    New audio/video embedding feature added - I NEED YOUR OPINION!!

    Hi everyone!

    Recently, I found a really cool video embedding feature that I wanted to run past all of you and see what the TRC thought of it

    It's super easy to use and supports video embedding from many different sites (not just You Tube).

    So far, the list is:

    apple
    espn
    metacafe
    spikedhumor
    vimeo
    break
    filecabi
    jumpcut
    myspace
    porkolt
    stage6 [deleted]
    xtube [deleted]
    collegehumor
    godtube [deleted]
    megarotic [deleted]
    myspacetv
    pornotube [deleted] - Thanks Ty!
    veoh
    yahoo
    dailymotion
    google
    megavideo
    photobucket-inwork
    sevenload
    viddler
    youtube
    and growing.


    Anyways, it's really easy to use, all you need is the BBCode "media". If you are unfamilar with what BBCode tags are, go here.

    To use this particular BBCode, just take the full URL of your video and wrap it in the media BBCode tag :

    HTML Code:
    [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_gto3YIpT0[/url]



    Resulting in:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_gto3YIpT0We may eventually turn this into a button that you can use in the toolbox in a post, but for now we're sticking with the BBCode.Now, here's where all of you come in. I would love it if everyone in the TRC could help out here and test out this feature. Only test this out in this thread though, because we haven't decided if we're going to keep it. I'd hate to see someone using this feature all over the TRC only for us to pull it and their videos don't come up anymore.

    Of course with everything new there may be a few bugs, so if you find those, be sure to mention it as well!

    This sounds like it would be a really good idea.

    The problem I have with videos is I don't get sound from many that I know have sound when I am in Linux (most of the time). I hate having to reboot into Windows just to see and hear some cool videos. Even with some YouTube videos that I know have sound, I don't get it when in Linux, but others I do and I don't know why that is.

    That sux! Guess you should be using Windows more often then, huh, j/k

    Seriously though Dale, if you could check this feature out for me and let me know what you think, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    I have been thinking about adding some early development videos of W.A.L.T.E.R. to my thread about him, just to show everyone where he has come from. That would be good, but these are all on YouTube so might not make the greatest test. I will try uploading some to other sources your plugin supports.

    You don't want xtube or stage6 (shutdown) either.

    I think this is Alex's sneaky way of trying to get us to post pr0n and then get banned.

    I'm onto you Alex!



    btw: megarotic looks questionable too. I'm not going to find out as I'm at work though

    Dammit! You mad me



    Thanks guys!, I'll figure out how to remove xtube, stage6 and megarotica. Keep the comments coming!
