I said I would have to come up with some custom BB tag for you, which would let you include youtube videos :)

this is Funny! i just sent you an e-mail to look at this post. lol!!

so, can you also make it that people can upload videos directly from their computer?? and then there is the whole 3rd party picture issue. many of my posters use Photobucket, and use <img src=blah blah> to post their pics. tim

Hi,

Doing images is simple - just use:



[img]http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/48504000/jpg/_48504116_bpspill.jpg[/img]

So all they would need is the URL to the image, and they can put it on your forum :)

For the youtube, its pretty simple - just make a new tag, something like [youtube]12334565[/youtube] )(where 12334565 is the video ID from youtube)

For uploading videos - they would just have to use the "Upload Attachment" feature when writing/editing posts ... and then people could just click on those to download and view the video.,

Cheers

Yeah... we could even go a bit further and use the Image Fit plugin for jQuery to make sure the images are never too large.

Alternativly, we could even write a little plugin that would grab the image from the site they gave, and then shrink it down to a much more reasonable size (and then just link to the original)

Cheers

Again, not a hard tweak to make (mainly just template changes, and a simple little global Smile)

that sounds Good too! what would be even nicer, is a script that would compress those videos. i doubt any Forum has that because i don't think it can be done. tim

It is possible - you need a thing called FFMPEG (http://www.ffmpeg.org/ ), and this can then convert the videos into .flv format (and also you can shrink them to a more desirable size) ... not too complated to do (assuming GT will install it on your hosting account for you :))
