree that it would be nice if they included it. It's definitely the way forward.I hope that if local file video posting becomes an option that so will the HTML5 Video Tag... I am a big fan of it and you can nest the normal embed tag inside it for fallback option.
Just noticed this.There is an admin interface to let you define what sites you want to support, provided you can get the ID from the URL and structure the embed code.
Yeah, though looking at their URL and embed code, it might not be 100% obvious what you need to do. As an example, for this video: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xe0cgb_practicing-medicine_funJust noticed this.
So that means we can add e.g. DailyMotion and the same Media button on the editor will work for all sites configured?
I wish embedding would be done as in AME 2.5 mod for vB. Just paste URL in your message and it automatically embeds the video. It supports over 150 video/audio/game sites and locally hosted videos.Yeah, though looking at their URL and embed code, it might not be 100% obvious what you need to do. As an example, for this video: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xe0cgb_practicing-medicine_fun
The embed code points to: http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/video/xe0cgb
If you compare those two URLs, you can see the ID (xe0cgb), but you need to be able to pick that out of the URL vs the embed code and modify them both so it's pluggable. Not impossible by any means, but it's not exactly plug and play. The setup code is easy to share though.

Thanks Mike.Yeah, though looking at their URL and embed code, it might not be 100% obvious what you need to do.
You do realise that XenForo is a forum?I think this BB-Code-stuff is very Forum-specific code and I did not see it being used anywhere else.
yeah, so why not make XenForo the first Forum without the need of using strange BB-Codes ?You do realise that XenForo is a forum?
Aside from the quote tag, what BB code are you seeing on average? That's really the point of the WYSIWYG editors that you see these days. The average user won't be exposed to much BB code. Generally speaking, BB codes become visible when you do something more advanced, or when it's needed to provide semantic meaning/markup above what HTML provides (customizable quote tags, syntax highlighting, etc).any chance to code XenForo without any BB-Code ?
So why do we need a BB-Code (whatever that is...) for a website ? Just to make the "Smileys" appear ?
Why does the user need the mess with [tube][/tube]
instead of giving him a list to select which kind of video-source (e.g. YouTube) he wants to paste the URL into XenForo ?
Is FakeBook using any BB-Code ?
Click the media button (last button on the second row). Automatically turning URLs into media is a different aspect/feature.the need for using some code and brackets in order to show the video in embedded form....which is not user-friendly UI
Also clicking on your video, opens-up a new window to YouTube instead of directly playing at the XenForo-website.
