Recommended Posts

Having trouble embedding youtube videos using the bbc for media or youtube.

 

Ex: Trying to post this video using the media tags gives us just a link

I would like to know how to do this too jeff! Was easy before the new format. I have just been cutting and pasteing the URL and sometimes it just embeds all by itself! Could the mods also stop woody from doing it at all. or at least maybe just limit him to 50 vids each day. Fuck!

BUG!! I was just pasting the media URL in a post. that would work some times .

 

 

Here is an even better one:




edit: how do you embed the videos??


Ive been typing media bracketed pasting the url page the videos on or the copy of the source url then /media bracketed

Click Quote on this post below to see what it looks like. On the posting tool bar the first icon will switch to http. click it to see what your machine sees.

Thanks. But that's annoying that you have to do it manually. I thought there was a media button but it seems to be missing.

Jfc, please fix this shit---it's beyond annoying and it's screwing with my moblow....

Still can only post a link....I'd like to say the "search" function led me here, but it didn't.

 

Does Clean ever even look in this section?

If you just paste a youtube URL, it works, but it has to be a normal, clean URL. The ones at youtu.be don't seem to activate the auto-embedding, nor do ones with a buncha junk on the end of the URL.

The button next to the font drop down allows special BBC code, select media and paste link seems to work for me

This isn't intuitive. You certainly need to play around with it. So here goes...

Okay, so in this latest iteration of the board software, how does a person embed a youtube vid?

I seem to remember in the previous version, there was a way to toggle html editing in the post editing window, then it was just a matter of some tags [media] [/media], but I can't seem to find where to click for that now...

all that does for me is put a link in the post -- it doesn't actually embed the vid.

ok , is the word feature in the url ?

 

if so put the vid title into the uTube search box and find the plain url , then use that .

It would be helpful if we could insert a Word file (.docx) or a PDF. In the FOOD thread in General Anarchy, I tried attaching each type, and while I could open them up, it seems no one else could.  

As some of my recipes are three or more pages long, copying and pasting the text really is not a reasonable option. 

Suggestion to Management: Could you change the code a bit to allow people to upload PDF files or Word docs?

Is there something I am not doing correctly to embed a link with a (occasionally) pithy remark?

Doing it the way I was taught some time ago, all I get is this -

Some HTML, including embedding, is disabled to avoid anyone putting malicious code in a thread,. The forum software auto-embeds certain types of post, or you can use the link, image, or other buttons in the editing pane to work around it.

You select the text you wish to make into a link, press the appropriate button, and paste in the URL in the box.
