I'm curious if phpBB 3.0 will allow for embedding of youtube or google video.

Yes you will be able to use YouTube and Google Video, just use the custom bb codes.

Its very simple, i can post what you need to add if you want.

Don't even need to use the custom ones. The inbuilt flash BBCode will do just fine.

Google Video:



Youtube:



That was

Code: Select all

Google Video:

I'm sorry. But when I said "embedded" I mean "visible on the page", not just a link using the built in flash bbcode. Any way to do this?

Yes...

Just create a custom BB code called "youtube" and one called "googlevideo" that takes a url and then inserts it with HTML code.

By saying phpBB v3 is getting rid HTML is not exactly correct. BBcodes are replacing the use of HTML. If you want to use the embed code of HTML you just have to create a BBcode that calls for the embed HTML tag.

Ah, so if I take the embed tags and everything between them as a custom bbcode, the video should show up and run directly in the forum?

I'll need to experiment a bit and see if it'll work. :)

With the flash BBCode, users have choice to show (or not) Flash animations in the posts. Have a look to your UCP.

Ah, good answer. I didn't have it set right.

With the standard flash option, one can easily embed youtube or google video quite easily.

Just have to set the proper size and url.

Like so.

Code: Select all
