How to Embed

Post by Minty Kitty on Wed Jan 16, 2013 6:04 pm

Since the Update to 4.0, Embedding from Youtube was messed up.

You could not embed just by copying the Embed link.

However, through a test, i have figured out how to.

You must use the OLD Youtube Embed Code for it to work. As our current Forum Version does not support the new Embed Code.

To get this new Code follow the steps below:

1: Find your Video


2: Go to the Share Tab, Then Embed.


3: Check the Box on the bottom that says "Use Old Embed Code"


4: Copy the Old Embed Code and paste it into your Post



5: Change Both the Dimension Values in the Code to change the Aspect Ratio of your Video. This will determine how large and wide your video will show, note this does NOT Change the actual Size of the CONTENT, just the player.


6: Click Send, your done! :)


Happy Embedding!

meh, i actually may have an idea on how to fix the forum. but manga has to do it. the problem is the php files handling youtube, image, and other stuff were damaged. to fix it manga probably has backup up this theme first. then switch to an invision theme. after that switch to a random phpbb theme then reload the current theme back in. this is just a theory on how to fix it. if it doesn't work then its the theme code causing it and only way to test that is load the theme you got into another forum.

Embeding has changed once again so here is new instructions:

there is a button in the reply editor for youtube just put the link there to insert the link.
but if you want to have it different dimensions you need to do more.

click preview and it should show you flash instead of youtube (if it doesn't show you might have to send post, then edit the post after to see it. same can said be for signature.)

your going then see next to one of the flash tags the dimensions




Code:
[flash(640,360)]http://www.youtube.com/v/MPf0FL4JOLE[/flash]

default size is 425X350
