Embedding??
« on: May 20, 2010, 05:45:46 AM »
Just suggesting/wondering if it'd be possible to allow embedded videos on here??

Just tried to post one, didn't work, unless you have to do it some other funny way...

Proposing this because sometimes there's so much info, it's easier for one to interpret/understand better with a video, and some people (like me) can get lazy sometimes to click links to pop up more windows, and therefore sometimes miss out on some good info, humorous info, and so on.  Maybe it's just me but I like to be able to watch a short clip of video if necessary right here with the thread or post. 

Possible?

I tried posting a humorous vid in Eon's Nicotiana thread about the subject, only would come up as a link tho...

And I'm sure some of you 'more-focused' people have no problem clicking every link and watching/listening/reading it.  Maybe it's just me, but I have a short-attention span sometimes with tedious things.  Just a small convenience question I guess.

Hey GB, not sure if code is enabled on the forum.  If you wanted to embed I'm guessing you'd have to get the Embed code from the source first such as below.

Unfortunately it didn't work as expected....what do you think Pk?

Code: [Select]
<object width="500" height="405"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/EOb-Jtc8zcU&hl=en_US&fs=1&border=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/EOb-Jtc8zcU&hl=en_US&fs=1&border=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="500" height="405"></embed></object>

It takes modifications to embed things. It doesnt work by default and you can't use html in posts for security reasons.
